This route plunges you right from the start into a magical landscape as you are surrounded by the dense vegetation of the monteverde woodland.
As you climb the track, the plant life changes as you gain altitude. Soon you will begin to see other species of vegetation, such as fayal-brezal and pine forest with an understorey of tagasaste and codeso.
If you stop for a moment once you are deep in the forest you will be able to hear the life that lurks amongst the foliage, especially the small birds such as chiffchaffs and blackcaps, or the laurel pigeons concealed amongst the trees, one of the species endemic to the laurel forest.
You will also spot some of the colourful plants that thrive alongside the monteverde, such as follao (Viburnum rigidum), morgallana or Canary buttercup (Ranunculus cortusifolius) and cresta de gallo (Isoplexis canariensis).
