GR 261: Stage 3: Fraga - Velilla de Cinca

Difficulty: Low

Distance: 20 Km

Time: 4 hours

We leave the roundabout of Fraga where we see the door of Aragon and an explanatory panel of the entire route. We take the ravine of the "old road", at the end of which we reach the area known as "l'Ompriu". We turn right and about 3 km, we turn left to enter the forest track, which we will cover in its entirety (3 km). The next crossing gives us the option of going to Miralsot (taking the right) or reaching Velilla de Cinca taking the left and going up the Magdalena slope, we reach the plain, after 2 km of ascent. Following on the right another 2 km we find the road "El Puerto" that we descend until we reach the A-131 road first and that once crossed we will enter Velilla de Cinca.

GR 261: Stage 4: Velilla de Cinca - Ballobar - Ontiñena - Chalamera

Distance: 29 Km

Difficulty: medium-low

T. approx .: 5 hours

BTT fit: NOT SUITABLE

We left the town hall of Velilla de Cinca to find the path that crosses the ditch below. We continue to the remains of the ditch, the river weir and the Hechiceras ravine that we crossed at the same time as the AVE bridge, alternating the soto and the parapet of the road. We leave the purifier on the right. We crossed the bridge of the A-131 road in Ballobar. We follow the path below him to go to find the medieval bridge that we crossed to reach Ballobar.

Right there, along the street that borders the river, we find the exit that leads to Ontiñena. We walk on the right bank of the Alcanadre river. We arrive at the ravine of Fraisner and ascend to find at the end the trail of the Forks that will take us to Ontiñena.

We will go down the road, crossing the bridge over the Alcanadre and a few meters away we will turn right where we find the well. By the soto of the river and following the marked road until the huega with Chalamera and the highway A-131 that we crossed by the indications. We will take the track that the trucks made (to pick up stones), we will ascend until we reach the huet of Ontiñena, Alcolea de Cinca and Chalamera. We go down the path of the paridera, until we reach the hermitage. From there we take the path of the pilgrimage that leads us to the town of Chalamera and gives us the option of visiting the remains of the castle.

Alternative: Velilla de Cinca-Ballobar

We left Velilla de Cinca and crossed the A-131 highway. We go up the road of the cars, turn right and continue along the old Ballobar road. Attending to the signals that we will find and through the new tracks of the land consolidation, we will arrive at Ballobar.
