Go up to the Mirador de Alcolea de Cinca

It is a round trip that goes into one of the most impressive river cuttings of the Cinca River, while visiting the most outstanding steppe zone of the Cinca Medio region.

This begins in Alcolea de Cinca and takes an ascending path that winds southwest. After about 340 meters of steep climb, the path leaves a dirt track that takes to the left and that advances on the impressive cuttings, eroded over thousands of years and known as ripas.

A few meters away from the track, there is a viewpoint crowned by a cross. This place is the roof of the town and where formerly was the hermitage of the Cross.

The route continues along the main road, close to the cut. Llaneando, passes by some antennas while on the right leaves a crop area and on the left, the fall of the impressive ripas, with views over the valley.

There comes a time when the route separates a few meters from the saw to get closer to the sasos of Alcolea, the largest and best preserved steppe area of the Cinca Medio.

About 3 km from the beginning, a small stone building appears in ruins and, a few meters after the building, the route leaves the flat on the ripas and begins the strong descent that leads to the HU-V-8611 road.

From the asphalted road the views are very different since, now the huge walls are on the route. After enjoying these wonderful geological formations, the itinerary returns to the village along the same path.
