Difference in altitude: 550 m
Type of route: crossing
Departure time: 08:15
Starting point: Trouts
Place of arrival: Wells

Description of the route: the route begins in the town of Truchas, and runs through the environment of four other towns in the Cabrera Alta region of León: La Cuesta, Cunas, Pozos and Manzaneda, all with a very rich ethnographic heritage . The itinerary begins with the ascent to La Cuesta and later to one of the mountain ranges of the foothills of Teleno, Matalacuesta and Matarredonda, above 1500 meters of altitude and with excellent views of Los Montes de León and from where summits such as Vizcodillo, Teleno and Trevinca. The path continues along several forest tracks between extensive heathland and pine tree groves, although the remains of old slate mines are also very evident in the landscape of this region. At the height of the town of Cunas the descent begins, first to the valley of the Prados river and later to that of the Pequeño river, which has carved out a beautiful valley and constitutes one of the main tributaries of the Eria river. This small river is crossed downstream, through a narrow road that still preserves the well-marked wear grooves in its bed, old stone walls, dams in the river of the abandoned meadows, slate quarries of the locals. In addition, as we get closer to the town of Pozos, some melojo oak stands still survive, surviving the large forest fires that this region suffers. Finally the route reaches Pozos, a town that preserves many of the typical buildings of the La Cabrera mountain.
