Level

Distance

20 km

The summit ridge section is fairly exposed to the wind; always bring warm clothing.

Start out at the Encamp Tourist Office, heading towards the Estació del Funicamp. Cross the road, and you’ll quickly get onto a path that rises steeply up to the Bordes de Rigoder traditional stone cottages, where the going gets easier, and on to the climbing wall area and the suspension bridge.

Cross the bridge and you’ll soon begin the second steep ascent on this route, along a well-marked path to a rocky area, and then over a grassy knoll to the left which will take you up to the ridge.

Follow the markers along the wide ridge, through the meadows and then along a final rocky stretch.

When you reach the top, you’ll descend quickly until you get to the Collada d’Entinyola, where you’ll see a large marker. Turning left, you’ll come to a grassy knoll, after passing by the Etinyola lakes.

From the shelter, following a very well-marked path, you’ll reach the Carretera dels Cortals. Cross this road, and then pick up the path again; it now falls steeply to bring you to Les Pardines, and then back to your starting point.

Water: All services in Encamp. Fountain at the Ensagents Shelter. Fountain at Les Pardines. Streams where you can cool down at the Els Cortals and Ensagents lakes.
