Route description

Somewhat challenging itinerary due to the technical descent halfway through.

It coincides with Route 6 up to km 4. Set off from the Es Bòrdes church in the direction of Artiga de Lin. After some 600 metres, cross the Còc bridge and head up the dirt track towards the leafy spruce forest called Sapertega. Just before km 4, take the track on the left and keep going until past km 8.

Signposts mark out where to take the steep downhill footpath, which gradually levels out after a while, arriving at an almost abandoned track that joins up again with Route 6 at km 11.3. Continue downhill to Pont d’Arròs and then climb up to the right onto the Camin Reiau until Es Bordes.

This unspoilt and seldom visited trail makes you feel completely in the midst of nature. Careful at the highest point, where you’ll have to look out for the start of the downhill footpath. If in doubt, you may have to check your GPS.

The descent is very appealing if you like fast and technical stretches.

Asphalt: 4%, Gravel 87%, Trail 2%
