Up

Distance: 11 Km.Up/Downhill 780 m. - Up/Downhill 670 m.Time: 03:30 h.
Siurana - Refugio de L´Albarca

To get to Siurana, we have to get to Tarragona from here & iacute; heading to Reus. Once past this population & oacute; n take the road that goes to Falset and before taking the std & iacute; or Cornuella. Past Cornuella take the OFFSET & oacute; Siurana.

Certainly, Siurana, located 700 meters above sea level, is one of the villages m & aacute; s beautiful in the province of Tarragona. It is located on a pe & ntilde; disgust limestone, raised on the land surrounding it with splendid views over the golf Tarragona and Siurana. In 1961 it was declared a place.

Right on the edge of town, in front of a LITTLE to store products t & iacute; peaks in the area, get a paved road, marked with blue arrows, & nbsp; which falls r & aacute; quickly. AFTER & eacute; s of a few corners left the paved road, following the blue marks, and take a path on the left

.

kil & oacute; metro, we encontramos with the first crops and cross a track. & nbsp;'ll cross a few minutes

1.5 km. we are located at 490 meters altitude and began to climb a small & ntilde; or & repech oacute; n of about 100 meters of altitude. From here & iacute; & nbsp; started down to the dam of Siurana (465 m.); we find a crossing track and if there is no water in the swamp we can spare us the curve of the track and cross skirting directly inside.

Follow the track until Cornudella (530 m.). About two hours of walking and about 4 kil & oacute; m & entered this population oacute; n

.

Once at the church we take the road that goes to the right, opposite the church address & oacute; na pools. Where the asphalt ends we are & ntilde; ales. & Nbsp; we followed GR 174

We came to an intersection and let the dev & iacute; or Sant Joan to our right and follow the GR of higErda. At the next junction, continue straight on the GR that lead us & aacute; n. To Sant Joan de Codolar (. 760 m) to about 7 km trek

.

From the grill, located just behind & aacute; s the main building, we lined up a steep trail following the blue and yellow markings that are directed toward the crest of the Serra Major

.

We headed & quot; Els Tres Esgraons & quot ;. Three crossing points on the rock calc & aacute; rea to save a steep slope

.

At 20 min. arrived at the first of three steps located 900 m. Ten minutes m & aacute; s and we will be in the second & nbsp; Climbers & oacute; n & aacute m; s dif & iacute; cil as above. And in 15 minutes m & aacute; s get to the third and m & aacute; s & iacute dif; cult of the three. These three steps are not dif & iacute; but require a strong cult grimpada aided by steps and handholds in stone enabled

.

But we are looking to have these three steps, therean alternative is to take the GR 174 from Sant Joan to take us & aacute; to Albarca.

Once past the three steps, continue ascending along a path that lead us & aacute; the dimension m & aacute; XIMA of this day (1,145 m and about 8 Km walk..)

.

At this point we must pay close attention & oacute; n: on our left the Rock Corbatera and & nbsp; turn 90 degrees to the right to take a path along the right Punta Serra Major.

We take the street from the shelter and began to descend. Cross the road and continue down the track until the Terap Center & eacute;. Utico Mas Lluc (. 670 m) to 2 km and 40 minutes. But left the right, without leaving the track, and continue down to 625 meters, from that point we began to ascend until we joined a track, at 4 km. and 1 hr, we take on the left.

We crossed the r & iacute; o and start climbing the way of Els Gorgs and blue and yellow markings. We follow the course of the R & iacute; o for about 1 h, sometimes very close to the runway and sometimes by more elevated paths

.

Finally we join the GR 7-720 meters and 16 km. We follow the GR to hit the road. At this point we must pay close attention & oacute; n to not skip the std & iacute; o: the second poster arrived Mas dels Fraris the GR exits right at the height of this is & ntilde;. to

Refugio de La Mussara - Mont-Ral - Refugio de La Mussara

This step is really hard: continuous up-down that will eventually destroy the legs

.

We take the road we arrived at the shelter and at the junction on the right throw. A few meters take the GR 172 leaving a trail to the left of the road.

Soon we join the GR 7-1050 m, also & eacute; s blue and yellow markings, we take on the right. This track is planning to coordinate.

We continue in cote up to the Portell de la Cova of Bruja, from where we can see Serralada Montserrat.

At this point you should pay attention & oacute; n to not stray from the path, and that at one point turns around 180 degrees and turns backwards & aacute; s in search of Serrets dels Avencs, which will border until the Foradada (6.50 Km.), a step in the rock that allow us & aacute; cross the Serrets dels Avencs and start very gently down to Mont-ral (8.50 miles and about 3 hours of hiking -. 850 m.), people with shelter and 2 bars on the road

.

From Mont-ral began to descend on the GR that are right on the edge of town. A few meters we left to follow PRC-20 brands that bring us & aacute; to the road, where we turn left to return to turn right at the first dev & iacute; o. Soon we will see blue and yellow markings that indicate the dev & iacute; oalto right we have to make it still matches the PRC-20.

This fall, we should pay much attention & oacute; ny follow this PR until shortly before crossing the r & iacute; o de la Glorieta (10 m - 630 m - 3:30 pm..). Already AFTER & eacute; s crossing the r & iacute; o marks are blue and started to climb up to go out to a track -
