Water and el Rocar Trail

On this route, you will be able to admire the most unique places that surround Santa Coloma, the Sant Salvador Park and the el Rocar.

On the one hand, the Water Trail runs from Magma to the stream pool of Vilà. This is a very easy route that crosses the park with its fountains, following the stream. If you are very observant, while you follow the Water Trail you will find three indicators of the el Rocar Trail, that correspond to the three possible routes to climb the mountain.

Over the course of the el Rocar Trail, you will be able to discover many sculpted granite formations in curious shapes, which are the result of erosion suffered over time, as well as some panoramic views of the town as you climb the mountain. The ascent passes by the rocks of the Mare de Déu and Miranda rock. During the descent you will see the rocks of Talaia, Diamant, Gola, Laberint, Carall and Rinoceront. There are also deviations that will take you to the rocks of Alls, Aigua, Castell and Avió.
