Did they reroute from O Pedrouzo?

This morning, I almost sent my pilgrims off in the wrong direction today from Pension Maribel. In the past Joe and I have gone back down to the main road to catch the Camino, but they were sent up and to the left to a forested track. Was I dreaming, or have they rerouted the trail?

When I walk alone, I do a bit of road walking.
Maybe that’s what I was thinking of?

2015-2019 walked all or more than half of CF 7 times... CP recently cancelled by Covid 19!
The path goes through the woods out of O Pedrouzo. We usually leave early in-the morning and I am not keen to walk through the woods in the dark. So we leave via N 547… the path and the road intersect in Amenal (circa5km) . After sunrise, I wouldn’t recommend walking on the road. Lots of traffic and trucks.

BTW there is an arrow shortly after you leave town, heading west (on 547) Yellow arrow on the pavement, right-hand side (north) which then reroutes one to the the path. However there was no official marker that I observed. But a couple who were behind us took it, and later, after Amenal, they came by us.

Hi Annie, I'm wondering when you last walked it? I think it's been pretty much the same for many years now. I seem to remember getting lost in the woods in the dark about 10 years ago when trying to make an early start... What I hadn't realised until I pulled up the map is that the path through the woods comes back to and crosses over the 547 further along. And on this map the road is marked as a cyclists route - so maybe that's the route the pilgrims walked many years ago?
I remember the camino is definitely marked as a right turn up to that complex of municipal buildings where it joins the path through the woods that bypasses O Pedrouzo

I walked in March, and took the forest route. It was splendid. But poorly marked and Appeared to send me down a dirt road to cross the highway ( bike route). I continued forward thru the forest on a fire lane to connect to the farm road leading into town. Very calming and scenic route.
