The route ends at a small quarry that was used for the construction of the dam, although if you climb a little further you will reach a viewpoint with an exceptional panoramic view over the valley and the dam. In addition, the state of the terrain means that a good part of the trail can be enjoyed by bicycle, although it is advisable, as the main interest of this route is the scenery, to do it on foot.

The Cota de Campillo (La Cantera) trail starts next to the cemetery located at the crossroads of Valdehuesa and the road to the Puerto de San Isidro. The start is marked by an information panel at the beginning of the trail. It runs along a deteriorated road, with loose gravel, which resembles a forest track, up to the wall of the Porma Dam.

The dam is located 1.3 km from the start, although its presence will mark the entire journey. Once you have reached this point, one of the main attractions of the trail becomes visible, the views of the upper basin of the Porma and the enormous sheet of water formed by the reservoir.

The trail is just over 8 km long, and its main attraction are the traditional uses of the land for livestock, farming and the use of the forest, with meadows with their natural enclosures, or sebes, and the oak forest (Quercus pryrenaica) standing out in the landscape. We finish the trail in Utrero, a village abandoned after the construction of the water dam.

Head north to begin the first section, which climbs steadily, along a wide track, firstly through oak woods and then gradually towards the Pinar de Villares pine forest, an enclosed pine forest that will be on our right during this section of the trail. The trail consists of a continuous ascent until it reaches a hill, and from there it is the last stretch of a tough climb through a firebreak that ends near the Lacralagua peak, where there is an interpretative table that will help us to understand the configuration of the current landscape, as a result of traditional livestock activity and reforestation in the mid-20th century.

The second half of the trail runs at higher altitudes, for a stretch of about 2 kilometres from east to west, through an area of peaks between shrubs and small pines, where we can enjoy spectacular views of the Cantabrian Mountains and the plains of the Duero, to then begin a steep descent along well-marked trails through an area of oak forest (Quercus pyrenaica) that will lead us back to the town of Voznuevo.

The orientation on the path is very simple because this is a route that does not change. Is is a straightforward trail with little margin for error.

Starting from Soto de Boñar, you will begin the ascent following the calm flow of the river Porma, where you can observe a diverse riverside forest made up mainly of poplars, birches, cherry trees, ash trees and alders.

Once you reach the Puente Viejo crossroads, take the path that emerges on your left and then the crossroads that sends you to the right and leads to the Pico Cueto pine forest. On this comfortable and easy ascent along forest slopes you will gain altitude until you reach the Pradera de la Jana, a place from where you can enjoy an incomparable view of the Picos de Europa overlooking the bluish blanket of the waters of the Porma dam.

Following the trail, which has a steeper gradient, you will reach Pico Cueto, marking the end of the trail at an altitude of 1,613 metres and where a permanent fire watch tower is located. From here you can contemplate the clear difference between the mountain valleys and the riverside valleys, where the steep mountains give way to pastures and crops.

You will now start the descent towards Boñar and when you reach the slopes of Pico Muelas, turn left along a wide and gentle forest path, where you will see a young pine reforestation (or Lillo pine) planted a few years ago as a result of a fire that destroyed the south-facing slopes of this mountain.

As you lose altitude you will enter the mature pine forest again, take the path on your right and follow the Cueto stream along its narrow course, where you can observe a varied hardwood forest, such as oak, birch and rowan. This will take you to the base of Pico Cueto, which will lead you back to the Soto de Boñar.

Leaving Colle along the street on your right, leaving the Hermitage of San Ramón Nonato on your left and taking the village of Felechas on your right as a reference point, you will come out onto the Vozmediano road for a short trail, leaving it abruptly, turning right and continuing along a farm road that will take you directly to the peculiar bus shelter in Felechas.

Arriving at the village of Felechas, you will see a unique construction consisting of 3 Leonese granaries (“Hórreo Leonés”), where you turn left into Calle Real, leaving the church of San Martín de Tour on your right and heading towards the cemetery of this village. From this point, a narrow path leads you back to the Vozmediano road, where you turn right to continue a few metres and find the path that emerges on your left and takes you back to the Colle valley.

