Along the path on this ridge of the Can Pinell range, you can see expanses of heather bushes, with some isolated pines and holm oaks, forming extensive heaths. The tree heath (also known as heath, or tree heather) is a species of shrub that is highly resistant to drought and fire and tends to become the master of decarbonated siliceous soils caused by the action of rain.  It flowers abundantly in spring, forming large, beautiful areas covered in the white of its flowers, which give off an intense sweet smell reminiscent of honey. The wood from its root is used to make smoking pipes.
