It is a circular geological route. This will be carried out in its entirety by the municipal district of Navàs. It will be from Sant Cugat del Racó to the old municipal head, the town of Castelladral. Finally, it will be returned to the starting point of the route, in Sant Cugat del Racó. Throughout the route there will be found outcrops of cenozoic materials that rebuild the Geological Depression of L'Ebre, where it places the Geopark of Central Catalonia.

Millions of years ago, in the geographical heart of Catalonia, there was a sea that disappeared pushed by the rise of mountain ranges like the Pyrenees. The geological processes have left a territory with spectacular rock formations such as Montserrat and rich natural resources such as salt, plaster or lime.
