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 trail could be made into a loop by using both GR-96 and GR-5. This route is slightly more steep, and goes directly up to the Montserrat summit, whereas GR-5 curves around the mountain a bit before reaching the summit.
