We recommend 6 of the most popular ones, which are perfectly signposted and can be started from the Hotel or very close to Biescas.
R21 – TOUR OF THE OROSES. Easy itinerary on paved roads and tracks in optimal condition. Accessible to families with children. It runs through the villages of Orós Alto and Orós Bajo. You can take this opportunity to go for a swim in the small natural pools that you will find along the route.
