MTB Roses - Vilaüt
Distance: 25 km
Duration: 2h 30'
Accumulated climb: 200 m
Accumulated descent: 200 m
An easy route, suitable even for families, that allows you to take in two very different and, at the same time, neighbouring landscapes.
The first part is flat, agricultural wetlands, with ponds, pasture, and meadows, towards Lake Vilaüt where you can enjoy the most unspoilt landscapes of the Aiguamolls de l'Empordà.
Next, you approach the lower part of the Serra de Rodes, passing through the beautiful village of Pau and, if you wish, Palau-Saverdera, to discover rougher landscapes, where the cultivation of olive trees takes centre stage, and with views over the Alt Empordà plain.
- When you leave the Ciutadella, you have to cross the road by a pedestrian crossing.
- At the start, you’ll find the ford across the Riera de la Trencada stream which may be flowing with water if it has rained the day before.
- Take care at the various points where you cross county roads.
- The farm tracks can be used by people, bicycles or farm vehicles.
- Respect the rules of the Aiguamolls Natural Park when you enter the Nature Reserve area.
- You can’t take your cycles right up to the door of the hide at Lake Vilaüt.
- Respect the livestock and do not leave gates or fences open.
- Be careful when passing through the town of Pau as the streets are narrow.
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.
