Top route to enjoy a day of nature with the family. Starting and finishing point is located in the recreational area of La Aceña, bathed by a lake and located next to the Montes de Hierro Greenway. From here we will gradually ascend to the Montes de Triano, combining stretches of gravel with concrete and dirt between lush forests of oak, beech and eucalyptus trees.
We will reach a drinking fountain from where we can enjoy panoramic views of Galames as we continue to climb. To do this, we will follow a small path that will lead us to a pasture where we can view animals in the wild. As we approach the rocks of the Montes de Triano, vestiges and stories of the mining past will appear.
We will surround some curious hamlets that will be the prelude to our arrival at the imposing natural arch of Urallaga, which was the entrance of Mina Pepita in the 19th and 20th centuries, better known today as the Cueva de La Magdalena, Magdalena Cave, patron saint of miners.
From here, we will return to our starting point along the way, until we reach Lake La Aceña, cross the river and reach the picnic area, the most suitable place to regain energy and end the route.
Once we have enjoyed the cave, we will return along the same path, reaching Lago de La Aceña (lake), crossing the river and reaching the picnic area, an ideal spot to regain energy and end the route.
