Climb Description

Collada Trevinca is one of the highest roads in the Galicia region and, with a vertical ascent of over 1,500m, it is an impressive climb by any standards. The climb is also sometimes called Fonte da Cova, which is the Galician name for the ascent.

In terms of cycling, its character is more typical of the León province than it is of Galicia. The scenery is pleasant, but is also quite barren and sparse at times. Overall, this is a nice climb for cycling as much for its challenge and altitude as the scenery. It is certainly one of the best ascents in the area, and more ambitious riders can do a long loop by linking the climb with Llano de las Ovejas.

Collada Trevinca is open throughout the year subject to the weather. Short term closures in winter are common due to snow, but the road is often quickly cleared to allow access to the ski area near the top of the climb. It is best ridden from May to October.
