The narrow-gauge railway “El Carrilet”. Greenway from Olot to Girona. (traffic-free)

This easy to medium ride of 57km crosses 3 counties and 12 villages, along the river valleys of the Fluvià, Brugent i Ter Rivers. The Ruta del Carrilet Olot-Girona has a gentle downhill slope for almost its entire length, from Olot at 440m, to Girona at 70m of elevation. The highest point is the Coll d’en Bas, at 558 metres over sea level, which is reached in the early stages of the ride. The route, which is open to walkers, runners and cycle tourists, is built for the most part on an old narrow-gauge railway, and is in very good condition throughout, with new bridges, signage and infrastructure.
