The Canya de la Rabassa - Pla de Sorteny - Planell del Quer circuit gives a peaceful stroll in high mountain scenery. The route is nearly 4.5 Km. long and starts at the entrance hut to the Sorteny Nature Park. From here we will follow the Grau de la Llosa path, where we find a botanical garden with 300 species of plants. We carry on around 400m until we reach a junction, where we will take the GRP towards the Pla de Sorteny (where there is the Borda de Sorteny mountain hut).

We carry on north-west towards the Planell del Quer (indicated by signpost) and the path to Rialb (here we take the path to the left). The path continues through the forest to the Canya de La Rabassa picnic place.

The route starts at the Sorteny nature park entrance hut, point 42° 37' 32",1° 33' 6".

For your safety, we recommend you do the routes at altitudes of over 1,700 metres between the end of June and the end of September. However, if the weather and terrain conditions allow it, the season may extend from May to October.
