Leaving the town of Vilaflor de Chasna behind you, you will come to the path of Camino del Atajo, which is part of the old Royal Pathway of Chasna that once linked the north of the Island to the south. After entering the pine forest, you will walk past the house of Casa Galindo on the verge of the Las Mesas ravine.
You will then have to cross the ravine to continue your ascent along the Camino de Chasna path, affording fabulous views of the hilltops. On your way down, you will come to the lookout point of Los Escurriales (Lunar Landscape) and a trail that takes you past the house of Casa Los Llanitos before leading you back onto the path you walked up which takes you back to Vilaflor.
