The ascent to Pagasarri Bilbao is an activity quite frequently, hence the Pagasarri road is well documented.
The following describes the ascent route to the mountain, with photographs to facilitate orientation:
The route starts in the San Adrián (Bilbao). We start from the Plaza Zabalburu, located near the train station and we are on the street Avenida Juan de Garay and San Adrian. At the end of the street we find the bridge from the image below:
Way up to Pagasarri: Building Iberdrola
Crossing over the bridge cross the highway, reaching Iberdrola building. At this point we leave the city to begin the ascent to Pagasarri. Go around the building to the right to take the road Larraskitu, a paved trail that runs through the neighborhood Larraskitu.

Continue about 300 meters down the track. We find a path that goes left. If we take this shortcut will we end up at the same track much later, while ensuring more spin. This step is optional, if we follow the track all the time we'll end up at the same point but take more.

Continuing along the road, called Camino Pagasarri, we will come to the Athletic and Bar later with a picnic area and tables, along with a panel of the council with a map and information about the area.

If we continue down the road, we arrive at a point where a barrier prevents access to vehicles. It is the point where it begins the ascent to Mount and in which, typically, we will have taken about 45 minutes to get there. Highlight a road that goes to the left, just before the barrier, and that leads to the chapel of San Roque.

Later we came to a crossroads offers three routes to Pagasarri. The right path is the softest and offers spectacular views of Bilbao. The central route, begins with stairs and an information panel. Of the three routes, is the fastest (about 30 minutes) and the oldest, but also the most physically demanding. The left path instead is the longest and gives the greatest return, so it is the least they usually do.
