Itinerary

Plaza de Espanya in Fornalutx is the point of departure. One take the steps on the Calle de la Iglesia which further up becomes Calle Tramuntana and one heads on between notable buildings such as Can Xandre, Can Maiol and, already on the way out of the town Ca Ses Escolanes with Interesting details of painted tiles.

Calle de Tramuntana known as calle del Monte gives way to a very elaborate cobbled path. Between terraces of olive groves and orange trees one heads on getting a better view of Penya des Migdia or the Marroig area. One crosses the road and follows the indications of wooden signs. A small stretch fit for vehicles again gives away to the firm cobbled path (on the left) always flanked by olive groves. At ones feet the town of Fornalutx becomes visible. Slightly further away yone can make out Coll de Sóller and the Alfábia mountain range.

One continues the long ascent along a path set between two walls which separate you from the olive groves and where the pines begin to become more common. In this way one arrives at the Puig Major road (km 42,950) and on the right one goes on for around a hundred paces until locating a wooden pass for day-trippers in the shade of two gigantic pines. Now the path goes between oak woods and begins to lose definition until reaching an old threshing floor for the coal silo from where a cart track gently ascends which has to be followed between pine trees, holm oaks and wild olives and one is already within Sa Comuna.

One leaves behind a tank intended for the fight against forest fires and one reaches a crossroads. One must ignore the path which would take you to the plain of Sa Bassa on the right and follow that on the left going round a small vaulted well. Next one comes across a kind of pass with some amazing views over the Sóller valley.

From here a long descent is started via a dense oak wood rife with bends and which after crossing a metallic wrought iron gate leaves on the Puig Major road. One descends this for around 150 m until reaching a green wall on the left which one must flank round on the right. One leaves the asphalted path to follow the old one, cobbled on certain stretches, now following a steep river bed. This path leaves you again on the asphalted path which one follows until locating a small olive grove shed from where one goes straight on to the bank of the stream. After passing a fence the broad path ends and one crosses the stream which descends, always to the right, reaching the area known as Ses Fonts. Here one again leaves the asphalted path to follow the course of the stream on the left. Next one retakes the road which goes down to Fornalutx meeting the S’Alcina Fumadora path on which one started the route.
