Ermita de San Bartelome 46.4 km

Circular MTB route in the Sierra de Cameros, La Rioja, Spain starting in the village El Rasillo. The part from El Rasillo to Nieva de Cameros follows the GR93. After Nieva a short descent and then the climb starts. The last meters to the Llano de la Turquilla are very steep, some will have to walk here a short distance. As the name already suggests, once at the Llano de la Turquilla the track becomes rather flat. From the Llano de la Turquilla the Ermita de San Bartelomé can be reached conveniently. Next a descent to Nestares and then to Torrecilla. From Torrecilla the best option is to take the asphalt road to Pradillo, the first part is still enjoyable, very quiet, the last kilometres asphalt have more traffic, be careful. From Pradillo there is a track to Montemediano and then its a short distance back to El Rasillo.
