STAGES

* The starting point of the GR 221 in Port d'Andratx and the two first stages have some problems and the opening of the mountain hut in la Trapa isn't planned. It will be some years until the "main route" of the GR 221 is opened.

* On the other side, work should start on summer 2018 to turn Cases de Galatzó into a mountain hut. The route from Es Capdellà to Estellencs is signposted (alt. section of the GR 221) and could become the main route of the GR 221 in the next years.

___________________________________________

La Trapa- Coll de sa Gramola (1h 45min): Go up on the dirt track to a sharp bend to the right and take the footpath to the left (NE, 5'). Near the Cape Punta Fabioler (20', picture 1) the path veers to the right (picture 2) until a fork (20') where you can take each of the 2 paths (the left one is more interesting) which reach an earth track (10') to the Coll de sa Gramola (45')

 

Coll de sa Gramola- Refugi de sa Coma d’en Vidal (4h 15min): Follow the road Ma-10 to the left for 1600m (20') till you turn right (km. 104,4- Coma des Cellers). Take a track (picture 3) to its end where a narrow path veers left to a wide ridge (15', picture 4). Watch carefully for the cairns (picture 5,6), cross two stiles and climb to the key point Pas d’en Ponsa (10’). After it, the path veers right (dir. SE, first, and afterwards E) to reach a threshing floor. The GR goes down from the threshing floor to the left (N) to the dry source of Font des Quer (10’) and on to a pass (5’). Cross the wall and turn left diagonally to another threshing floor (5', picture 6). The overgrown footpath drops down for 10 min (dir N) and reaches a wall (start of the alternative section B). Go over it to the left, take the narrow track downhill and reach the mountain hostel ‘Refugi de sa Coma d’en Vidal (15’)

 

Refugi de sa Coma d’en Vidal- Estellencs (1h 15min): Follow the flat earth track which quickly zigzags down (picture 7) to a water tank (30') and a junction. Turn left and before reaching the road (10', after a paved bend), go to the right and take a narrow track. Cross the road (5'), go through the forest, look for a track (5') and turn right. After 10min, walk on the road again which you follow till the km. 95,6 where you turn left to Estellencs (20’).
