How to get there: Drive on the A-138 to Bielsa and turn between the kilometer posts K80 and K81 on a narrow asphalt road signposted to "Parador de Monte Perdido" and "Valle de Pineta". Continue 14 km along this road number A-2611 until you see a large parking place on your left. (Roadmap)

Distance: 2h30min/8.5km

At the end of the parking place you see a number of signs and an information panel (1275 m). Take the track that starts from this spot. A chain closes the track from traffic after you have walked a couple of minutes. The track keeps ascending in the shade of tall trees towards the mountains closing the valley. Higher up you see the waterfall of Cinca. On your right spread out the slopes of Larri.

After passing a fountain and crossing a bridge met immediately, you encounter signposts on your left (30min) (1415 m). Follow the sign for "Cascada del Cinca". You walk on the right hand side of the river towards the waterfall and the Pico de Pineta. Probably you meet deers in the meadows. 

When you come to a junction with signposts (1h05min) (1650 m), turn left following the sign for "Cascada del Cinca". Lined by the rock walls of Pico de Pineta the path takes you close to a spot, where the falls descending from the cliffs of the Macizo de Perdido join together forming one waterfall rushing further down (1h18min) (1715 m).

Return the same way back to the parking place (2h30min).

You can also make a circuit by taking the path called "Camino de Montespro" from the junction. However this path is steep and in some places very narrow. Higher up the going gets increasingly vertigenous. The route crosses first a leafy forest and then opens up views to the glaciers of the Monte Perdido behind you and over the valley of Pineta. If you choose this route, follow carefully the white-yellow waymarks. Make sure that after walking some 40 minutes (1970 m) you branch off left. The path goes round the gorge of Montasio to the opposite slopes of the valley and descends to the plain of Larri, where you take a track downhill. On your way you pass some magnificent waterfalls. This route takes four hours.
