From the village of Guímera, you have to follow the forest track for approximately 13 km, in summers you can get there by vehicle.
The route follows the track that runs up the valley, parallel to the Cúa River and later branched off in two, on the right towards the port of Cienfuegos and on the left towards the Refugio de la Pesca and towards the town of Suertes, through of the good luck. In the upper part of the slope, we can see the tunnel through which the Tormaleo coal passed, and through a system of cagilones, supported by 93 turrets, it crossed the Fornela valley to the thermal one of Compostilla, in Anllares.
