1. From Viladrau Collformic

This section is the eighth stage of the long-distance Green Meridian route that was created for the 200th anniversary of the Metric Decimal System. The stage runs through the north of the Montseny Natural Park   Among forests of chestnut, holm oak, oak and beech, it passes through the Erola sanctuary and ascends to the Sant Segimon area. A few kilometers from Collformic is the town of El Brull, which is close to a walled Iberian town that was discovered in the mid-sixties. They call it the Iberian wall of Montgròs and it is one of the best preserved defensive systems of the time. You can visit the entrance gate, two fortification lines, the defense tower and the guard corps.

2. From Collformic in Cànoves

Also following the Meridiano Verde route, from Collformic, a beautiful walk through Pla de la Calma that goes down through the Vallfornès valley to Cànoves. Save a little time and energy to get to Can Cuc and the monumental chestnut tree of the same name, especially if you go with children, they will love it! They also call it fat chestnut from the Casa del Bosque and it is the thickest tree in all of Catalonia. So much so that in 1960, a charcoal burner was installed for a year and a half. In fact, it is considered by the Generalitat of Catalonia as a "monumental tree". It is located within the municipality of Cànoves i Samalús, in the Vallès Oriental.

3. From Montseny to Tagamanent

This proposal is the first stage of a route of great beauty that if you like hiking you cannot stop doing: the Three Mountains. For the foothills of Cerro del Hombre and Matagalls, go up to Pla de la Calma from where you will enjoy incredible views. Also save some time to make the ascent to the top of the Tagamanent, eat something at the Masía El Bellver and, if you go with children, visit the Agustí House Museum, which offers a guided tour of all the corners of the Félix farmhouse. Agustín, who was the owner at the end of the 18th century. Inside, you can contemplate objects of the time and enjoy the music, smells and images that accompanied the family that lived on any given day. An option for all audiences that allows you to get an idea of what the daily life of a mountain peasant family was like in Catalonia.
