We get up, knowing that we are nearing the end of the hardest stages of our Ignatian Way. We leave Genevilla in the direction of the Cabredo Mountain Pass. We take a dirt road that goes straight to Cabredo and runs parallel to the paved road. From the main square, past the church, we turn right and then left to go down a well-defined dirt road. Be careful, because our road begins after only 50 metres on the left and is not as broad and well-defined as the other one. A GR-1 signpost indicates the way to Cabredo. We continue straight on this road until we reach Cabredo, following the red and white signs.
We go straight through the village and just at the last houses, on reaching the road that would lead us to Marañón, we take a dirt road that goes off to the left. At this point we follow the GR 1 towards Marañon, on a road parallel to the paved road. The red and white signs guide us and we follow a path with trees that runs along the fields. At 1 km from Cabredo, we can see a milepost showing Marañon direction: we follow the path to the right and leave the main one on the left. We follow the road down and up at a time and go out into the open. A road joins us from the left, but we continue straight, just 100 m.
We see the town of Marañón in front of us. Attention here because the GR leads directly to Marañón and we have to turn left on a path that makes an angle of 45 degrees. No signals to help you, so you have to be careful not to miss it. This road climbs towards the mountain pass that leads to Lapoblación. Soon a fork and we take a right. The road goes up next to the fields. On our left a farming house. Our earth road ends in another well-marked road coming from Marañón. We turn left and we continue climbing. Please attention: in the first bend, we continue straight leaving the well-marked road on the curve. The road climbs up to a trail. We take it, always facing. The trail is well marked, but it is not a wide road. Up to the hill and to the NA-7211 road. Once we reach the asphalt road, we turn right and in a 50m again to the first road on our right. We go up for it and at the first intersection we take a left. This dirt road leads directly to the town of Lapoblación.
We go through the village following the paved road and continue straight on downhill. After 600 metres we take a dirt road going off to our right, which leads us to the village of Meano. We do not enter the village, but at the first fork, we keep left and later on, follow it as it bends right.
Walking out of town, we head for a fairly large grain farm but we don’t take his way but we look for another one that begins on our right. We can recognize the good road because it has stone benches for people to sit. We must not leave this path going up to a stone quarry with a good view of the valley. A road joins from the right, but we always face. Later we came to a crossroads and a little house of Aguas de la Rioja is on your right. Continue straight on the same road. We reach a sharp curve to the left and ignoring the upward path, we continue our descent. Within a few metres there is a new branch: take a left. We continue to Kripan.
We continue straight on until we reach some fields and the paved A-3220 road, which we take to our right. At the fork, we go right and we enter in the village of Kripan. We head to the center and reach the City Hall where we turn to our right to go closer to the church. We come up behind the church and we take straight on the paved road leading away from the village.
Please attention here: at 800 m from the village, on a curve that turns to our left, get out of the way and get into a poorly marked trail to our right. The trail has no signs, so you have to be careful crossing the fields, but the reference point we seek is the A-3228 asphalt road that is our right. At 700 m we reach the road at a point where a path begins with a signal indicating the Dolmen Los Llanos.
We cross the asphalt road and head to Los Llanos. We leave the prehistoric dolmen on our left and we continue straight until the first crossroads. We take a right angle to our left and we descend. At the next junction take a right onto the asphalt road and head to the Unueva park (there is a water source, but it is sometimes dry). After 400 metres we cross another road and go straight on the asphalt. After two bends, we arrive at a crossroads where we turn left. At the next crossroads we turn right. At a fork in the road, we keep left. We go straight and we ignore the path that comes from our left. We go straight on but at the next fork, we bear right. We go straight over the next crossroads before taking a left at the following intersection. We reach a paved road after passing a house on our left. We take the road to our right always following the same path until we get close to Laguardia. We cross the road and continue to the left to enter the village.
