Pico del Teide

Pico del Teide is a volcano  at an elevation of 2.725m (8,940m) above the sea level, located in Tenerife in the Canary Islands, Spain. It's one of the European highest roads.

It’s one of the highest roads of Spain. The road to the summit, located within the Teide National Park, is gravel, rocky, tippy and bumpy at times. It’s called Sendero Montaña Blanca. It’s totally closed to private vehicles but it’s in good conditions. The road is usually impassable from October to June (weather permitting). Great trail for experienced wheelers. Avoid driving in this area if unpaved mountain roads aren't your strong point. 4x4 vehicle required. Stay away if you're scared of heights. Thunderstorm activity can quickly change unpaved roads to four-wheel-drive condition or make them impassable.
The road ends near a mountain refuge called Refugio Altavista. Starting from the TF-21 road, at 2.351m above the sea level, the ascent is 4.6 km long. Over this distance the elevation gain is 374 meters. The average gradient is 8.13%.
