Quick Description: Pico Bejenado 1854m is really worth the effort to climb it. And it is accessible to everyone who is fit. The ascent - good 700m - takes about 2 hours, the descent almost the same. On the top you will feel like an eagle.

Long Description:

Pico Bejenado 1854m
Mountain walk to La Palmas only "real" mountain summit. Bejenado is overlooking Caldera de Taburiente (Isla de La Palma - Canarias). From the top of Bejenado is one of the most inspiring views out over the caldera.

Starting point for the climb
Car to/from El Barrial, above Valencia. Turn off the El Paso/Santa Cruz road for La Combrecita (at the National Park Visitor Centre). Keep straight on at the first junction but, shortly after, turn left for Valencia. Sign: "Bejenado". Keep ahead on the road and park your car almost at the end of the tarmac road. Or if you are not afraid of driving on a bumpy road continue until the road again becomes tarmac. There is a small parking area where the walk to the top of Bejenado starts. N 28º 40.681 W 17º51.240.

The climb
If you continue to the small parking area mentioned above, you will find yourself as shown on the map below. I can recommed following the blue line to the top and the red down. On the way up you can chose a little detour to view some old stone carvings. Start as early as possible because clouds often cover Bejenado after 12 o'clock.

Map can be seen on the car park.
