It became one of the most important roads of communication between Asturias and the central plateau, circa 10th century. Although its current name dates from the 18th century by Arcediano of Villaviciosa, Pedro Díaz de Oseja.

The original route begins in Amieva village and ends in Pontón mountain road pass, but we suggest a circular trail, turning off at Beza pass towards Vegabaño Refuge, spending the night there and returning through “La Jocica”, accompanying the Dobra River in its first steps.

Stage 1. Collado Angón – Vegabaño. 12 km. 1000 m+ 400 m-

After passing Amieva, we leave the vehicle in Angón, where a fabulous Roman road begins, through which we will gain altitude through the forest and gradually begin to make out the great channel of Ozania and the tops of the western massif. As well as the Cabronero Peak that we will surround on this route, along with Peña Beza.

We cross the Toniello meadows and the Beza pass to admire the amazing Sajambre valley, and start a gentle descent towards the refuge among beech trees that seem to speak to us.

Stage 2. Vegabaño – Collado Angón. 13 km. 400 m+ 1000 m-

After a huge and delicious mountain breakfast, we start the return with the steep descent to Carombo, to follow the course of Dobra River, although it sometimes goes underground (Dobraseca) and reaches the hidden Restaño dam. From there we will walk along the track to our starting point.
