This route takes you through different pine stands that were replanted in the second half of the 20th century and are currently in the process of being replaced.
To restore the monteverde undergrowth typical of this area, forestry teams are cutting down some of the Monterey pines in these forests. In addition, many older and weaker specimens have been blown down in recent years by storms, another reason why they need to be replaced.
This means that along the track you will see the monteverde ecosystem in different stages of evolution and composition, from areas with an understorey of laurel (Laurus novocanariensis) and follao (Viburnum rigidum) to much more mature areas, such as Montaña del Pozo.
You will also notice the frequent traces of the work carried out by the forestry teams on the vegetation to improve its condition and stimulate its development.
