The beginning of the first section of the route is located at 785 meters altitude, in the village of Barreiros, belonging to the parish of San Pedro de Bogo. The absence of arboreal vegetation during the first 600 meters of the road, allows us to admire an impressive panoramic view of the lush forest in which runs the Route of the Reigadas
The road turns sharply to the right to enter a mass of pines and then, we can see the characteristic vegetation of the forest or fraga, composed of oak, chestnut, hazel and holly, which will be accompanied by an abundant tapestry of breccias, ferns, cranberries, fungi and lichens that caress the rocks of the numerous streams and waterfalls
