This is a long section, but without steep inclines. The fork leading to Logroño heads for 3 and a half kilometres towards the park of la Grajera, a green recreational area by the old dam of La Grajera. After 8 kilometres, walkers have to ascend and then descend towards Navarrete, famous for its traditional pottery and the ruins of the pilgrim hospital of San Juan de Acre.
The route continues towards the detour of Sotés, where the path runs parallel to the A12 motorway for a couple of kilometres. At that point, having covered 18 kilometres, one can choose between continuing straight ahead or visiting the village of Ventosa. The peak of San Antón offers views of the valley before embarking on the last section of the day towards Nájera, a descent that is not precipitous, but nevertheless takes 2 hours. A visit to the monastery and church of Santa María la Real is highly recommended.
