Bonés and Belarra mountain ranges make up the northern limit of Guara territory and are an excepcional panoramic view point of all the Aragonese Pyrenees and their valleys.
This route allows to visit the ridges of those mountain ranges by dirt roads, from Bonés meadows to Ibirque dolmen passing by the well-known Monrepós pass and the lovely uninhabited village of Ibirque. Always with the Pyrenees as a perfect background. From Collado de Baíl the track returns by a quiet and pleasant local road through Nocito valley and Pardina de Orlato with amazing views of Tozal de Guara northface. In Lúsera it takes an excelent singletrack to the Belsué dam and from there towards Belsué. The route finishes with a tough ascent by dirt road to Mesón Nuevo.
