Trekking in Peña Ubiña Natural Park
The Macizo de Peña Ubiña , is a small mountain massif of singular beauty, which is located in the center of the Cantabrian Mountains, straddling the Asturian councils of Lena, Teverga and Quirós, and the Leonese region of Babia. Some authors of the XIX century called it the Agüeria massif. In the massif 58 summits of more than 2000 m are located , such as Peña Ubiña (2411 m), which gives its name to the massif, or Peña Rueda (2155 m), an imposing pyramid-shaped limestone mass. In Ubiña the highest heights of the Cantabrian mountain range are reached outside the Picos de Europa and its area of influence.
The Asturian area of the massif constitutes the Peña Ubiña-La Mesa Natural Park, which has been a Unesco biosphere reserve since July 11, 2012. The abundant forests are dominated by beech, oak and birch, and high mountain vegetation . In the area of the Puertos de Agüeria is the largest holly forest in Asturias . The fauna of the Cantabrian coast is present in the Ubiñas massif: Deer, Wild boar, Wolf, Deer, Rebeco, Roe deer, Nutria, Grouse and Brown Bear .
For two days, we will visit this beautiful Massif and its most important and unique corners, reaching the summit that gives it its name and that gives us one of the most beautiful views of the Cantabrian Mountains.
Meeting point: Parking of the town of Tuiza from above. Duration: 2 days.
Day 1: On our first day of trekking, we will depart from the town of Tuiza de Arriba (1,230m) , from where we will make a beautiful circular route, heading towards Llegu , a beautiful lake located on a privileged balcony over the Ports of Agüeria and excellent viewpoint towards Peña Rueda. We will close the route, going up towards the Bocarón pass, to go down directly to Tuiza de Arriba, from where we will go to the Meicín refuge (1,549m) , located in the center of the beautiful circus that forms the highest peaks of the massif, where we will enjoy a well-deserved dinner and we will spend the night.
Day 2: Ascent to Peña Ubiña (2,417m) . From the Meicín refuge, we will go up to the top of Terreros , and from there, head to the beginning of the normal route of ascent to Peña Ubiña, whose summit will give us exceptional views. Return to the Meicín refuge by the same route of ascent. From the refuge, a short descent will take us to Tuiza de Arriba , where our adventure ends.
