From the center of the town of Llanes we take the road that runs through the towns of Pancar and Parres to the Santa Marina junction. We follow the road to the right, narrow and winding, and we arrive at Altu la Tornería. Approximate distance from Llanes to Altu la Tornería: 10 km.

In the Altu we take a track to the left that, in slight ascent, brings us closer to the cabin and meadow of Los Corros. Here we will follow the path to the right to the Collau los Corros cabin. We now leave the path and take a path to the left that descends slightly and passes through a rocky area. Soon we pass through meadows and cabins and continue up the hillside to reach the old sheepfold of La Embía, a beautiful place surrounded by large beech, thorn, ash, chestnut, hazelnut and some holly, in which there are still remains of pastoral huts. We continue descending to the Llosa de Viango. Wide area of ​​pastures, practically flat, almost dreamlike and fabulous place for recreation. There is here a small lagoon and several ponds. As we move through La Llosa it narrows in the shape of a funnel. The path now goes slightly uphill to the colláu from which we can see a new valley: La Mardola. We go through the areas of pastures and cabins and reach the bottom of the valley. The trail now descends slightly to the Tornu river. We have to cross the river and ascend to a beautiful area of ​​pastures and cabins, called Pruneda. From here, by a wide gravel track, we descend to the town of Purón.
