There is a second station (F.E.V.E not R.E.N.F.E) that has a regular service to the valleys and small mountain range to the north of León. There are probably many serious walks you could do. We got off at Vecilla and there isn't much to it...two restaurants, a shop next to the station, a bar, campsite and a small artgallery/local centre. We came across a swimming pool carved from the banks of the river and this is where one trail begins. This area is famous amongst trout fisherman, not just for the crystal clear waters but also for the feathers from a particular breed of cockrels (prepare for constant crowing!) used in flytying.
