It's a linear route that starts at the Funicamp top station at a height of 2,502 metres. It has a 70-metre elevation gain and is 10 km long. This is the easier way of making the descent from Solanelles to Encamp, although it's still a demanding one, and is recommended for expert cyclists, given the nature of the terrain and the characteristics of the paths.

Your descent starts on the Funicamp beginners' slope, a 3-m wide track, parts of which are very steep.

To reach the Funicamp halfway station, cross the river via the suspension bridge to the shepherds' huts in the Orris area. A stone path takes you to the paved road, which you'll leave straight away, turning left towards the twisting, turning bends in the Feritxet area. Next, follow a path that will bring you close to the Pardines car park. When you reach the end of the track, you'll find the turn-off for the Camí de la Plana on the right. Take great care at the bottom of the path as water and the spring thaw have caused a lot of damage. Finally you'll come to the end of the route, at the Funicamp base station.

The descent takes about an hour. Suitable for all-mountain and enduro bikes.
