A tour of Lezáun village that shows us the diversity of the flora and fauna with landscapes and corners of great beauty.
We depart from the plaza of the Town Hall, in the upper part of the town where we take a dirt and stone track. On both sides of the track we can see pig farms (on the surface we can see symptoms of overgrazing).
We cross a metal gate, leaving the water tank on our left; continuing straight. At the fork: we ignore the path to the left at kilometre 1.053. Eyes straight ahead, in the distance, we can see Trinidad of Iturgoyen. We can also see the first beeches amongst holm oaks (kilometre 1.270) which determines the Atlantic-Mediterranean transition. Little by little the path enters into the beech grove and you can see magnificent examples of beech trees.
The waterhole to the left on ground higher than the trail may go unnoticed. We ignore the paths to the right.
Waterhole to the right. Poor road conditions with deep holes which run parallel to the ravine.
You can see another waterhole going upstream. You can appreciate the capricious limestone formations in this enclave, as well as the existence of a stone wall that marks the milestone between Lezáun and Iturgoyen.
The path becomes blurred on the flat. We ascend by the pastures until we run into the stone wall marked “I amuga”. Once at the wall, we turn left and follow the trail that takes us to Lezáun (there is an area where you cannot see the trail however, you can guess where it is by the marks left by four wheel dives) firstly crossing the plain and later descending little by little. Beautiful views up high: the northwest part of the Aitzgorri mountain range, the Dulantz mountain to the east and to the south Montejurra, Monjardín, La Sierra de Cameros (in the Rioja region) and on clear days you can even see Moncayo.
We converge, after a steep descent, to the initial path we took and arrive at Lezáun.
