La Zarza - Cruz del Gallo (PR LP 9.2)


Short walk along one of the most beautiful laurel forests on the island. Caldera del Agua and La Zarza are two impressive locations. Despite being a frequented route, a sensation of solitude is experienced, being silence broken only by the murmur of water, branches stirred by the wind or the flapping wings of birds startled by the hiker’s presence.
