From Argelès to Pierrefitte
it is advised to take the cycle path (former rail track), situated
between the busy D921 and the Gave de Pau. Turn right in the
center of Pierrefitte and follow the D920 through the charming
valley of the Gave de Cauterets. Finally, pass the pretty tourist
village of Cauterets and continue climbing to Pont d'Espagne.
The road ends at a large car park.
