This route, which is almost circular, starts from near the school of Rubiá and goes up towards Mount
Chancelos in order to reach the Alto de Cales and then come back down again to Rubiá.
Along an old cart road, we go upwards while enjoying spectacular views of the landscapes of Valdeorras
valley. This route is characterised by the existence of cliffs, known as “cavorcos”, with names like Paradela,
Valdaoliva, Nacedeiro and Os Castros.
After reaching the highest point, the route starts to descend through a riverside
forest, the result of the numerous streams that flow down from the mountains to Rubiá,
which we will cross via wooden walkways until we come to the end of the route.
From here, following in the
direction of the quarry for
about 650 metres, we can
return to the starting point.
