This route passes through large areas of forest affected by storms that brought down entire areas of pine forest, mostly Monterey pine.

After clearing the affected trees, the management teams have worked on numerous reforestation projects to convert these areas of the Orotava Valley into monteverde or humid pine forests. 

The species used for reforestation depend on the altitude and topography, as some species are better suited to certain conditions than others. 

Specifically, in this area you will find new plantations of Canary Island pine, juniper, faya (Morella faya), acebiño (Ilex canariensis), tagasaste (Cytisus proliferus), sanguinos (Rhamnus glandulosa), Canary laurel or barbusano (Apollonias barbujana), follao (Viburnum rigidum), madroño (Arbutus canariensis), laurel (Laurus novocanariensis) and viñatigo (Persea indica); and other species that have grown spontaneously because their seeds or roots were already present in the soil, such as tree heath (Erica arborea) and codeso (Adenocarpus foliolosus).


  • Always stay on the marked trail observing all traffic rules established in the regulations. 
  • When parking, keep away from water intakes or firefighting water storage tanks, and do not block the passage of other vehicles or access to the track.
  • Be extra careful both at junctions with paths and tracks and on sections shared by walkers, horse riders and cyclists. 
  • Proceed with care to avoid accidents that may be caused by obstacles, landslides and uneven terrain. 
  • Check our guide to motor vehicle routes and, if necessary, contact the emergency services by calling 112.
