Since the beginning of Autumn, the Font Roja Natural Park is being covered by a peculiar chromatic variety of warm colors. Being one of the best icon of the Valencian forest.
In the Font Roja Natural Park we can see that particular transformation in the autochthonous flora. Which colour scheme of deciduous tree of ashes (Fraxinus excelsior) contrast with the evergreen holm oak and pine.
In order to value all the beauty of that Natural Park, there are several hiking routes which go through it. Walking by that routes we can see autochthonous tree species such as Holm oaks (Quercus Rotundifolia), wild bushes as ´Burilo´(Viburnumrinus), White Hawthorn (Crataegus monoguna), ´lianas´ as Ivy (Hedera helix), Honeysuckle (Lonicera impelía) or the Blond (Rubia peregrina). Also we can find some yews (Taxus baceta) which are characteristic for their slow growth as well as mysterious and magical stories around them.
Over this walk it´s possible to see the characteristic fauna of this setting which is refuge of sublime birds as local eagle (Hieraetus fascitus), peregrine falcon (Falco peregrinos), as well as partridge, eagle owl (Buho bubo), `piquituerto´ or robin.
