This deeper hike into Valle Nuevo National Park continues onward from the end of Sendero de Los Helechos. The trail passes over a small canyon, and takes you through a savannah of “pajón”–a spiky bush sitting near the foot of pine trees, typically found in these parts. Just like the prior stretch of the trail, you will spot numerous bird species on your walk, from the Hispaniolan Parrot to the Hispaniolan Emerald hummingbird, among many others.
