DESCRIPTION

 

Second enduro route in the Sierra de Arbe sector. Very worked and with a lot of quality and surprises on the trails.

Pass and you can leave from any of the 3 towns that it runs through: Abizanda, Escanilla and Lamata.

Much heritage like the castle of Escanilla and more things that you will discover.

Images of the Pyrenees and the Somontanos that the hill of the Sierra de Arbe offers us from its crest hermitage: San Benito. But later another emblematic hermitage San Victorián.

On the cycling level it is excellent and different. We combine limestone, sandstone and conglomerates, different styles.

Attention: The track that goes up to San Benito is hard and stony.

 

TERRAIN

 

42% of singletrack (9,5km). Very changeable area, with limestone, sandstone and conglomerate.

 

RECOMMENDATIONS

 

This route passes through 4 hermitages and two castles. Lots of scenery. Take time to enjoy it.
All year round. In the summer, leave soon.
