How to get there: Driving on the CA-184 turn on the CA-870 signposted to Somaniezo close to the kilometer post 3. After 6 km this road ends. (Roadmap)

Distance: 1h27min/6km

Set out by taking a track with a white-yellow waymark that starts from the right hand side of the road (690 m). Ignore a track branching off left (1min) (700 m). When the track lined by oaks bends left (5min) (740 m), you see the mountains of Picos de Europa on your right. Later the valley of Valdeaniezo spreads out revealing the villages of Luriezo and Cahecho.

Follow the waymarks by the main track without paying attention to another track branching off left (28min) (875 m).

As the oaks give way to beech trees the view to the El Cuernón, the highest peak of the Peña Sagra becomes unhampered. After passing a fountain (34min) (890 m) the track stays a long period at the same level. When it forks (41min) (885 m) go left to the pass you can see in front of you. From the Collado Perejita (42min) (885 m) you have a nice view over the valley of Valdelevanes. Continue along the crest to the right, gently up, towards the waymark you can see on a tree trunk.

The track descends gently to the crossroads of the Collado Somasierra (54min) (855 m), where you go right downhill, not through the gate. You cross a gorge (1h12min) (700 m), ignore a track that joins in from left (1h17min) (670 m) and reach the east end of the Aniezo, where you meet another track (1h18min) (625 m), and turn right.

The track leads uphill in the middle of abundant vegetation, crosses a tiny brook (1h20min) (650 m) and forks. Follow the sign for Somaniezo to the left. Once again you have a nice view to the Picos of Europa.

When you reach the CA-870 (1h27min) (685 m) turn right and return to the beginning of the route.
