My wife and I will be traveling in northern Spain with another couple later this month. We plan to spend a few days in Parque Nacional de los Picos de Europa. We are considering a hike along the trail that passes through the Desfiladero del Rio Cares in the park. We don't have time to do the entire hike, but would like to start at the town of Cain at the southern end of the gorge and hike north for at least a few miles, and then return. I would appreciate any comments by someone who has done this hike: How's the scenery at this end of the gorge? What is the condition of the trail surface? Is lousy mountain weather likely to be an issue in the last half of September?
Thanks for any advice.
