Detailed route

The route begins in the mountain refuge in Riglos, from there we will take the main road direction the Mallos off Riglos. Take, a few meters after leaving the town, a turn to the left, take the path PR-HU98 direction La Peña por Carcavilla.
Following this path, where we will always have the river on the right, at a given moment we will cross the railway and after 2km we will arrive at the hydroelectric power station off Carcavilla.
From there we will leave the PR-HU98 and take the stairs off the pipeline from the central following a path that in a few metres will have a turn on the left side to approach and cross over a small ravine arriving in an area with old neglected fields. After this stage the ascent is really obvious, first in an open zone without shadow going up to the vegetation, passing through the pine and boxwood area.
Around the 6.5 km we will arrive in a plane zone where will have to make a short turn to the right to follow the road PR-HU98 again towards Riglos, the ascent is through the forest direction to the high side off the Mallos. In a few meters we will stop climbing and start a descent that will take us to an intersection of paths well indicated with posters like Sendero Circular a los Mallos o Camino del Cielo (blue sign).
From that point we will be taking the ascent on the left to face the last climb, in this one is where we will find a stunning image of the Mallos. Once on the highest point of the ascent, we will follow the descent path until a plane zone, from where we could reach to a small viewpoint. Without leaving the path we will start descending. A bit before arriving at the GR-1 or Camino Natural de la Hoya, that we will see below, we will take a turn to the right to a very marked ground entrance to take a path that will lead us to a small dry ravin that we will cross over and take us to the town where the church is. From there we cross the town Riglos to arrive at the end.
Water: you should take what you would may need depends the weather and time of the year.

Once on the highest point of the ascent, from where we could reach to a small viewpoint off the Mallos, follow without leaving the path, we will start descending until we find the point the gives us the sign off the intersection with Camino del solano, just before arriving at the Mallo Colorado.
Once in the Camino del solano (yellow sign), carrying on for a path that goes up and down for a few km, leaving for a forest path where we will take a descent path to the right. following the same way until the Collado de Santo Román, intersection with GR-1, Camino Natural de la Hoya and the GR-95. In this intersection we will go on to the path to the south with destination castillo de Sarsamarcuello y la ermita de San Miguel.
From the hermitage, we will go on to the turn climbing the path PR-HU99, that goes to the mountain ridge that takes us to environment off the Peña del Sol. Once there, the path leads in between beautiful pine trees and a little bit further we find excellent views on both sides, where there is an intersection. from there we will take the right to take a path that, in about 2km of descending, will lead us to the path to Camino Natural de La Hoya.

Following at the left on the path Camino Natural de la Hoya for a few km to take a path at your left side (PR-HU96), what, in constant climbing, in between pine trees and cultivation will lead us to the hermitage of Santa Marina. This stage is one off the most beautiful and nice to run. CLose to the hermitage (at 200m, leave the path and a little it down there is a water reservoir) there is a fountain with non drinkable water to refresh. from there we will follow the PR-HU96 direction nord passing by a beautiful pine tree that will lead us to a forester zone, once there we will take a left turn, direction south, until arriving again on the point with the views on the intersection where we have passed before.
Now we will take the ascent of the ravine Forcallo. An fast ascent without much difficulties and in the shadow, passing by a forest with pine trees and beech trees. Passing by the fountain “las vacías” and going inside the ravine until arriving a path where we will turn left (GR-95 sign) and in a few km the ascent will lead us to the to the intersection off Collado de Santo Román.
From Santo Román we will take the descending path with the sign GR-1 and Camino Natural de la Hoya towards Riglos, and where we pass the turn with the fountain “ls Clérigos” (where we do not enter), we will follow the path that leads to Riglos. We will find a little bit later an intersection with the sign to go to the Vía Ferrata de Cubillillo o Los Fils, where we turn the sense by taking the path where the creek crosses and following climbing the route that is down from the Peña de os Fils. In the most open part of the forest we will notice a turn to the right where will start the path that takes us to Linas de Marcuello.
Very soon we will see at the right a sign with rocks at the beginning of a path going down that will lead us to the most attractive views of the small Mallos and the path that takes us to Riglos. When passing the water reservoir and water tanks, we will look for an intersection where will will go to the right to climb again a little bit around the Mallos off Riglos or the Camino del Cielo (blue sign), we will take a path well indicated who goes left and descends. After crossing over the small dry ravone we will arrive in the town off Riglos, at the church. From there on we cross the town and arrive at the end.
