Estels del Sud, etapa 4: Refugi Font Ferrera - Nou Refugi Caro
We leave the refuge following the GR (which we shall not stray from all day) through magnificent pine tree forests. At first we go along tracks, and then we take a path that passes the Font de la Pileta and below the Negrell mountain.
We then retake the Vallcaneres trail, branching off in the direction of Casetes Velles, passing the Refugi del Mas del Fraile.
From Casetes Velles we continue along the trail for quite a distance, passing the Font de la Langosta and heading towards La Cova del Vidre [The Glass Cave], a magnificent formation excavated inside a cliff.
After passing below the summit of the Marturi mountain, we arrive at the Coll de Pajares, from where we descend to meet the trail on the Coll de la Carrasqueta. We follow the GR 7 along a tarmac path, passing through the Els Ports residential development and then, on our right hand side, the Restaurant del Port and 80m to the right, the Caro Refuge, which is level with the path (Star indicator).
