Leaving from Pla de l'Ermita, at the beginning, the route follows the road toward the ski resort of Boí-Taüll, and after 3 km, it takes the old trail that leads to the entrance of the resort. From there, it advances inside the resort on a dirt trail that climbs to the observation point of Cap de Vaques (elevation 2.310 m). From that moment, with some privileged views, begins a steep and technical descent which is mostly done off-road, among meadows. In la Collada de la Llobarçana it connects with the trail that acts as a dividing line between the mountain of Durro and Taüll. When it ends, a steep and technical descent begins, among meadows and off-road, that leads to the road of the ski resort. Following it, we again reach the Pla de l'Ermita.

 

Caution, this route is very demanding, physically and technically, with stretches where is no road. For experienced bikers used to pedalling off-road.

Until very late spring, there is usually snow on the route

The old trail to the ski resort runs partially through the peripheral zone of protection of the National Park of Aigüestortes i Estany de Sant Maurici.
