Route Description:
This route starts from the town of Hermisende, we begin the route of the route in the square of the Church where there is a parking, we will start in this direction to the road that leads to the Tejera, after passing the center of the chestnuts to about 600 M. We leave the road on the dirt road on the right, where we find the signposting of this route at a junction of three paths, we go along the trail to the left.This road goes parallel to the Small river that in principle goes to our left side. We will cross this river a little later and the stream will now be on the right side, which we will later lose, then we will cross it again, positioning the stream on the left side again. The sound of this stream and the shadow of its abundant vegetation will accompany us almost all the way.

From here up to the right and in the waypoint nº 22 leaves a highway road that the passage of the time left marked on the stone the wheels of the old cars that walked by these mountain ranges. If we want to shorten our walk we can go down here as it will take us further down the path of the meadows and chestnut trees to waypoint nº 25.
We will continue straight ahead beginning to descend towards the town of Hermisende, shortly before arriving at the village we will find old chestnuts authentic monuments of the nature of the biggest of the province of Zamora. A little further ahead we will continue to the right by the road to close our route arriving at the town of Hermisende, we are very close to the bridge and the recreational area of ​​the river Tuela that is to our left.
