The road is mostly unpaved. The start and end sections are on sealed roads but there is 20 odd km of rough-stuff. In general it is good to use, although in some places it is slightly broken by the erosion of the water and the wind. The road does get busier at weekends and in the main holiday season. The track is 28.9 km long and links the villages of Ribes de Freser and Tregurà de Dalt.

Recommended from late spring to early fall, since you´ll go through mountain roads where there is often snow. Recommended using a SUV or all-road (no need for all-wheel drive). Along the way you can enjoy a high mountain environment typical of the Pyrenees area. Expect some gravel veering into stones/rocks sections. It suffers the harsh meteorological conditions of the area every winter. Drive with care as this is a mountain road with dropoffs. It’s a beautiful drive with amazing views. The drive tops out at 2.059m (6,755ft) above the sea level.
