Incredible trail with views in every direction. Difficult only for length, but mostly easy and flat except for the first forty minutes from Poncebos. We are relatively fit and whole trail took us 6 hours, including plenty of time to take pictures and a stop for lunch in Caín. There were a number of 60+ yo doing the trail as well without problem. The views are so spectacular the whole time that you don’t notice the time going by. It definitely did not feel like 24 km. For best light for pictures start by 10 am on the Poncebos side and hike back in the afternoon from Caín. To park in Poncebos, drive up to trailhead, then turn around and take first available parking. Very popular route, so best to do on a weekday in off-season. Avoid July and August.

Very exciting trail!!! About 24 km back and forth mostly flat, but the views amazing. .

A reasonable amount of uphill at the start from the La Nora end; there’s a cafe about 3km, after that it’s nice sea views until reaching the outskirts of Gijón. Walked to the remains of the Roman Wall in Gijón, both the built and natural environment are very pleasing. I looked around the town before heading back. A full eight hours; look forward to doing it again.

Beautiful trail with different kind of views and levels of paths. From Poncebos, the first 45 minutes are a good climb and after the highest point of Caolos the route goes down slightly. The route is located very high above the river and offers you a very good view of the valley and the mountains, which are astonishing when the sun is shining. It's recommended to stay the night in Cain and walk back the next morning! Walked from the other side the route is a different experience, so it's no problem to go back and forth. On the road you get company from a lot of goats, we counted 133!

A beautiful coastal walk from Playa la Nora to Gijon. The path is well maintained and mostly paved. There are limited facilities except where the trail passes close to communities and upon arrival closer to Gijon,

A well maintained and well marked trail along the Rio del Valle to the beautiful Lago del Valle. There are a few steep sections. The lake at the end is worth the effort. There are no facilities or potable water along the route.

This is a great trail. I visited my friend from San Sebastian and his friends and family had all done this trail. It is a local favorite. They recommended that we stay in Potes and then drive to Cain to begin the trail. We hiked from Cain to Poncebos. In Poncebos we got a tasty lunch and drank some beers, then we chilled by the river before hiking back. We came across a lot of mountain goats. The gorge is incredible with dramatic views of the limestone rock shooting up into the sky. I highly recommend this trail it was incredible and I'd love to go back and do the trails in the surrounding area. My friend said this trail can get super crowded during the high season, but it wasn't too crowded in April. We saw about a dozen people over the 14 miles.

A fantastic hike, strenuous in sections descending from Pedroveya to the valley community of Las Xanas; consequently the return trip is mostly uphill. The trail is well maintained. There is parking at both ends of the trail. The trail was in parts hand-hewn during the time of the Spanish Civil War. There are no facilities or potable water on the trail. There is a Sideria (bar/restaurant) at the Pedroveya end.

Lovely scenic hike

Amazing views of a deep limestone gorge from start to finish. The only challenge at all is the length. There is a taxi or bus service available at either end if you decide not to do the exact same walk back. But it is worth it to go both ways, the steep walls and all the twists and turns provide new views going the opposite way.

This is an amazing hike with awesome views, highly recommend doing this if you are in Austurias We just did this (end of May) and it was a cloudy day with light drizzle, all very manageable with a down jacket or raincoat. Amazing views everywhere and for parts of the hike the clouds would engulf the area we were hiking. Trail is very clear and apparent, you cannot get lost Also saw lots of mountain goats, they are not aggressive at all and will usually walk/run away when you get close to them My wife and I are in OK shape and each way was around 3.5hrs (incl photos), so 7hrs in total. No toilets or drinking water along the trail that we saw, but there are restaurants and cafes at each town at the start and end of the trail where you can use the bathroom or buy water, food, etc Ps. If you start at Pescabos, the trail is actually on your right hand side going up the side of the mountain quite steeply for the first 45mins (fairly flattish after that). Don’t go on the flat road in the middle, don’t think that leads anywhere
