Outing with snowshoes in the Pedró dels Quatre Batlles

This route to the Pedró dels Quatre Batlles (‘the Stone of the Four Majors’) is located in the area of Solsona (the pre-Pyrenees). It starts in the car park of Estivella of the ski resort of Port del Compte, at 1,935 metres. We will take the path to the Pedró dels Quatre Batlles (2,386 m), where the first ascent will warm us up. Then, we will continue progressively, making different stops to learn a little of the history of the place and its flora and fauna. We will reach the top of the Pedró dels Quatre Batlles, the highest peak of the region, where we will enjoy the wonderful views of the Pre-Pyrenees and the Pyrenees. After enjoying the views of the mountain chain of Port del Compte (“the Earl’s Mountain Pass”), we will be heading to Tossa Pelada (2,379 m). After reaching this top, we will leave to Forat de la Bòfia (“Bòfia Hole”) (2,048 m), to make a circular route where, after a while, we will get to the car park where we had left our vehicles.
