It is marked with a red cockerel and also has numerous informative signs that help us to interpret the nature and views.

This route starts at the entrance to the car park of the Canillo cable car at an altitude of 1,535 metres, in the village of Canillo, were we will find a large wooden sign with all of the indications. Following the marked route, we come to wooden bridge and tunnel and further on we will enjoy views of the Bordes del Vilar complex, the Romanesque church of Sant Joan de Caselles and the river Seig.

The path flattens out until les Bordes at 1,645m, and from here climbs again to les Marrades and the Tibetan bridge. We follow the route across a scree of the Grandvalira-El Tarter ski slopes (alt. 1,735). We drop down to the Collart bridge and climb again to el Palinqueró (alt. 1.805). This route ends at the CG-2 highway to the village of Soldeu, where we can catch a bus to go back to Canillo (leaving every hour on the hour), or walk back the way we came. This path runs alongside and frequently connects with the general highway (CG-2) which allows us to adapt the length of the walk to our preferences.

The route starts at the entrance to the Canillo cable car car park (42º 33' 57.204",1º 36' 1.3932").

For your safety, we recommend you do the routes at altitudes of over 1700 metres between the end of June and the end of September.
