Route summary

The Camí del Gall is a linear route linking Soldeu to Canillo, both towns in the parish of Canillo. This means you can do it in either direction, starting in either town.  It covers a distance of 6.8 km (the return journey is along the same route, thus doubling the distance). It is classified as difficult, like numerous MTB routes in Andorra, mainly because of the steep climbs and descents along the way. The starting and finishing altitudes are 1,805 m (Soldeu) and 1,530 m (Canillo) above sea level, although the climb is 520 m from the lowest to the highest points. If you choose Soldeu as your starting point, the route begins next to the horse-riding club. The exact GPS coordinates are: 42° 34' 34",1° 39' 46". If you start at Canillo, the starting point is the gondola lift  (coordinates 42° 33' 56",1° 36' 6").

The Camí del Gall crosses a sector of the Grandvalira ski resort, which is turned into a spectacular Bike Park in summer, specialising in freeride and downhill. Among the sights on the route are an old restored iron bridge and numerous panoramic views, some of them with information panels, as the route can also be done on foot.
