The park compose it the mountains of Sant Llorenç of the Munt and the ones of the neighbouring saw of l'Obac. Both join in the Coll d'Estenalles, in the cabecera of laughed it of the Arenes, laughed that it separates them with a valley of karstic origin of sides very escarpados.

To the sides of this macizo, a group of ravines or “channels” divide it in secondary units. They stand out the blocks of the Mola (1.103 metres), the Òrbits (1.031 metres) and the Montcau (1.056 metres).
