How to get there: Drive on the CL-635 to Puerto de Tarna, where you follow the signs for "Pto. Las Señales" and "Puebla de Lillo" to the LE-331. Although at the junction the road number is LE-331, along the road you find kilometer posts with the number LE-333. Drive some 3 km to the Puerto de la Señales between the kilometer posts 11 and 12. (Roadmap)

Distance: 2h30min/8.3km

On the same side of the road you find a parking place and an information panel on the route "Maraña - Puerto de las Señales" Ignore the track that starts from the panel. From the opposite side of the road starts a muddy track (1625 m) that ascends into a pine forest. Take this track. On your left rises the Pico de San Justo.

Later the track starts to descend and bends right. Straight after the curve you come upon a wooden pole with a white-yellow waymark on your right (9min) (1635 m). Follow this pole to a path.

The waymarks lead you cross a brook to a fork (21min) (1720 m), where you go right. Higher up, you enjoy a nice view over a narrow valley to the western mountains of the Sierra de Mongallo. The path descends into a gorge (35min) (1750 m), where you follow the waymark to the right. A couple of minutes later, the waymark guides you left uphill (38min) (1760 m).

From the pass of Les Llastres de Monéu (44min) (1790 m) opens up a gorgeous view to the mountains of the Redes nature park and to the Picos de Europa. Do not follow the waymark to the left towards the village of Tarna, but turn right towards the hillock of Porrones de Monéu. You walk through a heathery landscape without a path. If you keep left you look from the edge down to the valley of Tarna.

From the top of Porrones de Monéu (54min) (1835 m), you enjoy a great view to Canto del Oso.

Continue further up towards the Pico Remelende that rises in front of you, first through a plain with heathers, and then cross the hillock of Mongayo to a clear path. By a concrete pole which serves as a boundary mark (1h05min) (1845 m) you see the rest of the path all the way to the top of Pico Remelende.

From the top of Pico Remelende (1h15min) (1890 m) you enjoy lovely views to Tiatordos and Peña Maciédomelle as well as over the Puerto de Tarna to the Picos de Europa. In the south rise Picos de Mampodre and Pico del Pinar.

You can return on the same way back to the Puerto de las Señales, but if you want a little variety to the route, turn left by the concrete pole which serves as a boundary mark (1h24min) (1845 m) and walk gently downhill through the plain to a gorge where you find a clear path by a brook (1h31min) (1815 m). First the path follows the brook and ascends then to the right hand slope of the gorge. From the ridge (1h49min) (1800 m) you descend back to the pass of Les Llastres de Monéu (1h53min) (1790 m) and return along the familiar route back to the Puerto de las Señales (2h30min).
