This linear route runs through the highest areas of the “Artesa-Altabacales” circuit through dense stands of pine trees. During the journey we can see the basins of the Velerín, Castor and Padrón rivers.
This route can be done in ascent or descent, and can be traveled on foot, by bicycle or on horseback.
On foot or by bicycle and on the rise, the degree of difficulty is high because it is an ascent by forest track of almost 20 kilometers in length in which the 860 meters of accumulated positive height gain will be surpassed. It is a journey that requires some physical resistance.
On descent and by bicycle, the degree of difficulty is medium, although the differences are not very marked, the terrain is very irregular. On foot or on horseback the descent has an equally irregular section that requires extreme caution.
