The Km Vertical starts at Puerto de Tazacorte Beach (o m.), and continues through the emblematic GR-131, in the opposite direction of Ultra Trail’s course. On this stretch, the path ascends the cliff face of El Time until the township of Tijarafe, in the old Bananas Warehouse (273 m.). There you will enjoy a wonderful panoramic view of Tazacorte and its coastline. Then, the route continues its ascent alternating path and road until reaching the View Point Restaurant El Time (513 m.).


The climb follows the GR-131 track, up to the emblematic Hungarian House (624 m). At this point, we leave the GR-131 track and get into a local trail, in the township of Tijarafe. The TV antenna (722 m.) and the emblematic Viewpoint of Piedra del Guanche (750 m.) will be witnesses of the runners passing by.


The path continues its ascent and connect again with the GR.131 (1.000 m) to finally reach the forest lookout tower of El Time (1.600 m.) (Tijarafe). A route with a length of 7.6 kilometers and 1.203 meters of elevation where runners will be rewarded with the astonishing views of the Northeast side of the Island and the Aridane Valley.
