How to get there: Drive on the A-2609 that runs between Salinas de Sin and Gistaín 1.8 km from San Juan de Plan towards Gistaín until you see a sign for "Parque Natural" on the right hand side of the road. Turn on this sand road. After 5.4 km the road forks. Go left following the signs for "Camping Forcallo" and "Campamento Virgen Blanca". You pass the campsite of Virgen Blanca after 2.9 km. Drive 300 meters further to the campsite of Forcallo. (Roadmap)

Distance: 4h/8.6km

Opposite the coffee house of the campsite you find an information panel and signposts (1575 m). By the panel starts a path downhill towards the "Refugio d'els Plans". You cross the bridge over the river  Zinqueta d'Añes Cruzes and come to a track by the cottage of Plans (3min) (1565 m). Turn right following the sign for "Balsa del Abet".

Take the path that branches off left (15min) (1540 m). First you ascend through an old spruce forest and then through a leafy forest. The path keeps curving left to the edge of the gorge of Pixón. When the forest ends (48min) (1795 m), you continue along a grassy slope uphill. The path snakes its way through a rolling country, crosses a number of hillocks and a brook before you reach the base of a very steep slope  (1h03min) (1920 m).

The ascent along the slope is irksome all the way. Looking behind you see the valley of Chistau. When the steep part ends (1h55min) (2155 m) the path continues gently upwards through a pine forest to the Lagoon of Pixón (2h05min) (2200 m). Return the same way back to the campsite  (4h).
