Has anyone walking the Aragones visited the Lumbier Gorge?

Would love to know if seeing the gorge is practicable.

There are two alternatives, the old by Rocaforte, lonely and without sevices about 15 Km or the modern way by Lumbier. If you teke the second you pass trougth the gorges following the old trace of a railway. there are two tunnels so better if you carry an small torch, but tunnels are not very long an you can cross them without it.

I did it in 2009, before the idea of the new route going through the lumbier, and just at the time when the motorway was built and pilgrims were transferred to the national highway from lumbier village to izco. this is reflected in my wikiloc track: https://it.wikiloc.com/percorsi-escursionismo/camino2009-065-sanguesa-izco-22055595. I assume that the new route is much better now. this is a track from october 2016: https://it.wikiloc.com/percorsi-esc...-12-sanguesa-izco-por-foz-de-lumbier-15010148.
you don't need torches for the tunnels, they are short enough.
