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
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).
