Start from the parking place (295 m) along the road left from the
health center towards the bridge. After crossing the river Deva turn
right. By the information panel on Monte Arabedes (3min) (300 m) a
white-yellow waymark guides you uphill to a narrow asphalt
leads above the village.
Keep on this asphalt road without paying attention to a road with a
white-yellow waymark that forks off right (8min) (315 m). Looking
northeast you see the Peña
la Ventosa behind the valley of
Cillórigo. In the
southeast spreads the valley of
Bullón with the Peña
Sagra on its background.
You come to the tiny village of Rases (31min) (510 m) and continue
along the Calle Rases uphill. Soon the asphalt turns into concrete. Keep
on this concrete road ignoring a track that forks off left.
Lined by green
meadows, oaks and chestnuts the road opens up a fine view to the
mountains. Do not pay attention to a track that forks off when the
road bends left (48min) (685 m).
Just before the concrete road ends (53min) (730 m), branch off right
on a track. The
peaks of Picos de Europa rise in front of you, and down in the
valley you see
the villages of Lles
and Viñón. The track ascends gently to the top of Monte Arabedes, where
you branch off left on another
(58min) (750 m). On your right spreads out the valley of Camaleño with
the village of Turieno.
Further down the track goes along a ridge.
At its tip (1h15min) (615 m)the track bends sharp left and starts descending steeply
towards Potes. Ignore a sign
for Encindar de Arabedes pointing to the left (1h26min) (465 m) and
continue along the track to Potes. Waking along the Calle Sanchez Mateo
you cross the bridge on your right (1h46min) (295 m) and return to the
parking place (1h47min) (315 m).
