The itinerary starts at the Santa Pau bridge parking lot. We go to the center of the village and leave the streets of Les Cases Velles. We descend through the orchards to the bridge of Instincts. We pass below Can Pujol and Can Bellaguarda. Here we find a track and a path to the left and we will go to Santa Maria dels Arcs. The itinerary crosses the football field (bus parking lot) and goes to a road. In a few meters you turn right along the Can Pratdavall oak grove. After passing the trail, a path to the right leads us to the Can Rosta pass.

When arriving at the farm, you have to skirt it behind the road and we will come to a trail that will take us to Can Esparregueres (where we can see monumental holm oaks). We arrive at the Mieres road, cross the bridge and turn left onto a small track. We pass a fountain and we cross the river to a walkway, cross it and head towards Sant Vicenç de Sallent. We passed behind the church and left on the road.

We find the entrance to the Rocacorba farm and follow the street that will descend us to a bridge. The itinerary continues along a path to the left of the bridge (section shared with the GR-2) that passes below Can Batlle and until the jump of the same name. We climb the path past and past Can Formiga we can see the stone of the Devil in a meadow on our right. The path returns to cross the river, we find sources until the break of Sant Martí Vell. Here we have the option to go straight or turn right to get to the hermitage. We go back to cross the river and go up to Santa Pau reaching the Mieres road. It is worth it (despite being circular) to do it in this sense to avoid the unevenness.
