Itinerary 5. GRILL WATERFALL CIRCULAR

Route
25/07/2019
Index card

Introduction

Where the Grill waterfall joins the Freser River.

This is a refreshing and varied proposal, ideal for summer, but also has its charm to do it during spring or fall.
Perhaps the highlight of the Queralbs' Grill Waterfall Circular route is the gorges and waterfalls of the Freser gorges, surrounded by alder trees, ash trees and hazel trees, and of course the magical corner of Grill waterfall. We also highlight Carboner's pine forests and the forest of the King (Bosc del Rei).

Description

    Where the Grill waterfall joins the Freser River.

     
    We start Queralbs' Grill Waterfall - Circular route at the Daió Bridge, next to the hydroelectric plant that has the same name. We immediately cross Freser river to follow it up on the left-hand side, from where we will hear and see some waterfalls that will make us the enjoy the route further.
     
    We are gaining height progressively and before we realize we will reach Salt del Grill (Grill's Waterfall). We especially recommend going after it rains to enjoy the Salt of the Grill waterfall in its whole glory.
     
    We return to the main road and we have the Freser gorges at our feet. Little by little we are approaching Freser's course until crossing it at the Pont de les Ribes. Next to the bridge, and a little further down, we can enjoy small gorges and waterfalls where we can cool off in the summer.
     
    Once we cross the bridge we find a wide track, comfortable, and without too much slope at the beginning, that will take us without great difficulties to the starting point.
     
    At Torrent del Forn we will leave the track and follow a path on the right-hand side that follows its descent course. The trail is a bit steep at first, but quite comfortable as we begin to loose height.
     
    The trail becomes a rocky trail as you cross a small water channel, and a little further down the road you will find the central road that will comfortably take you to the starting point.
