The trailhead is tricky to find. There might not be parking at the trailhead, most visitors take the train or bus to the area and then walk to the trailhead. Visitors with cars could probably park in town and walk to the trailhead. This route starts on GR-5 eventually reaching the top of Montserrat. The way down is on GR-96, which is slightly steeper, and goes more directly down the mountain. GR-5 is more of a curve around the mountain as it gains altitude. This loop could also be done counter-clockwise, starting on GR-96.
