Barranco de Mascún - Sierra de Guara

Browse the corners of this canyon is like diving into an evocative world of mineral forms. It never ceases to amaze the variety of shapes, rocky spiers and whims of their crests. If a tour that does not lead to any top should surprise for its scenery, is surely this.

Pay attention to the overflow of the river as it may hinder the progression. We would have to make paths to avoid the river that often are not easy to locate.

Access to the trailhead should be done by taking the N-240 and Bierge Abiego detour. From here the HU-341 to Rodellar.

In reaching Rodellar have to go to the north to the La Honguera, which is slightly separated from what is at the heart of the village. From here we headed down a path that slight rise heads north-west direction of the ravine looking for now is on our left. We found a cruce marking indicating clockwise La Virgen del Castillo.

We left this diverted to our right and headed down the ramp on the left. In few feet start to go down decisively toward the ravine. Once in the bed of the ravine began to trace it upstream to the right.

At this point you should pay special attention to the flow of water if plentiful outing would be best left for another day.

Following the river whenever we find another intersection marked by the Coast to Otín. This will be our way back and by the time we move forward by the river.

In front we have very obvious rock formations. The Torre de Santiago, The Citadel and La Cuca Bellostas

From here we will go looking fords or crossing our shoes depending on the amount of water that goes down the runway.

Our path always remains at the bottom ofl ravine, past the rock known as La Pipa will see to our left holding the balance.

Later the course turns left and we have a step that we must overcome if there is water. Just before the curve to the left and marked with a cairn, we will see a small path that will allow us to gain altitude and pass the flooded stretch about 20 feet above the water level.

In the course again we met some great blocks that will lead to chaos Onso in the case of being flooded back to draw a path on the left that passes by some caves.

Just go back to bed another path to the left will allow us to overcome another flooded passage.
Ahead we have 200-meter dash for the bed to reach El Beso, where two side rocks seem to touch at the top. If Kiss is flooded we find the path through the vegetation to the right.

Right orter side of the Kiss, marked with cairns, to the left of the runway will see the path by which we ascend without loss to the abandoned village of Otin. The road starts to climb the cliff dodging quickly gained altitude and the Path of Duty.

On reaching the village of Otin, after crossing a creek, the trail continues to the left leaving the neighborhood of the Church to our right and starting to descend again into the ravine Mascún.

The path descended has spectacular views over the rocks before we could see from the river.

Now back to the river we can only undo the path taken at the start of our route.
