DISTANCE: 7,5 km
CLIMB: +520 m
TIME: 2 - 2:30 h
WITH MUD: Feasible
AREA: La Fueva
It is a very short route, but it can be extended with its variant or combined with other routes.
Here you go up to Tozal de Palo, a natural watchtower overlooking the Cinca valley and the Mediano and El Grado reservoirs in its most spectacular section: the Entremón.
The ascent has very hard ramps at the end. The descent follows an old limestone path. It is more difficult at first, getting easier as you continue. You will pass by the Romanesque in Lombard style hermitage of San Clement, a pearl hidden in the mountain. It is worth a visit.
Variant from Humo de Muro: With this loop you can lengthen the route with a very good descent to Humo. Careful, you have to cross the Usía River twice, so avoid rain.
33% single track. Limestone. No mud.
To visit: Palo and hermitage of San Clement
