Summary

This circuit is suitable for families all year round. We recomend not doing it at midday in summer as there is very little shade. There is no drinking water to be found in the way but in the village there are several fountains where we can stock up for the descent. The circuit goes down the “Camí de la Ferradura”  (blacksmiths way) wide has traditionally joined these two villages of the Vall d’Assua mainly for the post and casttle running.

The trail is ideal for enjoying the tranquility of contry life and its worth a visit to centre of Surp to see the churches of Saint Iscles and Saint Victoria. From Surp there are good views of the villages in the valley Noguera Pallaresa and the centres of Beraní and Roní situated in the shadow of Mount d’Orri.

Leaving Rialp the trail quickly climbs up the old quaters arriving at the ruins of Rialps casttle. We soon rejoin the “Blacksmiths way” that will take us without stopping to Surp, always keeping within the borders and cultivated fields.

Summary

Circuit available all year round, just being careful in winter with the frozen patches beside the river and the fountain. In this familiar circuit of Colinos we can enjoy a trail along shady paths and also a fresh water fountain.

In Sant Joan de Colinos there is a shady and well equiped picnic area. Leaving the centre of Rialp we cross the village and Santa Caterinas bridge to begin the trail  paral·lel to the river. Shortly we leave the route to Canerilla (first route on this page), and then the path begins to climb consistently upwards zigzaging with we reach the Sant Joan de Colinos recreation area. There we can relish the calmness of the surrounding resting in the shade. There are 8 tables, all in the shade and a fountain very close.

We can either go back the same way way or follow the trail  that starts in front  of the recreational area that leads to the village of Berani (in the second option we would have to picked up by car).
