Terrain descriptionIn the race zone predominates the Mediterranean forest, mostly oak, whose penetrability is low or very low. In the higher parts or in exploited forests the penetrability is better. The terrain is quite undulating, with uneven gradients between moderate and strong. In the highest parts there are numerous rocky outcrops and semi-urban areas. The whole area is covered by a large network of roads connecting the different valleys. As a general rule, torrents and streams descend dry or with very little water, but during the rainy season these may have significant sudden swellings. The race goes largely within the Natural Park of the Volcanic Zone of La Garrotxa, so it is required to have great respect for the environment, as well as for public and private properties. Autumn in La Garrotxa can be cold, especially in the early hours.
Holiday activities,nature,hiking etc.The village is near 15km to Natural Park of La Garrotxa, the area with more volcanos of Spain. The area is known for the Stream pool (gorgues in catalan) created by volcanic stones and little rivers.
