GR 35: Herding Path
This GR is the second path to use herding tracks in Guipúzcoa.
It connects the areas used by shepherds in the summer, the sierra of Aralar, with those used in the winter, closer to the coast.The paths between these two places are largely maintained and residents still talk of the passage of cattle and the dull sound of cowbells. The path joins the following GRs: GR 12, Water dividing line, GR 20, Aralar Round Trip, GR 34, Donostia-Arantzazu and with many small routes. This path has a 10 km. variant.