Leaving Adrados, cross the village along the main street without turning off at any time until you reach the first crossroads, where you take the path on the right that will lead you along a valley floor. Here, between stone barriers, beeches, oaks and Majuelos, you will gain height until you reach the hill of Santa María, the dividing point of the Traditional Path from Adrados to Vozmediano.

From this point we can contemplate the valley of small farms that have fallen into disuse due to the decline of livestock in the region. In this place you can see some peculiar stone constructions halfway up the hillside in the shape of small huts that nowadays are used by shepherds to shelter from the wind and rain.

Once we have begun the descent along the path you will find the village of Vozmediano, where the Church of San Pedro welcomes you.

Following the trail you will cross the narrow bridge that leads to the centre of the village and turning left you will have to continue towards the exit of the village, to begin the ascent along the narrow path that starts at the first crossroads on the left and on which, escorted from the beginning by oaks and pines, you will reach an important mass of Scots pine, also called Pino de Lillo, which forms part of the protected area of the Pardomino mountains. Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version)

Well into the pine forest and turning left at the junction that marks the steepest stretch of the trail, we reach the highest point of the entire course;

The Collado del Arvejal, also called the Collado de Sillares, where the stream with the same name has its source and from where you have an unparalleled view of the Cantabrian Mountains.

Following the trail, a slight and continuous descent begins in which you will find once again the well-formed Scots pine forest which, alternating in the deepest areas of the valley with oaks, birches and even beeches, will lead you gradually back to the crossroads taken at the beginning of the trail and thus to Adrados.

It is advisable to bring warm clothing, appropriate footwear, water and food as well as sunscreen.

Near the trail is the Pardomino Forest. This area belongs to the Riaño and Mampodre Regional Park and is a protected area, for this reason it is advisable not to leave the itinerary.

We will continue along this forest trail towards the pass, where you will be able to contemplate the splendid view of the eastern mountains of León, with the characteristic background formed by the barren limestone rocks of these mountain massifs, surrounded at the base by green valleys full of deciduous trees and with the Porma Dam as a bluish tapestry, giving us a glimpse of the vastness and contrasts of the unique and protected natural environment of the Picos de Europa. Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version)

Continuing the walk and arriving at the end of this forest track, a few metres further on you will come across what will be the steepest ramp of the whole trail, which runs along a narrow path that will lead you to the Collado de Las Praderonas. From this point you can see the grazing meadows of the narrow valley of Valdehuesa, sheltered by a limestone rock wall that protects them from the cold north winds coming from the Cantabrian Sea.

You will then begin the long descent along the forest trail through pine trees and pastures until you reach the road, which will take you back to Valdehuesa.

Curiosities

The Camino Olvidado (Forgotten Way) to Santiago de Compostela passes through Boñar

The forgotten trail to Santiago (Camino Olvidado a Santiago) also known as Camino de la Montaña or Camino Viejo is an ancestral route to Santiago de Compostela.

Primitive and wild. Unique and striking. Rescuing from oblivion the old Camino a Santiago that crossed rugged mountains, forests and landscapes shaped by water is gaining more and more hiking enthusiasts and pilgrims. The section starts in Bilbao and crosses Burgos, Cantabria and Palencia before entering and concluding in León.

Almost 700 kilometres of a beautiful trail with dozens of Roman ruins, peaks and plains that produce multiple sensations on the pilgrim. The trail is a Jacobean route that during the Middle Ages was used by pilgrims to protect themselves from Almanzor’s Muslims. As the Reconquest advanced over the Muslim kingdoms, this path became less important in favour of the French path until it was completely forgotten. Today, with a unique landscape, the municipalities through which it passes have decided to relaunch it and, therefore, have signposted and prepared it so that those who wish to follow its trails can do so once again. Puente Almuhey, Cistierna, Boñar, La Robla, Canales-La Magdalena, Riello, Fasgar, Igüeña, Labaniego, Congosto, Cabañas Raras and Villafranca, where it joins the French path, form part of the León sections, which also offer Vegacervera and Buiza as alternatives.
