We start at the bucolic village of Capafonts, located on a hill in the heart of the fertile plains of the Brugent river head. In this stage, you will walk to the Font de la Llúdriga (the otter spring), which is the source of the river Brugent. After climbing Els Motllats, you will go through the mountains which surround the head of the Brugent river, while experiencing some of the best viewpints in the Valley. Finally, you will reach the uninhabited hamlet of Els Cogullons, where the mountain hut sticks out.
