Camino de Guatifay

 Camino de Guatifay

Welcome to the start of an interesting hiking route, located between the towns of Guinate and Ye on the northern side of the island! 

This route contains a large range of biodiversity and is distant from all the noise generated from the roads. 

This is how the trail starts to look like, once you get closer and closer to the Risco which will allow you to witness these fantastic views of La Graciosa and the rest of the Arhcipiélago Chinijo:

I mean look at this

Visibility wasn't the greatest the day I hiked this trail, however, it normally has such a clear view it looks like you're staring at a painting at an exclusive art museum. 

This is an example of Maritime Sunburst Lichen, otherwise known as Xanthoria parietina, it is a foliose, or leafy, lichen. It has a wide distribution, and many common names such as common orange lichen, yellow scale, maritime sunburst lichen, and shore lichen. It can be found near the shore on rocks or walls, and also on inland rocks, walls, or tree bark

The trail is the home of many different types of plant, insect, and bird species:

Look at this cute little beatle!

And also, look at this great view of the Volcán de La Corona:

This trail will take you to the start of another, the hiking route toward the Playa del Risco (which you can find my blog post about this beach here: Playa del Risco):

So as always, go have fun and explore!
