So last year when I discovered a new footpath between two local villages; Cofiño and Arriondas I knew this was the missing link for a new circular walk from the hotel along the Sueve Mountains but avoiding the 6 kms along the minor road. I wrote the self guided notes at the beginning of this season and now various guests have tested out the new notes and I am pleased to say none got lost!
|Open farmland along the walk|
The walk goes along a variety of different paths and tracks; following streams, passing through open farmland, along the Sueve Mountains and then finally skirts around the Peña Forcada and back to the hotel. However this circular walk involves a 600m accumulative ascent and in one small section attention needs to be taken with navigation, also in another part the path is quite rocky so this walk may not be for everybody.

|Stunning views from the Sueve mountains|
For those who do attempt the walk the scenery is varied and many of the views are simply stunning and then for those walkers with plenty of energy there is the possibility of including the ascent to the Summit El Pico Pienzo, but that makes it a total of 1200m ascent!
