Walk from the fork (1090 m) along a paved walkway towards "Lago
Ercina", until you encounter a walking route sign for "Lago Ercina
PR-PNPE-2" on your right (4min) (1095 m). From this sign, you take the
paved walkway and steps upwards to the lookout spot of Entrelagos
(10min) (1165 m). On your left, you see the Enol lake, and on your
right, the Ercina lake. On their background rise the peaks of Picos de
The walkway descends to a parking place by the Ercina lake (15min)
(1125 m). At the end of the walkway, you find a sign for "Ruta de los
Lagos" pointing to the right. Make for the right side of the
through a grassy field. Once you reach the lake, you encounter a path.
At a junction (21min) (1120 m), go left. A couple of minutes later,
close to the end of the lake, a white-yellow waymark guides you uphill
to the right (23min) (1115 m).
After passing the fountain and cottage of Rebalgas (29min) (1140 m),
the path bends right. Views over the plain on your left and to the tops
of Picos de Europa are magnificent. Looking ahead you see a number of
mountain ranges. From the crest (36min) (1145 m), you
descend to the
herdsman's hut of Bricial (38min) (1130 m). Continue to the opposite
slope, for a white-yellow waymark that you can spot on your left.
Later you follow the waymarks through a small
field (44min) (1130 m).
When you encounter a sign, with its back towards you, follow it to
the left, towards "Vega de Enol" (47min) (1115 m). The stony
crosses a field surrounded by beech trees (57min) (1125 m), and goes on
to the Vega de Enol, along which runs a sand road (1h12min) (1080 m).
Walking along the vast grassy
plain, the Enol
lake soon comes into
sight. Follow the road on the left side of the lake, until you meet a
sign for "Aparcamiento de Buferrera" (1h27min) (1085 m). Take the path
that starts by the sign to the right. You pass a group of cottages,
leaving them to your left (1h30min) (1080 m), and come to the CO-4
(1h37min) (1080 m). Walk along the road to the beginning of the route
