Route Bulnes Majada de Arnández

A fold with excellent views

A short distance from the town of Bulnes there is a bucolic and charming corner with excellent views over the Picu Urriellu (Naranjo de Bulnes), it is the Majada de Arnández. It is a route of low and affordable difficulty.



In the past, when the town of Bulnes had a multitude of inhabitants and they lived on livestock, they needed spaces to take their flocks to them, among these places is the Majada de Arnández.

The excursion to this beautiful corner it will take us calmly one hour on the way and we will only overcome an unevenness of 350 m. The flock is on the level of the 1.000 m. above sea level and is set apart from traditional routes so we can enjoy in the place of a total and absolute tranquility while we contemplate in front of us the small pile of the Picu Urriellu (Naranjo de Bulnes). The difficulty of the excursion is low.

Where does the route start?

To reach our goal we will have to leave Bulnes by the road that goes to the viewpoint of the Naranjo and the Pandébano hill, which is caught in the vicinity of the bridge next to the church. After a few minutes we will reach the aforementioned viewpoint (a little way out of the way) from which we will see the Picu and also to our right in the rainy season or thaw a waterfall (La Cascada de Las Mestas) and behind it a boxy gorge that gives entrance to the Balcosín Canal. Also, depending on the time, we will have the opportunity to see a strong water outlet from the rocks (a farfau) as a result of the large number of caves and interior chasms that exist in these mountains and collect rainwater or snowmelt . Behind us we will have the two neighborhoods of Bulnes and in the background the Amuesa canal.

We continue the route between meadows and hazel trees that define the path. We must always follow the most marked path discarding any other that we can find on the right.
After a half hour of constant walking, we will reach a point where we have to cross the river and we will see a cabin located on the top on our right. We are in El Cantiellu. If we go up to the cabin and look north, we will have a magnificent view of the entire Bulnes valley with its two neighborhoods and the Amuesa Canal.

Let's go back to the road next to the river. Coming from Bulnes and before crossing the river, there is a road to the left that goes up to a meadow located just opposite the cabin that we saw earlier on our right and to which we will now turn our back to climb the prairie trying to take the road that runs through it and respecting the grass that can be used by the neighbors for animal pasture. Soon we will arrive at a grouping of cabins and stables, We are in the Majada de Arnández. The purpose of this place was to bring the cattle here during the summer by the neighbors of Bulnes.
It is located in a bucolic place surrounded by meadows and wooded spots at the same time that it is contemplated a magnificent view of the Picu Urriellu or Naranjo de Bulnes, the forests of Mount La Varera and Mount Acebuco, Cueto Albo and even a part of the Trabes as well as the Amuesa Canal.
