Visiting the Juniper Tree
Leaving the village of Frontera, we will climb up through the protected area of Mencáfete, a green area covered with juniper trees and laurisilva. Then we will go down again to Sabinosa, where the route becomes more difficult and climbs sharply to the summit. There we will enjoy wonderful views of the volcanoes and the coastline as far as Orchilla Lighthouse.
There are trails that you can run along all the way to the viewpoint at the Juniper Tree. A magical place bathed in a unique light that provides a wonderful panoramic view. From here on, the route is through an open landscape to the end at the Shrine to the Virgin de Kings.
This route forms the first half of the Meridian Marathon.
