Our route begins in the Laguna of Uña, where we can see a multitude of species that find their home here as spoon ducks, mallards or small diving, and in their waters, barbos, river bugs or tents.
We border the Laguna de Uña to start an 11-kilometer trail with about 300 meters of unevenness that we are going to rise trough the Escalerón and, although it sounds hard, we promise you that this effort has its reward.
Once we get to the top, you will understand why it is one of our favorite routes.
From the high of Los Cortados you will contemplate this magnificent landscape and even admire the vultures that fly over the lagoon.At this point we will make use of the observation equipment (binoculars and telescope) to see the birds that frequent the lagoon.
At the moment of the descent through an alley full of vegetation where we can interpret all the flora of the área. This spectacular crack arising from the rock is what we know as La Raya, and from there we will star our descent till get back to the town of Uña.
Our biggest recommendation: Don’t forget to bring your camera because you will want to immortalize this experience that, without any doubt is one of the most impressive of la Serrania of Cuenca.
