Follow the white-yellow waymark (960 m) to an ascending
concrete road that
starts from the right side of the CA-894. In a couple of minutes the
road turns into a track. When you see a
sign for "Los molinos de Dobres"
on your left (7min) (1010 m), visit the two
mills of Dobres by the Frio
river. You can go in to both renovated
After returning to the track (12min) you continue uphill to a fork
(15min) (1030 m), where you go
right. The river Frio flows on your left
through the green slopes surrounded by
fine rock walls
and the Pico Pecines.
You go through a gate (25min) (1135 m), and come to a fork (27min)
(1135 m), where you follow the waymark to the left. Sloping down gently
the track leads to the Invernales de Ranes, a small group of
(30min) (1110 m), and continues to the bridge of the
river Frio (40min)
(1120 m). After crossing the bridge you ascend to a fork (43min) (1150 m), where the waymark guides you to the left.
You emerge from the beech forest to beautiful
meadows and enjoy
fantastic views over the valley. After crossing two brooks you come to
junction (1h06min) (1275 m), and turn left towards the mountains of Picos de Europa.
Walking downhill along the
track, keep an eye on its right hand side,
not to miss a grassy track that branches off in the
pass of Sierra Lamoa
(1h11min) (1250 m). Soon this
track bends right by beautiful rock
formations. After a sharp bend to the right, you find a narrow path that
descends steeply to the left (1h15min) (1215 m).
The difficult part lasts some six minutes. When the path reaches the
river Reguejada, it becomes
wider and more gentle
(1h25min) (1160 m).
Soon after you have climbed over a fence, the path leads to the other
side of the river
(1h29min) (1140 m). Now you follow a wide grassy trail
above the Cucayo. The
views over the
villages to the surrounding slopes
are wonderful. The Reguejada rushes down the slope on your left. On your
right the route is lined by impressive rock walls.
When you come to a track (1h56min) (1010 m), turn left. You descend
to a concrete road (2h01min) (950 m), and turn left again. After
crossing the river, keep left at all forks and continue through the
village to the beginning of the route (2h10min).
