Description -

After passing through La Pola, take a path crossing the bridge on the left which leads to El Mazo and Peñaseita, where there is another pilgrim hostel. Return to the path to El Mazo to head uphill to El Panchón following a pathway beside the power line. Some 3 kilometres further on, the path links up with the road that goes up to El Palo Pass and continues for 5 kilometres to the hamlet of Montefurado, where there used to be a pilgrim hospital. It is also the spot where the path ends for those who ventured to take "Los Hospitales" trail. From here, a path to the left of the village running parallel to the road around a small hill leads to Lago. In Lake, turn right by a pine wood to cross the road and then continue on the left along the so-called French Route to Berducedo, where there also used to be an ancient pilgrims' hostel and a hospital, now lost. The next landmark is the village of A Mesa (which has a hostel for pilgrims), now in the borough of Grandas de Salime, which you reach after skirting Berducedo Ridge.
