On the other side of the CA-185 (575 m) you can see two tracks. Do
not take the track with a sign for Camaleño and Santo Toribio (return
route), but take the other one, a
grassy track a bit further south, with
a white-yellow waymark on a boulder.
Along the route you find white-yellow and white-red waymarks. When
you reach another track (7min) (630 m), turn left. Looking southwest,
you see a mountain range with the
Coriscau as the
highest top. Keep on this main
track without paying attention to side tracks until the track forks
after a gate (21min) (765 m). Continue left on a
track that stays at the
same level a while.
Lined by oaks and beech trees the track opens up a magnificent view
Picos de Europa. The
ascent becomes gentler and you follow the brook of Avasallo a
couple of minutes before you cross it (38min) (845 m). Just before the
crossing, ignore the track leading right uphill.
You emerge in the beautiful clearing of Prau Lera surrounded by oaks.
The brook flows on your right, but you follow it only a moment, before
you cross the grassy field uphill to the left without any path. Climbing
up the slope you encounter a
track (44min) (900 m) and continue along it
At the top of the hill (54min) (985 m), the track bends right, through a
gate, to another track (57min) (1000 m). Turn left.
grasslands, the track opens up a wonderful view to the eastern
Picos de Europa (1005 m), before it starts to
slope down. The valley of
Camaleño spreads out on your left. The track makes an
U-shaped curve to the left to the cowshed of
Brañes (1h11min) (910 m)
and continues from the front yard steeply
downhill. When it forks
(1h23min) (775 m), follow the waymark up to the left. After going
between some traditional stone buildings you come to a vast
(1h36min) with an extensive view over the
valley and a number of small
villages. Looking behind you see the crest of Monte Subiedes.
You descend through the meadows to the village of Camaleño (2h11min)
(415 m), where you go first straight ahead and then to the left on a
road that skirts the upper edge of the village passing a couple of
fountains before reaching the other end of the village (2h15min) (410 m). You cross the asphalt
square and take the track running along the
left bank of the river Deva. Between apple trees and old stone wall the
track ascends gently bordered by the rock formations of the
After passing a waterfall on your left (2h43min) (555 m) the track
climbs still a little bit higher before it descends to the CA-185 by the
signs for Camaleño and Santo Toribio (2h48min).
