R4 - Ruta de Pena Maseira

The most demanding and tough route in the Trail Center that runs A Gudiña surroundings through Pena Maseira. Visit the neighboring village of A Mezquita allowing liaison with routes number 5 and 6.

This big circular route features the biodiversity of the municipality of A Gudiña through a natural corridor crossing Pena Maseira, between the Macizo Central of Ourense and the Montesinho Nature Park in Portugal. In its first kilometres, the trail heads in the direction of the river beach of A Ribeira then continues along flat ground among chestnut trees until it reaches the village of Pentes, where you’ll be surprised by the presence of a large, centuries-old chestnut tree. Continuing through the same valley, when you reach Covelas, there is an off-route detour that will take you to Mount Furado, a hole made in the side foothills in order to divert the River Pentes, along with some old tungsten mines and the “Muíño das Canteiras”. In Barxa, heading to the area known as “Os Covatos”, you’ll cross the River San Lourenzo over a stone walkway where you’ll have to get off your bike in order to move forward. In the area surrounding Pena Maseira – in As Salgueiras – you can enjoy the pristine pastures and native forests. After reaching the municipal capital of A Mezquita, the route shares the path with Route 5 “Ruta dos Castros ” to O Pereiro, where the two routes separate once again. After riding your bike along a stretch of the Southeastern Way of St James (the “Silver Route”) to O Canizo, you’ll return to A Gudiña along a track that runs parallel to the national road.
