Review

Route that we can do throughout the year, totally urban, which will lead us to know two of the sources of the Ripoll core. In the first one, from the Amoroset, we will find a table and a space for barbecue. In the second, Font Naixent, we will find a play area for children.

We will start the circuit in front of the Avellaneda Sports Center, crossing the road to take the greenway (Via Verda) towards the town. At the height of the CAT (Can Guetes) we will cross the road again, and down the streets, and after some stairs and a short stretch of road, we will arrive at the Font de l’Amoroset.

We will go back the last section, and will enter in the streets of the town, where after a first section of descent, we turn to the left and look for the street Raval de l’Hospital, Calle Costabona and Calle Balandrau respectively. At the end of this last street, we will find the fountain Font Naixent. If we continue climbing the wooden stairs, we will find a sports area.

The return will be done by the same path, avoiding the first fountain.

Review

Route that we can do at any time of the year, practically urban, with a stretch of path before reaching the Font d’en Jordana. In this last fountain we will find a wide zone of leisure, with tables, and even some football goals.

We will start the route in front of the Pavelló de l’Avellaneda, and towards Ripoll we will cross the Riu Ter to go through the back of the Monastery. Over the streets we will arrive at the first fountain, Sant Eudalt, that we will find on the right, and we will continue along the same street until we reach Font del Sant.

With great caution we will cross the road, and go down some stairs to cross the Riu Freser over the bridge. Walking along a paved track we will arrive, following the vertical signs and the track, to the Font del Tòtil, next to the Riu Freser.

We will undo a short section, until we will find a crossroads, where we will turn right to cross the train track, always with great caution, and enter a dirt road, first by track and after by trail, which will lead us in smooth rise until the Font d’en Jordana, an area with a lot of shade where we can make a long break.

We will return to the cement track, and in a few minutes we will be back to the core of Ripoll, which we will cross to return to the starting point for a walk next to the Riu Ter.

Min. height:  700 m

Description

Ideal circuit to perform throughout the year. In summer the Passeig dels Aurons is very fresh and allows you to refresh in the river. Very entertaining tour to do with children, where we will enjoy the views going up to Mas Guitard and the Passeig dels Aurons.

We will start the tour in the Pavelló de l’Avellaneda, on the green route towards Sant Joan de les Abadesses, to cross the road on an underpass, and just ahead of us we will follow a straight path, which will leave us on a track after crossing the Torrent. de les Carboneres, and that in a gentle climb, we will continue without loss until we find another one that goes to our left, this time with more slope, and where we will always see Mas Guitard. Shortly before reaching the farmhouse we turn left to start down again to the Ferro Route on a path, where we will find the Font del Clot dels Averns. Once we reach the greenway, we turn right to make a short stretch until we find Font Nova, where we can refresh.

We will go back along the greenway, this time towards Ripoll, to cross the lower pass and just behind we will find a detour to the right, to cross the Torrent de les Carboneres, and following the path we will arrive at the Font dels Pintors . Without loss, after going up and down some stairs, we will make the last stretch next to the Riu Ter, by the Passeig dels Aurons, where we will find a wooden footbridge to go directly back to the Pavelló de l’Avellaneda.
