Walk from the parking place (205 m) to the south. At the fork (2min) (210 m), follow a white-yellow
waymark on the house wall to the left. The
route runs first parallel to the AS-12, a little bit above it, on an
alley between the houses. By a transforming station, a waymark
guides you to the right to a
path (6min) (210 m). At this point, be
careful to take the path, not the track, which leads uphill. Looking
left you see the
reservoir of Doiras.
The path descends gently to a narrow asphalt road (12 min) (190 m). Turn right. Walking through a lovely
forest you enjoy a view of
the Pico del Cuco raising above the slopes covered with forest.
Looking down you see a small plain. At the other end of the
plain, the road bends left to the opposite side of the plain (28min)
(200 m) adorned with the river Urubio and the
stone cottages of Froseira. When the road forks (37mi) (180 m), follow the sign for
"Cova del Demo" to the right.
The track goes by
Froseira to another fork (44min) (160 m). Again
you follow the sign for "Cova del Demo" to the right. After crossing
a brook, you come to the next fork (52min) (155 m). This time you go

river Urubio and meet more signpost at a junction (57min)
(160 m). Keep right following the signs for "Pico del Cuco, 6 km" and
"Cueva del Demo, 8 km". The gently ascending
track is nice and easy
to walk. Stay on the main track without paying attention to side
tracks. On your way, you cross a number of brooks, pass a
and enjoy views of the surrounding valleys.
The track snakes its way to the top of Monte Froseira, a
(2h35min) (750 m), opening up a view of the village of
Villar de San Pedro.
Continue along the track a couple of minutes more to the signpost of
"Cueva del Demo" pointing to the right. Looking left you see the
Pico del Cuco. Ascend from a
cottage along a
track to the
top of Pico del Cuco
(2h42min) (765 m) with splendid views of the
reservoir of Doiras and to
de San Pedro on the
of Sierra de Bobia.
Return to the signpost of Cueva del Demo (2h49min) (740 m). From
now on the route becomes difficult. If you want to avoid walking
along a stony path running partly in a brook climbing on a steep
slope, we recommend that you return on the same way back to Doiras.
If you want to continue, follow the sign to a
descends to a track (2h55min) (710 m). Turn right and walk some 40 m
to branch off left to a path running next to a brook. Looking ahead
you can see the reservoir of Doiras. Later the
path becomes easier.
When the wide path bends right, be careful that you follow the
waymark straight ahead to a narrow pat lined by a
(3h11min) (600 m). When you come to a track (3h16min) (565 m), turn
left uphill. Soon you have to branch off right to a downhill path
(3h18min) (565 m). The
path goes round the gorge to its
side (3h25min) (520 m) and starts to descend along a very
slope. Watch carefully the waymarks. When you meet signposts
(3h48min) (395 m), follow the sign for "Cueva del Demo" to the
some 10 m from the sign. On the cave walls you see
the stone age.
Return to the signposts and follow the Doiras sign to a path,
which remains difficult. After some 5 minutes it becomes
Once back on the track (4h25min) (160 m), turn right and follow
the sign for "Froseira" to the right somewhat later (4h33min) (155 m)
. When you reach the stone buildings (4h37min) (140 m) turn right
over the bridge and follow the waymarks and Doiras-sign through a
gate to a track.
When the track forks (4h40min) (155 m), keep left. Soon you follow
the waymark to the path on your right (4h43min) (160 m). The path
crosses a ridge (4h52min) (165 m) with a nice view. Later you cross
ridge (5h07min) (135 m). Looking left you see the
of Doiras. The
path runs first above the reservoir before it descends
to the water front and bends left to the AS-12 (5h19min) (140 m).
Cross the bridge and return to
