The Path of the Bear
This is one of the best-known itineraries for bikers and hikers, whatever your level of experience. Originally a railway line, it’s now a Greenway that passes through the villages of Quirós, Santo Adriano, Proaza and Teverga. On this excursion you might even be lucky enough to spot a Cantabrian brown bear. It’s a route of around 30 kilometres, and you’ll see that on the map it looks rather like an inverted ‘Y’. You could do the whole thing in one go - if you’re feeling particularly energetic - although we’d recommend doing it in two stages so that you can fully enjoy your surroundings. If you choose to do this, you’ll go to the left of the Trubia river, later leaving it on your right, and taking the path between the river and the road. Great for a getaway, or if you’re travelling around Asturias. La Senda del Oso is very near Oviedo, the capital of the region.
