Trail 4. Par la Vallée de Chistau
TRAIL 4: SAN JUAN DE PLAN-VIRGEN BLANCA-(BIADOS)-BALSA DEL ABET- ERMITA DE SAN MAMES-SAN JUAN DE PLAN
Variante 4.1: Atajo hacia el puente del Hospital de Gistaín
The scenic valley of Chistau with its natural richness is unquestionable due to it bordering the Natural Park of Posets-Maladeta. Primarily, the cycling itinerary meanders along the river Cinqueta, an authentic picture postcard and paradigm of the countryside adapted by a traditional, rural life. On return, one gains quite an altitude along the left side of the river and passes through some idyllic places such as the "Balsa del Abet" (a small lake) or the stone huts of San Mamés. There is the possibility of cutting the route in half with the variation 4.1, which avoids the ascent to the Balsa del Abet.
