Cap de Vaques

Cap de Vaques: a dirt trail to the summit

Cap de Vaques is a high mountain peak at an elevation of 2.312m (7,585ft) above the sea level, located in the heart of the Pyrenees, in the province of Lleida and autonomous community of Catalonia, Spain. It's one of the highest roads of the country.

Nestled in a setting of exceptional natural and cultural richness deep in the Vall de Boí of the Catalonian Pyrenees mountains, in the Boi-Taüll ski resort, the road to the summit is an unpaved chairlift access trail with a few narrow and steep sections (up to 25%). The summit offers impressive views. 4x4 vehicles with high clearance only. Located within the Aigüestortes i Estany de Sant Maurici Natural Park, the road to the summit is largely limited to the summer season. Until very late spring, there is usually snow on the route.
