Pico del Lobo
Pico del Lobo

With its 2,272 metres the Pico del Lobo is the highest peak of the Sierra de Ayllón and also of the autonomous community of Castilla-La Mancha. The hike to it is a classic ascent of a summit, and both from the top and during the walk to it over the crest, we have a beautiful view.

  • From the Puerto de la Quesera (1) we take the wide trail that we see at our right hand.
  • This wide trail eventually takes a turn to the left (2) after which we can see the trail to the peak of the Pico del Lobo at the right in front of us.
  • We eventually reach a sidetrail to the right (3) to La Pinilla, where we of course follow the signpost straight on to the Pico del Lobo.
  • Finally we arrive at about 2,272 metres at the Pico del Lobo (4).
  • From the summit we return via the same trail and at the sidetrail to the left to la Pinilla (3) we go straight on again.
  • We follow the same trail of the way out during some time until we arrive at about 1,800 metres, just before the trail starts to climb again (5). A few meters to the right we can see a wide trail to which we take a short-cut. This trail a bit further on converts into a comfortable wide path that brings us back to the Puerto de la Quesera (1).

Coriscao

Coriscao is a summit of over 2,235 metres that is located south of the National Park of the Picos de Europa. Because of this very privileged position and its relative prominence, it is one of the best balconies on the Picos de Europa, with a breathtaking panoramic view on this great mountain range. The ascent of almost 1,000 metres goes via a good path with a relatively gradual ascent. The way back, especially the descent along the Arroyo de Puermán, is slightly more difficult because of the lack of a good path.
