Map of Route
This is a route which is very steep. If one wishes to make this excursion gentler one is recommended to make it in the opposite direction becoming an almost totally downhill path. So one is recommended to approach the Des Noguer Fountain on the Sóller-Lluc bus line. The Es Cornadors variant may make this trek an hour and a half longer.
The old washing places of Biniaraix a village near Sóller and which one will access by way of S’Alqueria des Compte is the point of departure or arrival (depending if one decides to take the bus to the Cuber water reservoir and walk down). It is there that the Monnáber road commences (on the left) and the Es Barranc path on the right. One starts off via a cart track which amongst olive groves gradually becomes a bridle path until crossing for the first time the stream of l’Ofre or of Des Barranc. From here one start to enter its marvellous, spectacular surroundings where one leaves behind on the right the old Es Barranc path where one can get refreshments (one can also do so slightly further up at the Fountain of Es Verger).
One arrives at the enclave of S’Estret where the rocky slopes come closer until just leaving a small pass where stream and path meet. One again crosses this stream via a stone bridge and one continues the ascent amongst olive groves.
The path is still winding leaving behind a wooden bridge and several estates. After a short break the path again begins to ascend on numerous bends and again meets up with the old path.
One leaves behind places such as the great stalactite of Sa Campana or the caves of D’en Mena and the waterfall of Es Cans and the route again becomes flatter until entering the l’Ofre estate via a wall. One is now on the way to Coll del l’Ofre. On bright days from this pass the view is unique. One keep going down via the bridle path on the left which after passing the nearby houses of Binimorat takes you smoothly to the dam of the spectacular Cúber reservoir, After going round this lake like area on the right in the vicinity of the fountain of Es Noguer there is a wonderful recreational area.
There is also the possibility of making an interesting variant to this excursion by going up to the vantage point of Es Cornadors alongside the former shelter of Xim Quesada. The views afforded of Sóller from this spot are simply exceptional.
