Rounding the Reservoir

Camino(s) past & future
First one in 1977 by train. Many since then by foot. Next one ASAP.
In a few months I'll be setting off from Logrono again, and in no time at all will arrive at a beautiful reservoir in the Parque Granjera. .... The last time I arrived there (2015), I turned right at the reservoir, as per Brierley. I enjoyed the walk very much -- fond memories of chatting with the Peregrino Pasante, and of feeding the carp.... But someone whose opinions I respect has suggested that this time I should turn left at the reservoir, and take the road less traveled....

Should I? Anybody done that? I'm not a risk-taker, but I'm tempted!

Le Puy to Santiago via the Frances 2012-2013. EPW2015

It's a local park, and I think there are recreational trails all around the pond/reservoir. By going left, you would just circle around and rejoin; it might add a wee bit of walking time.

There's a map of the trails at the entrance to the park.

To Santiago and beyond (from home; Voie de Tours; Camino Francés; Biskaya; Manche; Via Brabantica)
You can walk and bike around the whole reservoir any way you want. You must stay on the trail for much of the time, except in an area on the right-hand side at the beginning (when approaching from Logroño). Click on the map for a better view.

Those who know me know that crosses don't do it for me, usually, After leaving Logroño and passing through La Grejera you hit the highway but instead of bumming out you come upon

61191 blessedly blocking the view!

I think I'll go to the right this time, just as I did before. ... Mostly to chat once more with the Peregrino Pasante. He may be a coot, but he's my kind of coot!
