Nature Routes

Parc dels cirerers Trail through the Cherry Tree Park in Can Salgado. This itinerary will allow you to tour around the municipality of Santa Coloma de Cervelló. In the first part, before exiting the urban center, you must follow the white and green horizontal signs, which are typical indicators of local trails. Further on, these signs are reinforced with the altitude, place names and distances. This itinerary is apt to do walking or by BTT; it is not very rigorous, with little rough terrain, and passes through urban areas, forests and fields. The itinerary has two options. One is extending the route (through cal Formigueraire) and the other is shortening it, going directly to can Julia without passing through can Ros houses around can Codina.
