The spectacular landscape and vegetation along this route give you an idea of how lush the north of Tenerife was in the past.
The route passes along the Nueva and Bermeja trails, crossing the Corona Forestal Natural Park, framed by the summits of the Teide National Park, the Tigaiga mountain slopes, the north coast and the slopes of La Resbala. You will discover some geological treasures along the route, such as deep ravines and striking lava flows. If you pay attention, you will be able to spot the changes in colour in the strata of the terrain to the sides of the trail.
As you descend you will pass through a variety of different plant formations, beginning with a Canary Island pine forest, along with broom bushes, the Teide alelí (Erysimum scoparium), and the rosalillo de cumbre (Pterocephalus lasiospermus). You will notice that forestry services have opened up some clearings to reduce competition among the trees.
The trail continues through a mixed pine forest (Monterey and Canary), with a wide variety of species that are particularly beautiful in spring and autumn, during the flowering and fruit-bearing periods.
