How to get there: Turn from the CL-635 towards "Maraña" close to the kilometerpost 11. Drive along this narrow asphalt road some 4.3 km to the village of Maraña, pass the church to a parking place on your left by the information panel on the "Parque Regional Picos de Europa". (Roadmap)

Distance: 3h45min/15.6km

From the parking place (1245 m) you continue along the road to the beginning of a sand road, where you find an information panel on the route "PR-LE-19 Puerto de las Señales" (10min) (1255 m). The first part of this route has white-red waymarks.

On your way to Riosol you walk through the vast grazing grounds of Fuente Maraña and Salgorio and enjoy a nice view to tops of the Mampodre mountain range. After crossing the pass of Cagüezo you look over the plain of Pino to the mountain range of Llobiles and pass a tall cross.

Once you reach the hermitage of Nuestra Señora Virgen de Riosol with a beautiful fountain (1h20min)(1390 m) you follow the sign for "Puerto de las Señales, 2,5 km" to the left. Walking along the track to a bridge ignore a path with a white-yellow waymark and a sign for Puerto de la Señales, and keep on the track (1h23min) (1400 m). Later a white-yellow waymark guides you to the right to another track (1h30min) (1425 m). Follow the waymarks to a meadow (1h45min) (1515 m), where the route bends left uphill to a track.

Little by little the ascent becomes steeper. You enjoy fine views over the valley of Las Cabañas to Pico Remelende before you reach the Puerto de las Señales (2h) (1625 m). On the other side of the pass rises Pico del Águila.

Return on the same way back to Maraña (3h45min).
