Description

This is a medium difficulty trail due to its slopes and, even though it passes through a stretch of track, it does not require too much technical preparation.

It passes through meadows and the lower region of the Tuca spruce forest. The views of this area of Arán are very pleasant.

Leaving Betren, go through the village along the main street and cross the C-28 road to take the trail that leads to Tuca. At kilometer 3.5, take the crossroads to the left and then the track that starts descending, which will quickly become a trail on the right. The arrival to the village of Escunhau, with its bell tower in the foreground, is quite spectacular. To finish the loop, go up on the right track and at km 6 you’ll reach the highest point of the trail, where you’ll start the descent to Betren and Vielha.

You can visit the village of Escunhau in the middle of the trail, which hides some very interesting surprises.
