The municipality of Bordils has been protecting for a long time some of the oldest and largest trees for their exceptionality and uniqueness, which has made it possible to create this nature route with the pleasant tour of the monumental trees.

We leave from the front of the Town Hall where there is a Bordilenc, the white tree, the original tree of the village. We turn right to the laundry room and turn left along the small path next to the Sèquia Vinyals. Then we cross the bridge and turn left towards Pla Suardell. We continue along the road next to the sèquia until the end of the park, where we will see the poplars of Mas de La Riera. We turn right and then left, until the Sant Martí river. We continue to the left and at 100 meters to the right, there is the tree of Can Prat on the right and then on the left we can see the Troncos de Plátano del Saltant.

We continue along the river until we reach the Fresno of Pla de Mollet and continue until La Palanca, where the waterleft over from the Vinyals sèquia has already drained the river of Sant Martí, where it will flow to the river Ter. We cross the Palanca and continue along the paved road.

We find the neighbourhood of Rissec, along which you see a wide cultivation of trees and other plantations called the Ban. We continue until crossing the Palagret river and shortly after about 2 km we reach the oak of the Cànova. We continue to the left and to 100 meters we turn to the right, for 100 meters then turn to the left, entering the road that takes us to cal Cuní Gros to see his Fresno.

We go back and turn right to the neighbourhood of Molí, and to the first paved junction we find, turn left. At 200 meters there is the holm oak of Molí. We continue on the way down to the Palagret river and in 100 meters to the right we climb a path that takes us to the place of the white trees. We return to the river and continue on the right. At the second crossing to the left, we find the Roble de las Arenas.

We go back to the river and thread the road ahead to go to the town center. We follow this street to the end and turn the second street on the right. We follow this street to get to the point of departure.
