This route to the highest peak of the nature park is difficult to
follow and also difficult to walk.
At the village entrance you take from the AS-227 a narrow walkway
with asphalt pavement to the right (1470 m). After passing the church
you continue uphill and branch off left. This lane takes you to the
beginning of a track (5min) (1490 m).
track leads through
pastures to a junction (11min) (1490 m), where you turn right
towards the Peña Penouta. When this track
forks (26min) (1495 m), follow a wooden pole to the left. You cross a
brook along stones and go right at the next junction (33min) (1525 m).
When the track ends by signposts in the plain of Cimera (41min) (1560 m), keep left. Do not
follow the sign for "Fuente" to the right. Peña Prieta
borders the plain on the left. The mountain range of
Sierra del Rebezo
rises in the northeast.
You pass a pole standing in a grassy field (45min) (1575
m). Walk close to the other end of the field, where you find several
paths. Do not take the track, which goes straight ahead, nor the wide
path with a white-yellow cross, but choose the narrow path that ascends
to the right towards a wooden pole which you can see up on the slope.
From the pole (49min) (1610 m) you follow a path with white-yellow
waymarks. If you lose the waymarks, you are on a wrong route. First you
walk through between bushes to a
plain (58min) (1640 m), where the path
bends left to the
upper part of the plain.
Looking behind you see the
Later the waymarks guide you
left at a fork in the
pass of Boca Ríos (1h10min) (1695 m). The path descends to a
grassy field (1h18min) (1675 m) and starts then to ascend again. You walk through a
couple of grassy fields before the
pass of Mozarras
(1h56min) (1795 m). Peña Penouta
stays behind you.
From the pass the path slopes down to a small
valley (1765 m) (2h10min), where you have to be very careful not to follow piles of
stones uphill to the right, but to follow the white-yellow waymarks to
the left over a depression. Keep an eye on
wooden poles with
The route ascends through the plain of Mozarras to the foot of
Picu Asta (3h05min) (2010 m). From here starts a steep ascent, first to the foot
of Cornon (3h14min) (2065 m) and then along its
slope. Follow carefully
the waymarks, which prevent you from going to one of the wrong and
dangerous paths. From the top (3h20min) (2190 m) opens up a wide spread
mountain view. Looking
down you see the plain of
Return on the same route back to Santa Maria del Puerto (6h20min).
