Summary

This is a challenging circuit that will bring you straight to the summit through the shortest way.

Starting from the Tourist office, move towards the Sports Centre. Behind that building, you will start the steep ascent. Keep following the uphill path until you come across a fountain.

Continue by the path on the left of the fountain and follow the yellow markers that will guide you along the rest of the continuous ascent. In the last stretch, you might need to use your hands to keep climbing.

After a short flatter section, you will get to the antennas that are placed in Bony de Neres summit.

You can come back to Encamp retracing your steps along the way followed during the ascent. An alternative way would be heading to Coll de Ordino and, from there, following the GR track (long-distance trail) that will take you back to Encamp.

Summary

This is a demanding trail that, in some stretches, will count with ropes that can be used as handrails for extra support. The Funicamp evacuation route will be followed along the whole circuit.

Starting from the Tourist office, walk through the streets that are already on uphill until you find a path, just beside the ravine.

The path is a continuous upward slope, with some challenging sections. The ravine will be crossed a few times, always by wooden bridges. During the first 3 kilometers, you will have ascend around 700 meters height. After that, you will find the ropes that will help you to continue, finding two short descents in this stretch.

The path will become flatter and with good going terrain during the very last part of this route, which will finish at the intermediate station of Funicamp.

WATER: All needed water facilities are available in Encamp. There are some streams along the circuit.

TOURISM: Encamp.
