Hiking
1792

Location

As Pontes de García Rodríguez - A Coruña

Coordinates:
43º 26' 54.3" N - 7º 50' 37.1" W

Description

This demanding circular route includes steep gradients and has a length of 19 km, making it more suitable for regular hikers with some skill, especially in winter.

The trail can be done in either direction, but if you walk anticlockwise, you will climb the steepest gradient at the start, when you have more energy.

Departing from A Fraga Park, the trail climbs up to Mount Alto da Carballeira (667 m), offering a magnificent scenic view of the town and recently created As Pontes Lake.

On the descent, the trail passes through O Lostegal Forest and an area of dense wooded scrub with oaks, holly trees and laurels that A Fraga Park continues until the reservoir. Here, the silent landscape is most intense beside the flooded ruins of Lugar de Chao do  Habanero. Continue through the lush natural A Ribeira Forest, whose damp corners are filled with greenery year round.

Please note that the safety of the trail may vary depending on the time of year and weather conditions. When the ground is wet, the rocky surfaces are very slippery, requiring extreme caution.
