All Geo-Route have been designed so that they can be covered on foot and are clearly signposted; in most cases they are based on official short-route (PR) or long-route (GR)except PN 1, PN 4, PN 5, PN 9, PN 10 and PN 11 that combine a stretch of road and vehicle with trails paths. There is a brochure on each route in order to facilitate the interpretation of each stop on the way.

AIn addition, 11 of these geological routes are located in the Ordesa and Monte Perdido National Park, including the territory of the Geopark, and 3 of the Geo-routes are of a cross-border nature, allowing visitors to enjoy the geological heritage of the Pyrenees-Monte Perdido, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.l
