The beginning of the trail leading to Mt. Tejalone can be easily found if you go along the asphalt road connecting the lower part of Caprera pinewoods with the fortification of Arbuticci, in the north of the island. Park your car or your bike in the small picnic area and, following the arrow, take the steep uphill trail running along a thick woodland of Quercus ilex, shady and today rare remain of the original formations present in the past in Caprera. During the autumn and the winter, the ilex tree formation becomes the ideal habitat for various Boletus species, among which the most characteristic is the Bouchet (Boletus lepidus), and other mushrooms with showy colors, not all edible, but without a doubt with a strong scenographic appeal, whose observation can be the occasion to carry out interesting walks.
