Time on MTB: 1.5 hrs. Distance: 12 km aprox.
This route allows us to know a bit more about Albanyà's nearby architectural heritage. It does not require an excellent physical condition, even with the steep ascent at the beginning, but there are no signals and you have to be careful when the Muga river is full of water.
We start the route at Albanyà to the top of the Ferrerós mountains (to the north) and start to go down facing northwest, thus leaving Mas Ferrerós (a farmhouse) on the right. The path leads us to the Gorgues of the Muga river (natural river pools) and follows the river for a while. We keep following the path until we reach Pont del Bertran (a XIX Century’s bridge) to cross the river. There is a path to the left that leads to the Colomer del Bertran (a medieval dovecote) and, close to it, the Castell (castle) de Serrat.
We do come back until we reach the same path that we used to go downwards the Ferrerós mountains. We will take a path to the right and follows the river until reaching the Molina farm and, if we follow the path, to the Bassegoda Park.
