Level

Difficult

Due to the altitude, the paths may be covered with snow well into springtime. If this is the case, you’ll need to make sure you have the right equipment.

You’ll set off from in front of the Grau Roig information point, first of all taking a track, and then a forest path until reaching the first lake, Estany Primer. Here you’ll find the GR signposting, and you’ll follow the winding path between the lakes until almost reaching the summit.

With its gentle slopes, the lake section gives opportunities for a run up to the last of the lakes. From there, a steep slope will take you right up to the Coll de Pessons. From the top, a left turn leads you easily up to the summit, the Cim de Pessons.

You’ll retrace your steps back to the Coll de Pessons, and then make your way carefully down along the scree, until you come to the sign. At this point, you’ll leave the GR signage behind, and follow the yellow markers that’ll take you to the Estanys de la Solana, a group of lakes hidden away from the main trail that have a special charm all of their own. Back at Estany Primer, you’ll retrace your steps and arrive back at the point you started out from.

WATER. All services in Grau Roig. Lakes and streams all along the route.
