A route mainly over wide tracks on which we discover the Cortals d'Encamp area, just where the paved road CS-220 ends, at the Funicamp intermediate station. We can also reach the LLac de Pessons, an idyllic and peaceful place.

At the beginning, the route runs along the Funicamp line, on a winding track with a steep uphill gradient. At the end of this first 2.5-km section, we reach Enradort ridge, turn left to Solanelles service area some 200 m further up at 2,500 m (open during the summer season).

Once we have reached this point, already in the Grandvalira ski slope area, we descend along the jeep track, heading to the lower Cubil lake. From here, a gentler climb takes us to the Grau Roig area, and we leave the Pic Cubil to our right at all times. By crossing the ski slopes perpendicularly (they can be easily spotted by the lines of artificial-snow cannons), we come across the track that ascends from the Grau Roig. There will be only one last 200-m long effort to reach Llac de Pessons, where we can enjoy magnificent views and boundless peace of mind.

We return along the same route, or by following the GPS track, which follows the GR tour in some sections, with narrower and more technically demanding trails.

Note: Optionally, we can descend to the Grau Roig area and return along the same track. Non-cycling companions can reach Llac de Pessons by the bus service from Grau Roig; they might also take the Funicamp to Solanelles.
