The Walk

By the encoro de Cachamuíña
Backwater of the Lonia River

We start the route at the foot of the encoro de Cachamuíña, where we find a car park. We take the dirt road to our right along the south bank, among pine trees and the sound of birds. We will soon find a bio-healthy park and a footbridge that avoids the Trives road, arriving at a corner of the reservoir that we will cross over a small bridge. The path climbs a little, with some steps, which is the only obstacle for cyclists. It goes along the north side through all the nooks and crannies formed by the reservoir until it reaches the dam, which we will cross, enjoying the view of the Lonia River that goes in search of the Miño River between riverside forests dominated by alders. The encoro de Cachamuíña offers a circular walk, very easy to do with the family, especially on hot days in the Ourense basin. Depending on the time of year, we can see a large number of birds, such as mallards, cormorants and other species that live in the aquatic and forest habitats. We must be careful on the last stretch and at the dam, as it shares the space with vehicular traffic.
