Second stage of the cycling circuit, which runs between Riosa and Lena.
Summary Villapará Recreational Area - La Peral Recreational Area

This second stage of the GR-208 Central Mountains Cycling Circuit starts off from Viapará Recreational Area, located right on the climb up to the top of El Angliru, following this road up to the Llagos bend, where the GR-208 leaves the asphalt behind to go cross country along a wide track towards Campa Utiel. Here you have the choice between two variants: one, a hiking trail, which runs above Les Arroxines and follows the GR-206 Riosa Scenic Balconies Trail, ending in Rozacaxil; and the other, more suitable for cyclists, which runs along the downhill track from the turning to Campa Utiel to the road joining Riosa with the village of Llamo (RI-6), where you turn right to then head for Rozacaxil along a paved road. From then on, the trail is shared by both recreational and sports variants, following the course of the road to Llamo.

In the village of Llamo, take the concrete lane that climbs to the old Rioseco mining facilities and then continue on the track that climbs towards Cordal de la Segada ridge until you reach the point of Collado La Argañosa pass. This is a sustained climb among the foliage that offers views of two valleys at the same time: those of Riosa and Lena.

At Collado La Argañosa, continue along the road, turning right towards La Golpeya, which you will recognize thanks to a spring on the right, just above your head. Continue straight on along a track heading toward Collado Ablanedo col, passing through Prau Llagu along the Brañallamosa track, which you leave on the way from Collado Ablanedo.

Once you reach this typical col offering views of Brañallamosa Valley and La Peral Valley, both in the borough of Lena, you turn left to head steeply downhill to Collau Puercu. From there, you continue through open ground along wide trails which lead to the AS-230 road which goes up to Alto de La Cobertoria.

Once you reach the AS-230 road, cross over it and head downhill towards the Peral Valley Recreational Area, the end of this second stage.

In La Golpeya, you can also take the variant along the road which communicates with the AS-230 at a point very close to the La Peral Valley Recreational Area.
