Peonera ravine in the Alcanadre river is one of the legendary canyons of the Sierra de Guara.

This itinerary goes around the canyon departing from Bierge resulting in a circular route, tough but rewarding with excellent panoramic views of Sierra de Guara, Sierra de Balcés and the Peonera and Balced canyons. The bulk of it goes through dirt roads in good condition, although between Pedruel and Morrano we’ll find very steep slopes, upwards and downwards, where good technical skills are required.

A short but intense singletrack section arriving to Las Almunias is another incentive to this already comprehensive route, recommended to experienced cyclists.

  • Balced Sierra and Canyon.
  • Olive and almond tree fields.
  • Panoramic views of Guara and Peonera canyon.
  • From Las Almunias Pass to Las Almunias there’s a rocky but not-too-difficult singletrack, a good introduction to the enduro routes of the area .
  • The gravel road descending to Morrano and Huertos de Juan is extremely steep and with loose rocks, so it’s better to do it slowly or even walking in some sections. The same applies for some climb sections coming from Pedruel.
  • In rainy season is better to skip the dirt road from Morrano towards San Román, heading by the paved road to Bierge.

Signalling

  • GPS tracking route.
  • From the surroundings of Bierge to the junction with Rodellar road HU-341, the track follows the marked route “Campos de Bierge”.
  • After topping off Barranco Fondo by paved road and passing by Balced View Point by dirt road, the Camino Natural del Somontano must be followed towards Las Almunias. From there the same marked route continues till Morrano surroundings. Last kilometres of the route are not signposted.
