This path has kermes oak thickets on both sides. Kermes oak thickets are the formation which is most abundant and which would be predominant in most of the mountains in natural conditions.

It comprises dense thickets of approximately 1 metre in height, in which rosemary and grey-leaved cistus are abundant. Common smilax and asparagus are also present, with scattered examples of wild olive and Aleppo pine.

The strong sunshine makes this setting an ideal habitat for some reptiles such as the ocellated lizard and the ladder snake. 

Various birds find the garrigue to be an ideal location to look for food, including Bonelli’s eagle, the kestrel and the sparrowhawk.
