High Point

Esta ruta comienza en el Barrio Alto de Vigo de Sanabria, tras pasar el último puente del pueblo encontraremos el camino por la margen derecha del Arroyo que en vertiginosa bajada forma pequeñas cascadas junto a los precipicios rocosos que contemplamos junto al cañón.

El camino está marcado con balizas de color rojo. Tras un duro ascenso entre brezo y retama, nos encontraremos con un puente con grandes losas de piedra sobre el Río Forcadura.

Tras cruzar el puente, el camino continúa ahora por la izquierda del verde valle del río, esta parte la haremos caminando en zig-zag. El camino nos llevará a una zona alta, al lado de la meseta, donde habrá un arroyo que dejaremos a nuestra izquierda, después de ascender un poco nos encontraremos con La Laguna de los Peces (1.707 metros).

Podemos alcanzar la Laguna de Peces y volver (4 horas) o aventurarnos a alcanzar la Laguna de Yeguas y la pequeña Laguna de las Salinas.

En este último caso no regresaremos sobre nuestros pasos, desde la Laguna de las Salinas seguiremos el curso del Río Forcadura hasta su encuentro con el Arroyo el Fuego y desde ahí, por el camino que subimos, regresamos a Vigo de Sanabria.
