Description

This trail immerses you in a rich and fascinating Canary Island pine forest with monteverde undergrowth, undergoing restoration after the fire of 2007.

From the Las Hayas Recreational Area, the trail climbs through pine forests along the Fonduco de Josefa and Las Hayas trails, before connecting with route BC 1. 

The most interesting thing about the route are the variations in vegetation that accompany the predominant Canary Island pine, with a high concentration of faya (Morella faya) around the recreational area, to species such as tree heath (Erica arborea) and acebiño (Ilex canariensis), both abundant in the area. After the fire, some trees have also developed curious crowns in the form of “feather dusters”, favouring the propagation of species such as jaras (Cistus symphytifolius) and codesos (Adenocarpus viscosus), which require more light. 

Dotted around the pine forest you can see some very large trees known as “pinos padre”, survivors from a time in which intense timber exploitation put this valuable resource in danger. 

And if you do this route at the end of summer, you will be able to enjoy the blossom of the flax-leaved daphne (Daphne gnidium). But don’t be fooled by its beauty. This plant has an irritant effect and is poisonous, so you should take care and avoid direct contact.

IBP Index: 2.
