This route allows you to discover one of the least known but most interesting areas of La Garrotxa Volcanic Zone Natural Park, walking between forests and farmhouses.

This trail starts at the old Sant Feliu de Pallerols railway station car park (today a Tourist Information Office). Follow the Carrilet rail trail until you reach the crossroads at Sant Miquel de Pineda. Cross the road and follow the tarmacked road into the valley of Sant Iscle.

Before you get to Sant Iscle, you will see a branch that goes to the Coll de la Serrella pass. After Sant Iscle, you will see another branch which leads to Colltort Castle and links up with the Can Tia volcano. After the church, there is a paved track that also goes to the volcano. At the Coll de la Serrella, there is a path that goes to the Les Medes volcano, which is off the route.

The trail continues towards the Traiter volcano, passing the farmhouses in the area. At Can Estanyol de Baix (house), there is a path to Sant Salvador de Puig-alder. Return to Sant Feliu de Pallerols along the street that runs alongside the football ground.

This route is very long and a lot of it is along unsurfaced tracks or tarmacked roads. This trail is recommended for doing by mountain bike.
