Depart from the small car park by
Masos dels Recs. Heading west, take the left branch at the bifurcation towards the main road , cross over great care, and join the track by the Go Karting circuit, which will now be on your right. Walk over the bridge on Rec Cinyana (where the allotment fences are). Do not go straight, but take first right, then left. Following this path, you will see Mas Nou de Nicet, on the left. A few meters ahead, there is another stream, Rec del Molí. A few meters further down is Mas Martí on the left hand side.
Keep southwards along this track edged by fruit fields, sight the white house. The path does a sharp right turn. Continue in this direction for some 300 metres until the path veers to the right. You will sight
Mas Duaner in the distance. Turn left at the sharp bend, then go straight and a soft bend will set you by Rec del Molí canal. Follow it till you reach the narrow Albons road GIV-6322. Turn right, heading towards l’Escala for a stretch, and cross over Rec del Molí and over Rec de Cinyana again, turning right once more after the bridge. Heading towards Mas Vilanera, look for the signpost “ Camí de Vilanera als Recs”. The track bordering the farmhouse makes a small left bend, becoming a stretch that will take you past the Pi Gros (Big Pine-Tree), and l’Escala industrial estate a little further down is. Keep going and to skirt the Go Kart circuit, which will be on your right this time. Carefully cross over the main road before arriving back at the starting point, where this walk ends, on Masos dels Recs car park.
