Climb Description

Puerto de La Sía from Espinosa is quite a short climb to the border between the provinces of Cantabria and Burgos. It is a pleasant climb through green scenery which loosely follows the course of the Sía River.

The Puerto de la Sía does close at times during winter due to snow; although the closures tend to be sporadic rather than long term.
