This route is your gateway to a landscape that is undergoing a process of transformation as it is restored to its original state.
The section that connects the Las Calderetas Recreational Area with the Great North Route (BC 1) passes along a section of an ancient camino real (“royal road” or main island route), as can be seen by the remains of cobblestones between pine trees and monteverde reclaiming their territory.
In some places you will be fortunate to see some example of hija (Prunus lusitanica), a plant species which is abundant in the Anaga Massif but difficult to spot in other areas of the island. And if you are patient and quiet, it is an ideal location for spotting birds such as the Eurasian sparrowhawk, the Eurasian woodcock, and Bolle’s pigeon.
