The long-distance path GR-10 has a branch that goes across Serra, which allows you to do a circular itinerary within the municipality’s limits. The itinerary starts at Serra’s Town council and follows the GR-10 variant within town. It takes La Pobleta Street to leave the urban limits and heads to the mountain. Follow the red and white marks towards the path of El Berro, until the spring of El Poll, the end of the GR-10’s branch. From there, take the forestry track to your right in order to get back to Serra, following the GR-10 again. You will pass by the spring of El Llentiscle and La Prunera. Always following the red and white marks, carry on along a trial that will lead you towards the gully of Marianet and the spring of the same name. After walking a few metres along the CV-310 road, you will carry on heading to the spring of L’Ombria, pass by the tower of Ria and, from there, you will arrive to Serra.
