is one of the best on Mallorca. It leads to the second
highest mountain on Mallorca. The views are spectacular.
There are parking to be found
near the petrol station at Lluc. From here walk 200 metres back
towards Inca, until you get to a steel gate. Next to the gate there
is a square marking stone.
After 15 minutes walk the road is
dividing in 3. Make a sharp right turn here. Later onward you get to
an other gate, where you have to pay 4 Euros each (2006).
On you walk. At the next cross
road turn left. Now the road is narrowing to a track. Follow it 20
minutes, and you get to a wider road, where you turn left. There
are two natural stones with paint on. Marked Prat to the right and
Puig to the left.
Make a mental bookmark of this
point, so you do not overlook it on the way back.
Further up the road you get to 2
square stone markers. Turn right here.
Trek up through the stone oak
forest. Then you get to another stone marker. Here you can turn
right and get to the peak first, and then visit the well on the
return trip. Or otherwise. The road to the peak is most easy.
It is worth visiting the well
also. Most of these wells are closed with bars, but here you can
walk down and se for yourself water coming out of the rock in more
than 1000 m above sea level.
The walk to Massanella is
considered difficult. The track is for a long distance covered with
rocks and stones. You are also exposed to weather. Caution and
preparation is needed.
