Pedraforca is one of the most famous and beautiful mountains in Catalonia, located in the Sierra del Cadí, within the Cadí-Moixeró Natural Park. This route is very popular among Catalan culture and is known as the forked mountain since its two peaks protrude like gallows. You will pass through a beautiful forest, cross a hill and climb a rocky section through the Collado del verdet. You can take good photos from the lower pollegó of Pedraforca. The views are fantastic and unforgettable. If you plan to hike or climb the steepest parts, a helmet is recommended.Show more

The climb to Pedraforca is a fairly high difficulty hiking option to one of the most popular and admired peaks in Catalonia. Pedraforca is recognized from afar for its particular shape with two very pronounced parallel rocky ridges. It is for this and for its landscape and environmental quality that the Pedraforca mountain is considered a Natural Site of National Interest. The Lluis Lasen Refuge is a perfect place to start practicing outdoor activities such as hiking, snowshoeing, mountaineering, hiking, mountain biking ...

It travels across the Spanish Pyrenees from Llança to Hondarribia. It crosses Spain from one side to the other, from the Mediterranean to the Atlantic or vice versa. It can be done by foot or bike (mountain bike with saddlebags) at a variety of paces and starting points, from east to west or west to east. The whole itinerary is quite well marked with white and red painted blazes and it has a good number of hostels and shelters along the way or you can wild camp. It goes along all types of terrain, mostly off-road, rugged and rocky in some areas. The views are breathtaking. The great adventure of the Pyrenees from east to west, on its southern slope, from the Mediterranean (Llança as starting point) to the Atlantic (and Hondarribia as the final point). Take as a reference guide "The crossing of the Pyrenees on BTT", by Jordi Laparra and published by Prames, following its main itinerary except to take the Ordesa-Sierra de Cutas variant. For the Cadí-Moixeró Natural Park, from the Llobregat Valley in the Berguedà to the Segre Valley in the Alt Urgell.

Already by the Alt Urgell, you will ascend the Coll d'Arnat, to finish descending to the Valley of the Segre. From Bagà, you will start to go up the Bastareny Valley by the Gisclareny road, which you leave to ascend the southern slopes of the Sierra del Cadí. After the hills of Bena and Bauma, you will reach Coll del Tor, the high point of the stage, over the deep Valle de Gresolet and facing the north wall of Pedraforca. Arriving at El Collel, the entrance door of the Alt Urgell, you will descend following the river of Josa to Tuixent, to cross the Valley of La Vansa, which you will leave when ascending the Coll d'Arnat.

An easy hike at the foothills of Pedraforca starting in the village od Saldes and finishing at the viewing platform Mirador de Gresolet. Follow the white and yellow signs from the village to the platform. The trail is fairly well marked but be careful of crossing routes and other diversions. Great for families with kids. The final view is well worth the effort!Show more
