This hike starts from the Garriga train station and will take us through the oak and pine forests to gradually climb up to the Puiggraciós Tower.
We will continue along a path which runs over the cliffs overlooking all these steep walls with lush vegetation and an amazing panoramic view of the whole Montseny natural park, including the Tagamanent or Matagalls in the background. We will finish at the Figaró station, passing by the beautiful waterfall of Salt del Prat that can reach up to 30 meters high.
