On the Luarca to La Caridad stretch, please be aware that a short cut route marked in red between Hervedosas and Bao should be avoided. We navigated down this track which leads to a 100-150m storm water tunnel under the highway. The tunnel leads out into mud and then very dense, high bracken, with very sharp blackberry overgrowth. Visibility is compromised due to the height of the the overgrowth and it takes concentration to ensure you are still on track. Navigation was carried out with GPS and it was very hard to follow. To follow the dots exactly would have you walking on the impossibly steep incline leading up to the road. This route slows you down considerably. We spoke with others at the end of the day, who attempted this ‘short cut’ but they turned back after seeing the tunnel they would have to negotiate, with heavy packs.
