We leave from the church square. Cross the road and take Jardí Street. On reaching the bar, we turn right and go up the street of Sa Talaia, following up. It is a cobbled street flanked by many stones. Leaving the street, turn left and continue along the dirt lane that goes right. Then, we take the dirt road that remains on the right, which becomes a narrow path with a white wall to the left that gradually goes into the forest. We reach a crossroads and take the path up to the left, which leads to a forest track. At the end, we turn right and see a sign indicating the path to follow in the direction of Sa Talaia.


At first, it is a winding and hilly road. We followed until we find a detour past the Puig Cardona, where there will be a fence on the right. We walked up the road to the right that runs parallel to the fence and follow it to another forest track, where you will find a television repeaters. Since the antennas we can contemplate a beautiful view of the entire island. We continue along the forest road to the left, we pass the highest point of the island and trig, marked with a fita (stacked stone) white. We continue along the way to down to the next junction, where we turn left and take a path called Camí des Puig Blanc, until you reach a fork where we turn right. We continue to the next road we find the left, we find another road marked with a rock left hand on the inscription "Bikes" the report said.

We continue along this path and we walk to find a path down to the right, marked with white arrows on the ground. We walked down the steep road up to an esplanade where we find a way to let up on the left, which is marked by the mountain bike route No. 12. We went through an intersection, continue straight and left a path to our right. We continue down the next turning and turn left to continue to the next crossing, where continue straight. Soon, we will go down until you reach the bed of the stream. We find another stream crossing the road from left to right. Get a turn, we continue straight and let a climb to the left.

We continue along the main road without turning until you reach an asphalt road, continue straight until the third road on the left, also paved and in front of which we will see an era. We follow the paved road up until a fence that cuts it, so we took the dirt road on the left. We followed up a curve: to the right is a badly marked trail that climbs up to an old area of ​​cultivation, why spend glued to the left margin until the road goes into the forest. At the first junction turn right and, on reaching the next turn, we went up the road to the left. We will leave behind a house. We continue down the main road and when you reach another crossroads, take the path to the right leads to another crossing, which will double to left. We follow the path until you reach another crossroads turn left; a well that will leave us on the left. We follow the path until you reach a path on the left, ten meters before the entrance of a house. We take it and continue until you reach the fence, where we take the first path we have trodden to reach Sa Talaia. So, we'll be back in Sant Josep.
