Recovered with the help of la Vall residents, this path traditionally connected the village of Planoles, at an altitude of 1,150 m over the Rigat river, with Ribes de Freser, the commercial and administrative centre of Vall de Ribes. Over the years, Planoles has become a lively village that has integrated with nature and made it one of its main values.

We leave Roques Blanques where we find the RF16 crossroads, before crossing over the bridge we take the path on the right leading to les Casetes, with the Rigat river always as our point of reference. The path goes through woods and meadows with a few brooks, which we cross easily, until we reach the Pont de Ferro, which we cross next to one of the pylons to then reach les Casetes, where we will find the Pl4 crossroads.

We continue towards Planoles along a wide path until we reach the R151 Planoles – font de la Serra crossroads, which will take us to the end of the route, where we will find the signpost for R150 Planoles – camí de la Baronia. For the return journey we can follow the same route or join the basic network of roads and return via Ventolà and collada de Segura, which will take just over 3 hours.
