This road connects Lizarrusti with the Oria Valley. It is very useful if want to use public transport as the railroad or the bus and ascend later afoot up to the park. Obviously it is possible to realize it in both senses. It is not the shortest way between valley and park, but it is more interesting than the route that without descending to Zaldibia, and passing Amundarain and Intsusti's fountain might serve us to ascend more rapidly if it was the case.
We will cross karstic zones rich in megaliths and it is shepherds' habitual route. Under our feet, though it emerges in few occasions, runs the key element that has shaped the environment: water, which shines with all its brilliance in Lareo's reservoir. The landscape is splashed by numerous sheep flocks, which graze on meadows and his respective bordas and sheepfolds - Oidui is the most representative-.
The tour ends in Ordizia, village of an interesting market, highlighting the special one of September, where there is chosen the best cheese of the year and the other on March, with the step of the shepherds in their way towards the pastures of mountain.
