This route passes through areas ravaged by the great fire of 2007, subsequently managed with the aim of restoring the pine forest and its undergrowth.
The work carried out by the forestry teams included felling Canary Island pines to improve the health of the forest and pruning the tree heath (Erica arborea) and faya (Morella faya) affected by the fire. Today you can already appreciate the considerable size attained by the fayas thanks to these interventions.
In this area you can also see water infrastructures created to retain the soil and to protect the surrounding recreational and camping areas.
Next to the stand of pine trees you will find jara (Cistus symphytifolius), a species of rockrose with striking pink flowers, and corazoncillo (Lotus campylocladus), widespread after the fire, carpeting the ground with yellow flowers in the more open areas.
In the forest you will see blue chaffinches fluttering amongst the trees, woodpeckers pecking at the oldest trunks and even the odd sparrowhawk flying over the tops of the pines.
