We start the route in the parking of the Montserrat school, which is above a hill. We start by walking along the asphalt passing between farmhouses and we pass the parish of Sant Pau de Sarrià de Dalt. Just ahead, we leave a paved road that goes down to the left to continue until we find a fork. We do not follow the paved road or the wide dirt road, but by a path that goes between the two options. We pass by a house, a path between fields on the left and forests on the right, to follow our route with good views towards the area of Rocacorba. Shortly after 300 meters, to our right we see a kind of holes excavated to the rock, shows that it has remained from the extraction of stone made in Roman times.
We are now on a wide track. In front we have the hill of Can Guilana, remains of an ancient volcano, where there are installed antennas that guide the planes to the airport. We continue to the left and take a path that leaves the track to the left and downhill, which leads us to find the paved road that goes from Sarrià to Sant Medir, municipality of Sant Gregori. We continue 30 meters to the right crossing a small bridge and leave it again to go down the road that leaves on the left.
This road takes us across the Riera d’en Xuncla, also known as the Rimau, which is born to the Montcal neighbourhood. Once past the stream (you have to keep in mind that there is no bridge and if it has rained a lot, maybe we wet our feet) we follow the track, bu twhen it makes a curve to the right and begins to thread, ee leave it to continue along a path that takes us to the left hand. This allows us to go to look for the stream at the point where -within the water- there are the remains of the stones of the mill that was half built. This place is known as the Molers.
You have to return to the road to continue the route. After a short stretch of going up, we find a crossroad. We will go down to the left to meet again the river where we can see the lock of the mill d’en Tomàs. Following the river d’en Xuncla to the right by the sidewalk that comes from some stone slabs, we have the possibility to go down again to touch the river to see the salt d’en Timbarro, just in front of the mill d’en Tomàs. It is a spectacular jump when there is water and where we recommend you to stop.
We come back from the short stretch and continue to the left when we find the point where we had descended. Passing by the side of the ruins of Can Sais and the large oaks we continue the sidewalk until we find a crossroads. We take the one that goes down to the left and cross again the river d’en Xuncla. we have the option to follow the track or take a path that leaves on the right when the widest road turns left. The two of them take us back to the starting point of this excursion.
