This walk takes you through the different types of ecosystem located in the highlands and the northern slopes of the Park: brezales de cumbre(mountain heather) covered in carpets of moss, laurisilva that is typical of the mountainsides, laurisilva with viñatigos that are typical of the bottoms of ravines, which sometimes achieve a notable height and permanent water flows. Once you leave the Park, the walk goes to caserío del Cedro which is surrounded completely by woodlands located in the lower part of a ravine down which water flows throughout the year. A great vertical cliff, with a waterfall of over 200 m, separates this area from the Hermigua Valley.
