Camins del Cadí

Camins del Cadí is a hiking route that mostly passes through Cadí-Moixeró Natural Park, a protected area with a great natural and cultural value, which can be explored on foot thanks to its good trail network. The starting point is in La Cerdanya, at the spectacular north face of Cadí. Along the route, we pass to the southern slope through the Gosolans pass towards Berguedà. This pass is the old path that connected the two counties in the past, which leads us to the imposing Pedraforca Massif. The final part of the route takes us to the Alt Urgell plain: a green area, rich in crops, bathed by the Segre River and surrounded by mountains.
