The Bear Path

It is a beautiful route in the Trubia River Valley that takes place between forests, rivers, bridges and gorges. It is probably the best known family route of Asturias in the heart of one of the few places where the brown bear continues to survive in freedom. This path is built on an old railroad that was used to transport coal from Teverga and Quirós to Trubia, which ensures that if a train passed, there will be no large slopes or pronounced pending. The route starts in Tuñón and passes parallel to the Trubia River. At 5 kilometers we will find the Osero enclosure where we can see the two famous Paca and Molina (or mill) bears. If we continue along the path 4 km more, we will arrive in Caranga from below, where the path bifurca and we will have to choose which way to follow:

Rumbo to the Valdemurio reservoir

If we take the left direction, we will find a path with something more pending that will take us to the Valdemurio reservoir. It is a cool cool site with a recreational area and a bar with a view to the reservoir. This recreational area can be a good point to eat and then return along the same path to the initial point of the route.

Rumbo to enter

If we take the right path we will cross some impressive gorges to I enter, where there is an ideal recreational area to eat if we carry snacks. In the event that we have not cast food in the backpack, we will find several restaurant where you can eat a menu of the day to replace strength before embarking the way back.

To consider

The route, if it starts from Tuñón, always pee up. It is not much slope, but it is always on the rise. This is appreciated around, allowing us to return faster. If you are a problem put the bicycle in the car trunk to move to the starting point of the route, the path is full of companies with bikes, cars and armchairs to rent.

The Alba Route

The Natural Network Park is one of the 5 natural parks of Asturias. It may also be the least known of all, but it is certainly one of the most beautiful and has the addition of not that it is not massified. The Alba Route starts in the town of Soto de Agues, in the Council of Surrender. It is a route of about 14 linear kilometers: 7 River upstairs and 7 river below, which pass to the Vera del Río Alba, a tributary of the Nalón River, the longest in the Principality of Asturias. The tour takes place along a concrete track except for the last kilometer, which becomes a path. On this route we will enter a forest with gorges, a multitude of waterfalls and a lot of fauna. It is very common to see mountain goats for the rocky slopes of the other margin of the river.

Where to eat
