Leave the mountain bike center of St. Gregori to the green area, and here we take the paved road to the right until you see the signs of the Llémena Path. Follow this path parallel to the river until the road that leads out to the historical neighborhood of St. Gregori. From the neighborhood follow the signs leading to the fountain Can Verdaguer and here take a path that connects to a track you must take on the left. Just 50 meters after follow a trail to the right that leads to a forest road that you must take to the right. After a few meters you come to a bifurcation and must turn left by a track that rises. Continue on this road until you reach the paved road of St. Afra leading to the sanctuary. To return, take the path that starts behind the sanctuary to a wider forest road you must follow on the left until the chapel of Fatima. From here follow a marked trail to the right that connects with a wider track you must take to the right to take back the paved road of Santa Afra. Continue on the path marked "Road Llémena" that brings you up the road to Can Verdaguer home and the historical neighborhood of St. Gregori. To return to the starting point we must turn left to the paved road and after a few feet we will take the road that goes up on the right and that leads to the old flour mill which now operates as a restaurant. We follow the parallel path to the creek Llémena until reaching a road junction. There we turn right and go straight down to reach the neighborhood of Argelaguet where we will find the asphalt. At this point we should go left to reach the starting point.
