The clothing can be suitable for each time of the year, and preferably as light as possible. Footwear must be comfortable, wearing slippers or hiking boots. Don't forget a raincoat or raincoat and a canteen full of water. Bring a hat or sun hat. It would be advisable to have a compass even though the path is perfectly signposted.

  • AREA OF FARMHOUSES AND MEADOWS: Here you can appreciate the local crops.
  • OLD ROAD THAT JOINED QUEQUEIXO WITH CARNALOBA: Beautiful path surrounded by oaks and low mountain that we travel along the slope of the Padela mountains.
  • CLIMB TO THE "PADELA" MOUNTAIN: The way up the mountain is lined with oak trees, closed with strong stone walls that bordered the hens (Lands that are not worked or produced crops, only for wood or firewood).
  • PANORAMIC VIEW: This is the highest point of the route from which we can admire the entire Padela valley. We will walk between the cliffs at the top until we meet again with a small path that will take us to the descent of the route.
  • DANGEROUS Descent: We begin the descent towards the bottom of the valley through a small oak grove until we meet the trail again.
  • WOODED AREA: This is one of the most wooded areas of the route, in which we can see the tallest oaks and holm oaks (a protected species in danger of extinction).
  • THE BRIDGE: We cross the stream for the last time and start walking along the lower path that will lead us to the end of the route.


The upper part of the route is made up of low mountains, in which the uz, carpaza and brush predominate. Leaving the low area for deciduous oak and chestnut forests. Bordering the entire stream we find alder trees. The holly stands out on the east side.


It is very varied, it stands out for being a residential area for the wolf (an endangered species), we will also find wild boars, foxes, roe deer and badgers, passing by the dancing rabbit and the "Lord of the forests", the goshawk. In addition to the well-known pigeons and woodpeckers.
