We visit the Natural Park of Las Ubiñas – La Mesa. We leave the car in the Recreational Area of Xanas and we get to know the magnificent Gorge of the Xanas declared Natural Monument and deserves it.
For them we will follow the PR-AS-187 Ruta de las Xanas and Senda de Valdolayés.
We start up the path to the Xanas Gorge that has been carved over the years by the Xanas River. It is a well known and traveled route in Asturias for its beauty. He is also qualified as the little brother of the Garres del Cares, but is much less crowded.
The path was carved in the rock in an old project to connect the villages of Pedroveya, Rebollada and Dosango with the Trubia valley.
It is possible to emphasize in addition to the beautiful thing in the formation of the gorge and the construction of the passage, the great forest mass that conserves in its interior.
Little by little, and without any difficulty step, we reach the town of Pedroveya. Where we start the return, almost all down, on the Path of Valdolayés. Except the climb to Dosango.
It takes the rain seriously, but it does not prevent us from returning easily when looking for the car, because the low clouds prevent us from enjoying the landscape.
And if the route is a classic. So is closing it with a good stew at Casa Generosa Restaurant in the town of Pedroveya. You can take it halfway or finish it up with the car. What we did
