Pico del Águila (Eagle’s Peak ) is the perfect place to enjoy three exciting and completely different descents in just one route.
The itinerary climbs up steadily by a paved road from Arguis to Pico del Águila pre-summit in about 1 h. There it joins a path that continues ascending to the summit, where the first exciting downhill section starts. It’s an exhilarating descent with nice cornering until Mesón Nuevo. From there a dirt road climbs up to Sierra de Bonés, where another lovely Pyrenean-style singletrack ascends to a pass. The second downhill trail is very rocky and quite tough so our strength will be tested. Once in the paved road we must climb again to Mesón Nuevo to enjoy the last descent, this time by flowy marlstone, heading first to Arguis and from there to the starting point of the route.
