We start the itinerary in the leisure area of ​​Castellciuró; It is not accessible by public transport, we will have to arrive by bicycle or by car. The town Molins de Rei has a Renfe station and the urban stretch to be reach the start it is not very complicated, although it will be a steep climb.
From the castle, which in the seventeenth century hosted the knights of the Order of the Temple, we headed towards Santa Creu d'Olorda where we will arrive at La Pedrera by the black slate, a former mining operation. Santa Creu is an important leisure area that has traditionally been a gathering area. Leaving the area, we will take a road to the track that will descend us down the valley of Sant Feliu, passing through some reforestation pines. Just before reaching the area of La Salut, we will begin the ascent towards ca n'Abbalal up to the Coll de Can Cuiàs, from where we will continue down to arrive at Castellciuró, where a fountain awaits us.

We emphasize the low vegetation that characterizes the landscape of this area of ​​the Baix Llobregat, a rural and agricultural environment that is combined with shrubland and forest vegetation. Try to discover the different fruit trees: almond trees, olive trees, carob trees, these last easily recognizable by carob, a table that reminds us of beans.
