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: 1h50min/6.8km

In the Puerto de la Señales you find an information panel on the route "Maraña - Puerto de las Señales" (1625 m).  From the panel starts an ascending track, which passes the Lagunas de Valdecarrín and comes to a fork (6min) (1640 m). Continue along the track left downhill.

From the track you have nice views over the valley of Cabañas and to the Pico Remelende on the other side of the Puerto de las Señales. When the track ends take the path down left (12min) (1595 m). The path ends in a grassy field (16min) (1545 m), where you take a grassy trail down left. After going round a hillock (22min) (1530 m), you continue along a clear path uphill, and keep right at the following fork.

You come to a grassy plain (31min) (1550 m), where you cross a couple of brooks and take a grassy track to the left (34min) (1560 m). In some places the track narrows into a wide path. On your way you enjoy views to the Puerto de Tarna, the Caserío de Riosol and the plain of Pino.

Later you see a track in front of you. Once you reach this track (46min) (1575 m), turn left downhill. Some hundred meters to the right from this junction are the abandoned mines of Riosol on the slope of Pico del Pinar.

The winding track leads through pastures towards the hermitage of Nuestra Señora Virgen de Riosol. On your right spreads out the plain of Pino.

By the Ermita Nuestra Señora Virgen de Riosol you encounter a beautiful fountain (1h13min) (1390 m). Returning on the same track, ignore the path with a sign for Puerto de la Señalesiin (1h16min) (1400 m). Later a white-yellow waymark guides you to the right, to another track (1h21min) (1425 m). Follow the waymarks to a grassy field (1h36min) (1515 m), where the route bends left uphill to a track.

Little by little the ascent becomes steeper opening up views over the Valley of Cabañas to the plain of Pino before it ends in the Puerto de las Señales (1h50min).
