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.
