near Tresviso, Cantabria (España)

This is a unique walk that joins the Canal del Rio Urdon which contours the side of the Cañon del Urdon. It supplies water to the hydroelectric scheme at the end of the cañon at Urdon that was completed in 1912. Although the canal contours the path doesn't as the canal passes through many tunnels only one of which the route follows. The final part of the walk follows the Urdon to Tresviso path.

    We walked this route again on the 6th August 2013 and were once again amazed by it. The combination of engineering, wildlife and views are fantastic. The path has deteriorated in 2 years and a great deal of care is needed at times. This walk is not for the faint hearted.

    Había tramos que no se podían ir por el canal de agua y no se indica, además en una parte no se podía seguir por el canal y tampoco se indica.
