Test Gravel Roses – Aiguamolls de l'Empordà
Distance: 43 km
Accumulated climb: 70 m
Accumulated descent: 70 m
This route, starting in Roses, is ideal for visiting and gaining an overview of the Aiguamolls de l'Empordà Natural Park. The gentle route largely coincides with the Ruta dels Estanys and, partially, with the Pirinexus cycle route, so you will find other cyclists going in both
You will pass through town centres incorporated into the park, some of them very unusual and original, such as Empuriabrava and Castelló d'Empúries. You will cross the Muga river and the open spaces between ponds, some of them equipped with hides from which to observe the fauna. Before reaching the midpoint of the route, you will go through El Cortalet, where the information centre of the park is located, and continue until you come across the Camí de les Llúdrigues (Path of the Otters), next to the Fluvià river.
- You will travel along some short stretches of paved road, with very little vehicle traffic. However, precautions must be taken.
- Be careful in Empuriabrava if you take the cycle lane: when you reach the roundabouts from the left-hand side, you should take care and perhaps go up onto the pavement, as cars move into the cycle lane.
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.
