Getting There

Esta ruta tiene mucha historia ya que es realidad obra de la ingeniería. Cerca de Tresviso existían unas minas de cinc y es por eso que se construyó este sendero para llevar este mineral cargado en animales para posteriormente transportarlo en barcas hasta el mar. Su difícil acceso hace de este paraje natural uno de los más bonitos y espectaculares de los Picos de Europa. La ruta es moderada, pero el sendero es muy pedregoso, así que asegúrate de llevar calzado adecuado. En invierno suele haber nieve y en verano hace calor, por lo que prepárate y lleva mucho agua.

Desde Potes (Cantabria) continúa hacia el Desfiladero de la Hermida (N-621). Pasando la Hermida, veremos la Central Eléctrica del Urdón donde empieza la ruta. Ahí mismo hay un parking muy pequeño y es donde comienza la ruta. Es recomendable madrugar para poder aparcar el coche sin problema.

First to Review

Did this trail a couple of times starting at the Tresviso end. There is a long section over loose stones “scree” which is not easy to negotiate, a walking stick or two would help a lot. The views are spectacular; but can be limited by low cloud. No facilities along the way, nor at the bottom; need to walk a further two km to Hermida for cafes and so on.
