Description

In that sense, the route makes it easy to interpret the new uses of spaces: how we've gone from professional market gardens to urban ones; how the old factory has become a cultural venue; how a farmhouse has become a civic centre; or how marginal spaces have been turned into urban wetlands.

This itinerary which is approximately 7,5 km in long, is flat and practicable for persons with reduced mobility. This means that there may be certain isolated difficulties, but the route is usable. Most of the itinerary is on compacted but non-asphalted earth. There are a few areas that are irregular or where there are stones and/or sand.

 

Tips

TRAÇAT

  • Traçat fàcil i adaptat per a persones amb cadires de rodes, cosa que no vol dir que pot presentar alguna dificultat mínima puntual. La major part dels camins són de terra compactada però no asfaltats, puntualment amb algun sector amb irregularitats o amb presència de pedres i/o sorra.
  • No presenta forts desnivells.
  • En cas de fortes pluges, es poden formar bassals als camins.
  • El tram que coincideix amb la Via Verda d’Olot a Girona, cal estar atents a la circulació de bicicletes.

AIGUA

  • No hi ha punts d’aigua potable en tot el recorregut. Porteu almenys una cantimplora ben plena.

PRECAUCIONS

  • En cas de pluges abundants, el riu Ter augmenta el seu cabal. Absteniu-vos de baixar al llit del riu en cas de crescudes temporals.

METEO

  • Hi ha breus trams de camí que van pel mig de la devesa, amb força ombres. No obstant hi ha també trams exposats al sol. A l’estiu, poseu-vos protecció solar.

TERRENY

  • El terreny és gairebé sempre molt fàcil, amb trams de terra compactada. Només en cas de pluges prèvies, ens podem trobar amb alguns bassals.
