This trail passes through an area of outstanding natural beauty, between Bordes de Setúria and Port de Cabús. Pic dels Llacs is the peak that crowns Setúria Valley, whose immense pastures provide an important grazing area for many herds of sheep. The mountain reaches a height of 2,666 metres and is also known as Pic de la Bassera. If you hike this trail in early June, the grass will be covered with lady of the snows (Pulsatilla vernalis): these attractive flowers have a white interior and purple-tinged exterior, and have developed a furry coating in order to adapt to the mountain climate.

The first section of the trail will take you up to the first summit: Pic de Setúria (2,517 metres), which boasts magnificent views. On the way up you will cross another trail, which approaches from the left and originates in Bordes de Setúria.

To the north, you will have splendid views of the peaks of Sanfonts, Roca Entravessada and Comapedrosa, while over to the left are the peaks of Vallpeguera, Ascorbes and, in the distance, Monteixo. A little further on, the terrain becomes steeper and the ascent more demanding until you reach the summit of Pic dels Llacs, where there is a large stone cairn and a metal marker indicating the highest point of the excursion.
