We start the route in the parking of the football field area, in the Pineda, next to the MTB Center. Leaving the village of Sant Gregori behind us, we continue along the paved road until cross the bridge over the Llémena, where we turn left to take a path that will take us to the meeting of the Llémena with the Ter. Here the road makes a 90 degree turn to the right. We follow it so that the Ter always stays to our left, until we reach to a wider track, that we will follow. We leave to the right a road that goes through the crops of the plane of the Argelaguet, and two turns to the left, the firs one on the island of the Pilaster and later that, on of the corridor that would take us to cross the Ter towards Bescanó.

Then we find a paved road that we tend to follow to the left. Where a dirt track that follows the Ter begins, we have to follow the asphalt turning right. We leave the asphalt to follow the dirt track that will take us to the Picant or Can Corominas fountain, where we can see the building around it and taste the carbonic water.

We continue along the path that is set before us, until we find the forest track that goes from the Argelaguet to Sant Grau. We only have to cross this track to start going down a sidewalk that borders the fence of can Clarà and that takes us to the fountain of the Raig.

The itinerary continues on an accessible road also for cars, which leads to a paved section that we follow downhill. When we lead to a small road also paved, we follow it to the left passing in front of the castle of Sant Gregori. This castle has a long history. We continue through the church neighbourhood crossing a group of farmhouses, and passing in front of the church, we look for the paved road (leaving the entrance of the cemetery on the left). Well son we find a hard climb to the left, which we leave behind and we continue along the dirt road.

After 200 meters, we find access to the fountain of can Verdaguer or Groga fountain. We return to the dirt track, and on the first curve to the left we take a path that goes to the right and takes us to reach the lock of the mill of Sant Gregori. We continue across a forest and just as we arrive in an orchard area we turn right to return to the Church neighbourhood. When we find the paved road, we follow it to the left until the first right turn. In front of us we see the bridge of the Llémena, but without reaching it, we take the dirt track (on our right we leave the Mill) and continue along the path that continues straight ahead of us. We reach a cross of four paths and turn right to cross the Llémena river. Once past the river, we soon find the Pineda where we have started the route of the fountains.
