The Walk

From the old paper mill to the Peilán Waterfalls
Ecological trail along the Arenteiro River

It is a small trail, but surprisingly beautiful and ideal for the whole family. We take the N-525 until we reach the diversion to Lousado, in the municipality of Piñor, following the signposts towards the ecological trail. We leave the vehicle next to the old paper mill, where we will find an explanatory panel. Next to the canal we will soon find the waterfalls of the Arenteiro River and a wooden platform that serves as a viewpoint of this beautiful spot.

The path continues upstream to its confluence with the Asneiros River and a group of several mills. One of them, the one with a double millstone, was restored when this hiking route was prepared, which is part of a longer one (about 15 km) included in the andaina or popular walk. We return along the same path, enjoying its riverside forest, the sounds of the Arenteiro River, and, if we do it in autumn, we will walk through a carpet of multicoloured leaves.
