From the detour (on the left is the Hostal O Guerra) keep making the Winter Way on the right (photo 1 km 0.2) by the road. Pass in front of a gas station (photo 2 km 0.5) and maintain yourself parallel to the PO-533 road (photo 3 km 1.2). Pass the Arnego River (photo 4 km 1.7) until you approach km 2 where you should make a detour to the right where a boundary mark and a sign of Punto Limpio are found (photo 5 km 2.0).
About 300 meters further, you should approach a crossroads where you should continue on the left (photo 6 km 2.3) by a dirt path. Follow this path (photo 7 km 2.9) for more than 1 km until you reach a new crossroads where you should continue on the right (photo 8 km 3.4). Follow this path for one more kilometer (photo 9 km 4.2) until you approach a new crossroads where you should continue on the right as well (photo 10 km 4.4). Less than 200 meters ahead, there is a new crossroads but this time you should continue on the left (photo 11 km 4.6) until you arrive to a river. Cross the river (photo 12 km 4.6) and a few meters ahead, turn to the left at the crossroads (photo 13 km 4.7).
When you cross again the river, you will enter Penerbosa where you should continue on the right at the first crossroads (photo 14 km 5.0). Keep going on your left (photo 15 km 5.1) and go through a group of houses (photo 16 km 5.2) until you reach a paved road where you should continue on the right (photo 17 km 5.5). Just a few meters ahead, there is new crossroads where you should continue on the left (photo 18 km 5.7) and just 400 meters you should make a detour to the left by the dirt hand-left path (photo 19 km 6.1).
Follow this path (photo 20 km 6.6) until one kilometer ahead you approach a crossroads where you should continue on the hand-right slope (photo 21 km 7.2). Pass the bridge over the river and keep straight on (photo 22 km 7.7) until you pass in front of a very curious house with a big photo of his owner on the patio (photo 23 km 7.8).
Then you will enter Penda, where you should keep straight on until you reach a small terrace where you should take the hand-left street (photo 24 km 8.0). Shortly afterwards, you will approach a new crossroads where this time you should continue on the right (photo 25 km 8.1), which will lead you to road (photo 26 km 8.2). Continue on the right for about 250 meters to make a detour to the left by a dirt path (photo 27 km 8.5).
After a half kilometer, you will pass in front of an odd windmill (photo 28 km 8.9) and shortly after there is a crossroads where you should continue on the left (photo 29 km 9.1). From this point, you should follow this path (photo 30 km 9.7) for about one kilometer more, until you reach a paved road (photo 31 km 10.0). Follow the road on the left and just a few meters ahead make again a detour to the left, where a boundary mark and a cross are found (photo 32 km 10.0), by a road that will lead you to Pedroso. At the house with red windows, make a detour to the left (photo 33 km 10.2) until you reach the road where you should continue on the right (photo 34 km 10.3).
Do not leave the road (photo 35 km 10.6) until you have covered 800 meters. Then you should make again a detour to the left (photo 36 km 11.1). Go through a group of houses (photo 37 km 11.6) and at the next crossroads, continue on the right (photo 38 km 11.6) where you will climb a gentle ascent. Then take the hand-left road towards Maceira (photo 39 km 11.8).
After about 400 meters, make a detour by the hand-right slope (photo 40 km 12.2). At the next crossroads, keep straight on (photo 41 km 12.6) and the path turns into dirt. More than one kilometer further, there is a new crossroads where you should continue on the left (photo 42 km 13.9). At this point starts a gentle ascent (average of 6%) of one kilometer (photo 43 km 13.3). After 300 meters downhill, you will start a new climb (photo 44 km 15.3) but gentler than the previous one (photo 45 km 15.7) until you reach a road that you should cross to follow the dirt path (photo 46 km 16.0). From this point, you will start to descend for about one kilometer (photo 47 km 16.7 and photo 48 km 16.7). At km 17.3, there is a crossroads where should continue on the left (photo 49 km 17.3) and straight on (photo 50 km 17.7) until you reach the road. Then cross the road and take the hand-left path (photo 51 km 18.1).
After about 300 meters, you will get to the town of Palmés where you will pass in front of a group of houses on the outskirts (photo 52 km 18.4). Later you will go through the center of the town following the yellow arrows: at the first curve you should keep on the left (photo 53 km 18.8), at the second one on the right (photo 54 km 18.8) and at the third one on the left (photo 55 km 19.0) and finally straight on (photo 56 km 19.1 and photo 57 km 19.2) until you get out of the town (photo 58 km 19.4).
Follow this road (photo 59 km 19.6) for about a half kilometer (photo 60 km 20.1) until you reach the PO-533 road (photo 61 km 20.1) where you should continue on the right by the long straight entrance to Lalín (photo 62 km 20.2). At the first curve, you will see a fountain on your left (photo 63 km 20.5), then keep straight on until you approach a traffic circle (photo 64 km 20.8). Afterwards the street becomes a pedestrian street (Cólon Street) follow it and pass next to the Sculpture of the Pig (photo 66 km 21.3). Keep straight on by this street until it turns into del Regueiriño Street, which will lead you to a tunnel that goes under the N-525 road and right away to a dirt path. By this dirt path you will enter a park known as Paseo Fluvial (photo 67 km 22.4) which you should cross for about one kilometer (photo 68 km 23.0 and photo 69 km 23.6).
Afterwards you will reach a paved path (photo 70 km 24.0) that you should follow (photo 71 km 24.4) for about 700 meters until you approach a crossroads where there is a sign stop and where you should turn left (photo 72 km 24.7) for about 40 meters until you reach the N-525 road. Cross the road and once you are on the other side of it, continue on the left (photo 73 km 25.1). Continue straight on and downhill until you reach a new crossroads on the right (photo 74 km 25.3) where should take the ascent towards Polígono Industrial Lalín 2000 (photo 75 km 25.4). This will lead you to a traffic circle with a sculpture in the middle (photo 76 km 25.6) and where should take the second exit (photo 77 km 25.6). Keep straight on by this street and ignore the first detour (photo 78 km 26.0) after which a gentle slope will begin (photo 79 km 26.4). Turn right on the first street at the end of it (just after the stop sign). This path, that is parallel to the N.525, turns into a dirt path a little bit further (photo 80 km 26.6) and makes you pass under the tunnel that is over the road (photo 81 km 26.9). Then it turns into a paved road. Follow it (photo 82 km 27.0) until you approach the Hostel of A Laxe that is located just 100 meters away (photo 83 km 27.1).
