Sombrero de Chasna

Highlights

The Sombrero de Chasna (2405m) overlooks the town of Vilaflor and dominates the views of the Las Caņadas Ridge.

With larger groups where a minibus is available this can be tackled as a linear walk beginning at the Caņada Blanca Visitor Centre in the National Park and climbing onto the ridge before claiming the summit and descending through the pine forests to the Las Lajas BBQ area for a picnic lunch. This route is particularly impressive in May and June when it is know as the "ruta del Tajinaste" ("route of the Tajinaste") on account of it being one of the best ways to see the Tajinaste flowers in bloom.

With smaller groups, the Sombrero is tackled from the south, in the Pine Forests of the Corona Forestal Natural Park. The trail is steep and covers some 600m of ascent however once up onto the ridge you have the option of taking in a few other easy tops before claiming the Sombrero.

From the summit we enjoy spectacular views of Mount Teide, the Las Caņadas National Park and the south coast of Tenerife. Descent is via a different path back to the Las Lajas recreation area.
