Summary Cabañaquinta - La Colladiella

The sixth stage of the GR-208 Central Mountains Cycling Circuit starts out from the FEVE railway station in Cabañaquinta, heading along the AS-252 road towards the borough of Laviana. You follow this road for 1.5 km and then turn left down a path that leads to a water shed. A historic trail leading directly down to Serrapio starts at this point. You continue on from this village to the Shrine of San Vicente de Serrapio, where you then join the road that goes towards Uriés.

From this moment on, you climb the road for 1.6 km until reaching the village of Uriés. There you link up with the PR-205 and head up Caleya la Fuente lane to the outskirts of the village until you reach a wide track that leads up to the turning to San Fernando Pit, whose facilities can be visited. From there, you continue the uphill climb along the main trail towards the places called El Pinal and El Mayaín, always following the Uriés-Campa Espinera Greenway, until completing the ascent at Collado Ablanu col.

Here you have two options. The hiking option bears left, skirting La Burra Blanca Peak before reaching Campa Espinera mountain meadow. The mountain bike route continues straight on to La Navaliega, where the GR-208 bears left, heading steeply uphill towards Collado de Caballos col. After reaching the top, you start the descent towards Carva de Bustaleo. There are stretches of trails and concrete tracks that lead little by little up to Campa Espinera, where the trail joins up with the hiking variant. Here you will have magnificent views over the Turón Valley from Urbiés, where the trail joins up with the Greenway leading to Figareo.

The GR-208 Central Mountains Cycling Circuit continues on to Campa Cimera, oblivious to all the junctions such as the Turón Path or the Meruxal Path. It is a steady descent that becomes faster when you leave Pico Tres Concejos behind you on the way to the end of the stage at La Colladiella. Here you will see two landmarks crowning the place, the monuments to Miners and to the Maquis (mountain guerillas who continued to fight long after the Civil War ended).
