Mascún River Canyon is one of the most spectacular and stunning natural areas of Southern Pyrenees. It features an endless amount of limestone needles and vertical walls that stand over the pristine waters of Mascún River. The best way to discover this privileged area is by running on its high trails offering to the runner wonderful panoramic views of the river canyon.
Starting from Rodellar, the route consists of two joined loops. The fi rst of them ascends through Mascún River Canyon by the so-called «Costera de Otín» passing by the beautiful «Ciudadela». After leaving Otín, the trail head towards «Saltador de las Lañas» crossing Vero river course and leading to Cheto. The second loop departs from Rodellar and climbs to the top of Sierra de Balcés heading towards Las Almunias and Pedruel before going back to Rodellar.
