Cross Gravel Roses – Cap de Creus
Distance: 66 km
Duration: 7h 30'
Accumulated climb: 1.493 m
Accumulated descent: 1.493 m
The cycle route we propose will lead you to visit some of the most charismatic and well-known points of the Cap de Creus Natural Park, such as the villages of Roses, La Selva de Mar, Port de la Selva and Cadaqués.
You’ll follow paths with panoramic views of the natural park and much more besides. The different shades of browns, greens and blues are a constant throughout the route, doing much to compensate for the effort of a long route with some hills.
It should be noted that using a gravel bike will allow you to follow the route, but you’ll have to make use of its wilder side since you will find some sections of a more technical nature due to the lack of maintenance on some roads, the stony geology of the area and
the steepness of some slopes.
- Be careful on the descents if you choose the gravel bike option, because at certain points the speed can be dangerous and will prevent you from following the right line to avoid loose and sharp stones.
The trails are an option to follow specific routes. The trail markers are exclusively of informative nature that indicate where the planned itinerary goes. Given the diverse situations and circumstances that may occur, it is essentially impossible to guarantee that this signage remains intact always. As such, the Town Hall and/or other entities that maintain the signage are not to be held liable for damages and/or loss in the case of getting lost or any other potential problem that users may face when using the indicated routes.
For this reason, users following the marked routes are recommended to not only rely on the signage for direction. Rather, both prior and during their excursion, they should have a map, GPS or compass at hand in order to solve any problems that may present themselves.
Additionally, it is important to keep in mind that when following a marked trail, the norms for movement and correct behaviour should be totally respected, whether on trail, road or streambed.
The marked routes on the trails are merely informative, and, as such, the Town Hall of Roses is not to be held liable for the accidents occurred whilst using said trails. When using the trails, it is recommended to do so with the proper equipment and material, keeping the prior recommendations in mind.
