This route starts in Falset and follows on towards Mola de Colldejou mountain and the Llaberia mountain range. There are steep climbs, especially towards the Coll del Guix, where the terrain also makes progress through the wooded areas difficult.  There are some parts on the descent towards the village of La Torre de Fontaubella, where we must dismount. 

In general, the terrain is good, with the exception of some loose stones in the case of the path which leads to the village of  La Torre de Fontaubella. This village is also worth a visit.
