It starts at the public car park in Peralada, it borders the village and it continues along a road surrounded by vineyards which leads to Mollet de Peralada. It then travels along a paved road till Masarac where the most difficult part of the route starts as it winds its way up to Serra d'Altrera. From Serra d'Altrera we can enjoy from a beautiful view over the plain and the Albera mountains. It passes through Vilarnadal and it then runs parallel to the road from Vilarnadal and Cabanes. Just in case this path is impassable, we can use the alternative route following the road until it reaches the GIV-6024 leading to Cabanes. It passes through Cabanes and it follows the path which leaves the village by the east leading to the starting point in Peralada.
