The eastern Guara great challenge has spectacular panoramic views of Vero and Balced canyons and the whole Pyrenees. It’s a demanding enduro route that can be started from Lecina or Alquézar.

From Lecina it goes down to the Vero river and continues with a first hike-a-bike heading up to the amazing Vero view point. After a paved road section, the track links to a rocky singletrack descending to Lumos gorge and Villacantal bridge. Then another tough 30 minutes of hike-a-bike will take us near Alquézar. After crossing the village, a long dirt road climbs up to Mesón de Sevil, then leads to Tozal del Asba and before reaching the summit it descends by a narrow path to Santa María de la Nuez. The route finishes with one of the best singletracks of Guara, heading to Betorz and Lecina by gorgeous walled paths.
