The meeting point with the guide and also the start and end point of the route will be the Tourist Office of Maçanet de Cabrenys.
You will cross oaks and beech fields as well as farms and rural houses.
Just before heading back to the start point, when you reach les Salines caves you will be able to link, later, with GR-10 (a French Long-Distance Trail, the continuation of the Spanish GR-11), though you will have to cross the border to do so.
