Cabin and beech path in Setcases

Cabin and beech path in Setcases

This circular itinerary takes us steeply uphill in the Cabañas sector, where in addition to the agroforestry mosaic and old paths flanked by stone walls and grass meadows surrounded by naturalized hazelnut fences, we will enjoy extensive views of the mountains and mountain ranges of the valley, with the town of Setcases just below.

Past the Wolf's neck, the landscape changes radically and we enter a thicket of pine trees and deciduous forest dotted with fir trees.

Once down, crossed the Ter river, we will return to your side along the road, crossing grass fields and riverside forests until we reach the town.


The itinerary can be done in both directions. We propose to start it by leaving the town on the side of the Sant Miquel church, all going up a cart path that passes us next to the Planàs cabins and in abundance and close to others such as the Fuster, Ras or Llabaig cabins. The land through which this first part of the itinerary passes, known as the Cabanes, was formerly used as cultivation fields by the residents of Setcases. The harvesting meadows were, long ago, fields of potato cultivation as we still find in the Planàs cabin.

The path, in the shade of hazelnut, ash and poplar, despite being a constant climb is pleasant if we do it quietly. An alternation of small meadows surrounded by deciduous trees such as hazelnut occurs, with moors and forest areas near the holes. Nice print in the fall.

r312_cabana Near the cabin we will enjoy wide views: the town of Setcases and, above, the Mount of Las Agudas and the ridge towards the Collada Verde, under the Costabona; towards Camprodon, we can also admire the Sierra de los Moros above Tregurà. The flowering of the meadows before mowing is abundant, and insects and birds from open spaces make it a very lively place.

The itinerary goes to the Cuello del Lobo overlooking the 2714 m summit of the Buckwheat Grain. Here we pass the sunny side of a cattle ranch modified by man on a shady hill known as La Fageda. It is a black pine pine forest in the upper part, which is dotted with fir trees until it almost touches the river. The fairly clean understory is filled with blueberries and rhododendron spots. We go down a forest track where red pine and deciduous trees such as birches, gatsaules and rowan trees are gaining place alongside fir trees.

Finally, the track ends, once crossed the Ter, on the Ulldeter road, approximately a couple of kilometers from the town of Setcases. Going down the road (very carefully), we will have a good perspective of the shadow where we have come down. We will continue along the river where the harvest fields have been reducing the riverside forest where willows, twill, alder and some poplars are still present.
