The walk is based upon Route 6 of the Ezcaray Ayuntamiento's Sierra Demanda walk inventory. However, the signing is very poor in the second half and at the two-thirds stage, the way was impassable due to impenetrable two-metre high, uncleared bracken. It has therefore been adapted to produce a slightly shorter but equally enjoyable hike. From the start point we follow the Rio Ayabarrena Valley to the little hamlet of the same name, before continuing to ascend this lovely valley to its head. Particularly beautiful in autumn, we pass through mixed woods to emerge high up on a fire-break below pine and follow it as it undulates in a southerly direction, rewarded with stunning views. Later we meet fenced-off game bird-rearing enclosures at Collado Santiago, from which we can see down the Rio Oja Valley to Ezcaray. Now we begin a steep descent back to Ayabarrena from where we retrace our footsteps to the start.
