O Salnés MTB Centre

R9 - Vistas de Arousa

From the Church of Sta. María de Simes the route ascends along the right-hand bank of the River A Chanca and connects with route 5 which comes from A Armenteira.

The wood hides the views that we will enjoy later on, but it is surprising to be separated from buildings in such a highly populated area. Firstly westwards and then northwards, the route progresses to reach the well-hidden Castro de Vara where it comes into contact with the dual carriageway and passes along side it. In the descent, we can have a pleasant rest next to the restored Fofán stream watermill, before climbing uphill to the small but very impressive viewpoint of San Cibrán. From the top, the views really make the climb worthwhile: A Lanzada, O Grove, Cambados, the islands of Arousa and A Toxa...

Later on, in a descent of some three kilometres which combines gentle downhill paths and winding slopes, the route ends along side Route 2, making it easy to reach the start of the A Pedra and Auga footpath.
