You will then leave Fondo and climb towards the Plans de l’Arboç where you will turn right towards the La Planota. Continuing towards La Mirona, you will pass by the Font del Cinto. Take caution at this point as the ground it tends to be quite muddy due to the spring! You will continue towards the Vall dels Cortals, cross it and following a path that will take you to the pipeline. There you will take a path towards Les Carreteres hill (587.3 m) and follow the path until you reach Camí de les Carreteres.
