For this stage there are two possibilities:

2.-By Cotelas: This is the way outlined in this guide.
We leave Cea along the España street which leads to the OU-406/OU-402 highway which we don’t leave (photos 1 to 4) until km 6. We pass through the towns of Porto do Souto, Cotela, Piñor and Arenteiro until the 6 km mark (photo 5) at the entrance of the small town of O Reino where we leave the highway. Take a right and head in the direction of the N-525 which we cross (photo 6 km 6.6). Here we leave the tarmac and continue until the town of Carballeda (photo 7 km 7.4) where once again we join the N-525 highway.
We follow the N-525 for 1.8 km until the small town of Corná where we leave the highway and take a left. We continue along a secondary road (photo 9 km 9.4) passing over a bridge above the AG-53 motorway and 500 metres after the motorway we leave the small road to continue along a dirt track (photo 10 km 13.0 and 11 km 14.4). Just after we arrive to Castro Dozón this path joins to the highway which brings us back over the AG-53 motorway. The hostel is found at the entrance of the town.
