Then heads west levelling out until the short but impressive zigzag up the Passet de Golers. Here there is a rocky lookout which makes an ideal lunch stop. Another steep climb to reach the peaceful Arc Valley and the Paso Contador with spectacular views. From here it is downhill (steeply in places) all the way back to the previously spotted car, which will be used to ferry drivers up the hill to the Casa de Dios. Although this walk can be easily walked as a complete circuit we shorten it, whenever possible, by spotting a car which avoids an uphill walk on a surfaced road. 57% Paths, 43% TracksNo dogshttp://tinyurl.com/lp6oyu4
