Redes Natural Park is located in the central-eastern region of the Cantabrian Mountains (2,648m), in the south of the Principality of Asturias, in the north of Spain. It stretches over 377.36 km2, within the municipalities of Caso and Sobrescobio, bounding with the Ponga Natural Park.
Recognized for its natural abundance and high state of conservation, Redes Park is a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve and a Special Protection Area for Birds (SPA). It features a great variety of landscapes: glacial formations, karstic caves and sinkholes, limestone gorges, lakes, vast fertile valleys, hills, and – mainly – forests. Dense wooded masses cover 40% of the park. While most of these are beech forests, it also comprises woods of alders, birches, ash trees, maples, oaks, yews, and holly, which host a great variety of fascinating wildlife, including all the typical species in northern Spain.
Redes Park lodges protected species of mammals, such as brown bears, otters, cave bats, and Geoffroy’s bats. Rare species such as the Iberian desman and the Iberian wolf, as well as chamois, roe deer, wild boar, martens, badgers, and foxes can be found as well. Among the birds, the park nurses the endangered Cantabrian grouse, as well as the real eagle, the alimoche, the peregrine falcon, and owls.
During our journey, we will travel a total distance of 47 kilometers, with a 2,391-meter ascent. Our meeting point will be Redes Natural Park’s Visitor Center, in the village of Campo de Caso. Departing from the small town of Bezanes (658m), during 3 days we will hike along the park’s trails, exploring its varied terrain, and climb a few prominent peaks, such as the Peña’l Vientu (2,000m) and the Cantu l’Osu (1,800m).
