Distance: 5.9 km, Time: 2:00 hrs, Climb: 327 m., Category: Demanding

An adventurous circular route with magnificent views over the Bizkaia coastline, including a visit to Cabo Billano. Combining stretches along paths good under foot with other more uneven ones, this is a demanding route, aimed at more experienced practitioners of this discipline. Starting from the same point as the blue and black routes, this route heads towards Cabo Billano along the coastal path. It continues eastwards along the path to the Lighthouse, dropping down to Gorliz via Txornako Estrata, a stretch it shares with the Larragan (blue) route.
