Itinerary that rediscovers the royal path from Ribes de Freser to Ogassa crossing Bruguera (1 200 m above sea level), a small village nested in the sunny and western side of Taga. The route reaches the highest summit of Serra Cavallera, Taga, which with its 2 040 m above sea level is a wonderful balcony to enjoy the views of Eastern Pyrenees, Cadí-Moixeró and Serra de Montgrony. Please remember to keep your pets leashed at all times as this is a pasture area.

Linear route that starts in the centre of Bruguera R135. This small village is formed by a group of farms and old village houses around the church of Sant Feliu and along the path to the forestry road of coll de Jou. From this point, the estimated time to arrive to the Taga summit is about 3 hours.


Go up progressively until elevation 1 300 by following the yellow signs that lead to the car park of torrent de la Corba ravine. Here, on your left, there is the path that goes through the Serrat de l’Home. It catches up to the meadows of coll de Pan and gets into the forest again to finally arrive at coll de Jou R134 after a two-hours walk. In this sign, leave the Itinnerània path to climb to the summit. After the sheep track, turn left.

Always leaving the electrical fence on your left, and following the yellow signs, arrive at the small shelf of Cabanes plain from where you can see the Taga Cross. Follow the outlined path to get the top of the mountain one hour later.

Go back down by the same way.

There is the possibility to connect with the Ribes-Taga Route. Just follow the signs and come down to Ribes de Freser.
