Peak of Moros

Advancing to the south, this modest mountain is still an excellent viewpoint of La Cerdanya. Located at the southern end of La Calma, it is accessible from the reception of the Font-Romeu ski resort. However, from the Thémis solar power plant the route is more direct and attractive. The summit is used for paragliding.

From the open field before the Thémis power station (1,622 m), take a track and then a signposted path that skirts the enclosure of the mirrors to the right in the direction of the Vilalta holes. This power station, which has a large unmistakable chimney seen from afar, consists of a set of conical mirrors that concentrate sunlight in an oven that reaches 3,000 ° C. Once in the holes, without crossing the torrent, follow a path to the right that gains altitude between provence groom bushes and juniper bushes.

We leave the Grossa spring on the left (1,860 m, 30 min), the water of which comes out of some squalid slabs. On the other side of the stream are the remains of a hut. The path turns sharply to the right and between Prats, where the cattle can graze in the middle of winter if there is no snow, by a moderate and constant slope you reach La Calma, an extensive plateau with more pastures. Between some black pines and jumping a wire for cattle, it connects with the track that comes from the Clots hill, at the reception of the Font-Romeu ski resort. If there is snow this trail is a Nordic ski circuit. Continue to the right until you find a detour in the same direction, to the right. After a couple of loops, you reach the top of the Peak of Moros (2,137 m, 1 h 15 min), from which you dominate the whole of Cerdanya.
