The route starts at Chanajiga, where you will delight in the beautiful vegetation on the slopes of Tiagaiga.
During the ascent on the track you will see how the monteverde species mix with the Monterey and Canary Island pines, creating a palette of different shades of green.
As you gain altitude, the monteverde disappears to make way for an understorey of tree heath (Erica arborea), codeso (Adenocarpus foliolosus) and tagasaste (Cytisus proliferus); a type of vegetation that is ideal for the woodpecker owing to the abundance of dead pine trees that it can use for nesting. If you stop, you may well see some of them pecking at the pines in search of food.
You will also be able to spot a whole host of small birds that feed on the seeds of these plant species, and even the odd sparrowhawk soaring above the forest.
