Route which covers two areas on the outskirts of Falset: Els Masos and Les Obagues, where there is a shooting range. 

This is a short route, which unfortunately is partly by main road. Els Masos is an area with great views over the Priorat and some great downhills towards the Serra de les Obagues which takes us through lovely woodland. The tracks are generally stony, especially around els Masos where there are loose stones.
