How to get there: Driving on the AS-262 to Covadonga, leave your car to a parking place by the kilometer post 6, about 600 meters from the roundabout of Covadonga towards Cangas de Onis. (Roadmap)

Distance: 2h35min/6km

By the kilometerpost 6, opposite to the Casa Asprón, starts a path without a signpost (200 m). About 100 meters from this path towards Cangas de Onis, opposite to a parking place, was in autumn 2008 a path with a signpost for "Cruz de Priena". This is the wrong path. Be sure that you select the right path.

The steeply ascending path goes first through a forest and starts then to zigzag on a grassy slope. When the path forks (27min) (350 m), go left. The views over the sanctuary of Covadonga are fine all the way.

At the next fork (43min) (460 m), take the path to the right. Walking in a forest of maples and oaks, you encounter another fork (56min) (550 m), and go left. When the forest ends, you enjoy views over Covadonga to plains, valleys and the mountains of Picos de Europa. By the cross (1h20min) (725 m) opens up a mountain panorama.

Return on the same way back to the parking place (2h35min).
