We leave the village at the Itinerànnia AE43 Darnius crossroads and head towards the Vajol. The flat traill that leads to the grasslands where the Mas de les Planes is located. The terrain starts with fields that gradually transition into oak woods. Walk along the Ricardell and continue along the trail that gradually leads away from the river, we find the AE44 la Ribera junction and continue in the direction of Darnius (via the Serrat del Sentinella) to crossing the old La Vajol trail. The trail intersects the GI-503, and shortly after we found AE45 Sant Esteve del Llop a slight detour will lead to Sant Esteve del Llop, we go towards Maçanet de Cabrenys. There are 300m more or less, we return by the same path. On the road at the AE45 junction, we take Darnius (pel Serrat del Sentinella) direction, the path climbs towards the Serrat del Sentinella and crosses it along a well-marked path. Before reaching the Sentinella Serrat viewpoint, take a small detour to the La Tortuga viewpoint. We pick up the yellow marks and find the AE42 junction Serrat del Sentinella, we go towards Darnius and after a few meters we find the viewpoint.The final stretch leads back down to the village, passing through Camp de la Mina.
