Description

A thriving Canary Island pine forest creates the backdrop for this route from the Las Raíces Recreational Area to the La Esperanza Campsite. 

After a devastating fire destroyed this site in 1995, reforestation with pine and faya (Morella faya) has restored the ecological balance of this natural environment and its role in recharging the island’s underground aquifer.

All along the route, which crosses through many ravines, you will be able to admire the grandeur of many veteran pine trees, and a rich variety of shrubs, such as escobones (Chamaecytisus proliferus), codesos (Adenocarpus viscosus), and crestagallos (Isoplexis canariensis). 

If you keep an eye out, you will also be able to see Eurasian sparrowhawks, woodpeckers and blue chaffinches flitting among the branches. 

IBP Index: 2.

Tips

  • Always stay on the marked trail and do not enter private property, hunting grounds, water galleries, wells or caves.

  • Avoid direct encounters with potentially dangerous animals, such as livestock, beehives, and dogs. 
  • Proceed with caution and watch for obstacles, loose rocks, uneven terrain or steep slopes to avoid accidents and falls.
