Description of the stage and stretches

The wide valley in which the Recreation Area La Peral is located allows us to gaze at the beautiful region which we will travel through for a while. This stage leaves from the Recreation Area and the GR-208 “Cycle Loop of the Central Mountain” goes up through the road AS-230 which we will set a course for Alto de La Cobertoria.

We leave aside the access that comes from La Golpeya and continues upwards until the Gamoniteiru turnoff, which we will reach after a 2,8-kilometres walk and we will also leave aside in order to go towards Alto de La Cobertoria (1.184 metres). Here we will find the first view over Quirós region.

In the crossroads of the Alto de La Cobertoria, we will take the left turnoff through the paved split QU-5 towards Las Chanas. At this point, we will go downwards during around 3,7 kilometres until we arrive to a turnoff to the left which is signposted as “GR-109 Asturias Interior” and the GR-208 itself.

Then, we leave the road in order to take the track which goes up until Las Colinas and Las Chafarizas on our way to Prau Porciles. This ascent is done through hard steep slopes and viable stretches, with wide routes which allow us to go up to La Cordal de Porciles. So we will cycle during a few minutes enjoying the views over Quirós and Lena valleys.

Once we have gone through the hill range, we will go down through a wide long way track which ends in the village Val.le, where we take the road LE-7. From this point onwards, we will continue with no risk of getting lost sharing the route with the GR-109  and the PR-87 towards Zurea.

In Zurea we will take a turnoff to the left in order to continue through the road towards Sotiel.lo, which is the end of the stage.
