In the park can be found many black pine (Pinus nigra) trees,Bosnian pines (Pinus heldreichii), Bulgarian fir, (Abies borisii-sign) and ash trees (Fraxinus).

Air currents around the area have caused trees to bend in many interesting shapes, like the Pisha e Flamurit. Along the road are several restaurants, hotels, and a small wooden cabin complex. The area of the park and the surrounding mountains are used mainly for hiking and tracking tours. A paragliding site serving annually as an international competition venue is located south of Llogara. Along the twisting road are several local vendors of honey and mountain tea.
