What to do
GR11 - Cross-Pyrenean trail
This route follows the southern flank of the Pyrenees from the Bay of Biscay to the Mediterranean. Difficult high-altitude sections give way to peaks, valleys, villages, forests and ridges in a varied landscape of great visual beauty.
The balcony of Mieres. Route 1 Mieres
This route runs from Mieres towards Collet de la Devesa and Coll de Palomera. It was used by local people to go to the annual festivities up on Serra de Finestres.
Joan Maragall path - La Fageda d'en Jordà Nature Reserve. Natural Park route 2
The old trails of Batet. Route 1 Olot
Batet lies on a basalt plateau crowned by the volcano Pujalós. Batet is a wonderful place and provides exceptional views of the Pyrenees and the area around Olot.
The charcoal makers route. Route 2 Mieres
This route follows some of the old paths and trails used to bring wood charcoal down from the Serra de Finestres. The path that passes by Font Ricard is an attractive mule trail that connects the hamlet of Ruïtlles to the church of El Freixe.
Capelleta route. Route 4 Sant Jaume de Llierca
The Ruta de la Capelleta takes you to the remains of this small church (or chapel) that was once a popular place of worship for local people. Today, it is semi-derelict.
A viewpoint over la Vall d'en Bas and la Garrotxa. Route 3 Garrotxa
This is a demanding route as it gains height quickly over a short distance. However, it provides for wonderful views of two singular sites: the impressive waterfall of Salt del Sallent, at its best after heavy rain, and the chapel of Santa Magdalena.
Grau d'Escales route. Route 2 Montagut i Oix
Grau d'Escales is a relatively easy pass (grau = ‘pass’ and escala = ‘step’ in Catalan) between two abrupt cliffs from where there are good views of the Salt dels Lliberals (Liberal’s Leap).
