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 on the right that leads to a forest road that you must take on the left. Continue along this road until you reach the hermitage of Sant Grau and the Castle Tudela. The views from the top of the hill are exceptional. Start the return following a path down the east side of the chapel, and a section below, it leads to a wide track you will take down ahead until you arrive at the house Can Verdaguer. From here follow the trail down to 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 to the left to reach the starting point.
