Begin the route in front of the Canillo Tourist Office and cross the Valira d’Orient river in the same village. Go alongside for the first kilometre until reaching a hotel, where, from the car park,  you’ll be able to seethe path on your right, which starts off quite steep. Look for a sign that will indicate the path to follow, towards “Refugi Riba Escorxada”, and continue climbing without stopping until you see a crossroads with a sign indicating “Canillo”, at an elevation of 2000 m. Here, turn right and begin a level stretch through the woods that’s very easy to do, which will take you to El Forn after a short stretch of forest track.

You will be guided by the ski lifts and the lake, which you will circle by walking through the games area, and then you’ll begin the rapid descent via forest track for the first few metres. Next, turn right onto the access road for this winter resort area.

Once on the road, turn left, around 200 m, until finding a wide track to the left, which will easily take you to the first houses of the village of Prats, where you will find a fountain. At this point, continue along the road almost continuously until reaching Canillo, just over a kilometre in descent, to return to the starting point.
