  • A 20 km route approx. for a day, is not hard but from Asturias begins with a descent of about 45minutes of ascension. People with vertigo and people who abstain not as spectacular scenery and at certain times is saturated hikers

  • Whoever does this course will agree that the landscape and the heights are immense. The difficulty is rather high, because there are 12 km to 12 km to go back. Who are not prepared will feel in my legs. Unless you want to go back to taxi (€125 divided by 4 people). The route we did was Poncebos-Poncebos Cain. I advise the use of boots this because the path is composed of sharp stones and gravel.

  • The 24 km of back and forth worth. Stunning views, nature, roads within and between the rock. It made us the typical day of Asturias, drizzle and clouds but it was the perfect touch. You feel great when you finish.

  • Wonderful place. A 12 Km route from Poncebos (Asturias) to Cain (Leon). It is not a hard path, but it is not a walk, especially if you do the approximately 24 Km of back and forth, it's a little difficult to return from the goal to the starting point by other means that non-return to walk the same route. Beautiful landscapes, stony and rocky on the Asturian side, and more lush and green on the Leonese side.

  • Fantastic road with stunning views. Leaving from Poncebos, the initial 2 km are uphill and can be hard for those who are not accustomed to walking, but past that the rest of the way is quite plain. You can go with dogs (always attached), although if you plan to go with pet or children must be taken into account that in most parts of the route the outer side of the road is dangerous by the height. It is a frankly recommended, although dates route as bridges and similar volume of people is really high.

  • Route with views of infarction and almost flat except at its beginning. Too bad that was so crowded (August). The road is excavated in the rock, being different from the typical routes. Suitable for the whole family. I recommend to go down to the River to eat and freshen up.

  • If you like walking is highly recommended route that Yes, wear appropriate shoes since there are many stones and you finish keepaway traps feet. It is a route to go and return, if you're normal pace it takes something less than 6 hours to do all the way

  • Stunning location and unbeatable views whenever you don't have vertigo. The route of Cares also called throat divine, is an impressive Gorge that runs through a spectacular path carved out of limestone and surrounded by mountain of nearly 2,000 meters, always at the foot of the River Cares. It is a 12 km route round (24 km round-trip), very easy to do for anyone because almost all of it is going flat. In 1916 began to encircle a winding and precarious path so the Viesgo electric company workers could monitor and maintain a water channel, channel carrying part of the flow of the Cares for its hydroelectric development in the Central of Camarmeña, already later in the 40-50's built the current path to provide better access to the maintenance of the channel.
