|Walk from the sign (1225 m) to the village. In
less than a minute you see signs on your left - "Puente de los Mallos",
"Foratarruego" and "Puerto de Revilla". All of them
point ahead. The road narrows into a lane, and by the church the lane
turns into a path. When the path forks (4min) (1245 m), go right.
The village and the valley of Escuaín stay below. At the next fork
you encounter signs
(10min) (1280 m). Keep left and ignore the sign for "Consusa
Superior", which points to the right. The wide path runs on the
bedrock and opens a great view to the mountain of Castillo
You cross the bridge over the groge of Consusa (23min) (1350
m). Ignore a path that joins in from left by the "Revilla"
sign that points behind you (28min) (1375 m). When the "Parque
Nacional" sign tells that you are entering the national park (33min)
m), continue straight ahead ignoring the path that branches off right.
You go over the gorge of Angonés on a
bridge (40min) (1390 m). Along
the gorge rushes an waterfall. After the bridge, the path bends left and
you encounter signposts. Follow the signs for "Puente de los
Mallos", "La Valle", "Gurrundué Medio" and "Escuaín"
to the left.
You walk in a shady forest and have only a few views to the
Escuaín between the tree trunks. After crossing the gorge of Garganta (1h22min)
you meet more signposts. Follow the signs for "Puente de los Mallos", "La Valle"
and Esquaín" to the left. In five minutes you start a steep descent.
When the steep part is over (1h40min) (1425 m) you continue along
the path to a fork (1h45min) (1425 m) , where you go right.
Again you cross a gorge (1h53min) (1445 m) and come to the bridge of
(2h10min) (1450 m). Immediately after the bridge you follow the sign for Escuaín. The path ascends to the plains of
Valles Altas de Escuaín (2h18min) (1495 m) , where you enjoy a
magnificent mountain view over the
Escuaín. In the north the
valley is bordered by Circo
de Gurrundué. In the west, you discern the valley you are heading
After crossing a brook (2h21min) (1490 m) bend left. Almost
immediately you see the sign for Escuaín. Follow the signs and
white-green waymarks to the plain, where you encounter more signposts.
By a cattle corral starts a
track (2h26min) (1510 m) .
Walking along the track you can admire the sheer
rock walls of the
canyon and the montain ranges in the east. You pass a fountain (2h33min)
and cross a gorge (2h41min) (1450 m). The mountain of Cotiella shows
first on your left from the gaps in the leafy forest and later, after
crossing another gorge (3h05min) (1340 m) in front of you. You go round
a bar closing the track from traffic (3h28min) (1215 m) and come to the
village of Escuaín (3h33min) (1200 m). Take the asphalt road to the
right for "Revilla".
Soon after passing a waterfall (3h43min) (1160 m) you encounter a path with signposts that starts from
the left hand side of the road
(3h46min) (1160 m). The path snakes its way through a mossy and leafy
forest and comes to a fork (4h01min) (1000 m). Follow the signs for "Revilla"
and "Río Yaga" to the left. Further down you see the
waterfall of Yaga and the large pools its waters form on your left
(4h05min) (970 m). At the next fork (4h07min)
(965 m), go right for Revilla. The left branch goes to the shore of
Yaga, close to the waterfall you saw earlier.
You reach the Yaga river and a large
pool (4h09min) (950 m) and cross
the river a little bit further on boulders. On the other side the signs
guide you to a path. The path leads to a rocky terrace with a pool
surrounded by semicircular rock walls (4h19min) (955 m). After crossing
the terrace the path keeps ascending still for a while in the leafy
forest, but higher up a pine forest takes over (4h40min).
Once you reach the crest, follow the right side of the gorge to east
until you cross it
(4h55min) (1085 m). From this point you have excellent views to Punta
Llerga and Peña Montañesa.
Immediately after crossing the gorge, the path forks. Go right. When
you come to the asphalt road (4h59min) (1110 m), turn left. The
road ascends back to Revilla (5h25min) (1245 m).
