How to get there: Driving on the CA-184, turn by the kilometer post 6 on the CA-871 signposted to Lamedo. After 8 km, the CA-871 ends in Lamedo. (Roadmap)

Distance: 2h05min/7.5km

Set out from the bus stop (835 m) to the right, along a narrow asphalt road, that soon turns into a concrete lane. Continue uphill until you reach a fork (2min) (845 m), where a white-yellow waymark guides you to the right. Almost immediately, you fork off right again and cross a river. When the concrete ends (5min) (870 m) you start walking along an uphill track. When it forks (7min) (890 m), go up right.

You follow the track snaking its way uphill in a beech forest until you encounter a white-yellow waymark on a tree trunk on your left at the beginning of a path (40min) (1110 m). Keep right at the forks and make for the gurgle of a brook. In some places the path is very narrow, almost invisibe in the middle of abundant vegetation. After crossing the brook (44min) (1075 m), you find a clear path that leads to a fork (49min) (1090 m), where you go left over another brook.

When you reach a meadow (51min) (1095 m), continue straight ahead towards a cottage, which you see higher up on the slope. On the edge of the forest you encounter a track (54min) (1100 m). Follow it uphill to the left. You come to the cottage that you saw earlier from the meadow (1h04min) (1175 m) and continue along the track to the left.

The track leads to a wider track (1h21min) (1230 m). Looking southeast, you see the slopes of the Cuesta Cabreña. The route goes left, but you can visit the Portillo de Brañes, a pass used by herdsmen, on your right. The climb to the pass takes some 10 minutes.

The track to the left descends to Lamedo. Walk through the village back to the bus stop (2h05min).
