Itinerario cerrado debido al incendio forestal del verano de 2023

Description

This route runs through stands of eucalyptus and tree heath that grow on rural properties within the Las Lagunetas Protected Landscape. 

On the route you will see how ferns and brambles invade the edges of the track in search of sunshine. And as you advance, the faya (Morella faya) and acebiño (Ilex canariensis) start to emerge alongside the tree heath (Erica arborea), before you finally enter the humid pine forest. 

Amidst the trees you will also see the flowers of granadillo or Canary Islands St. John’s wort (Hypericum canariense), malfurada (Hypericum grandifolium) and cresta de gallo (Isoplexis canariensis), as well as chaffinches, blue chaffinches, woodpeckers and even sparrowhawks soaring over the forest. 

In addition, in the more open areas you will be treated to beautiful panoramic views of the pine forests and monteverde that cloak the landscape in this area.

Tips

  • 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.
