Fulleda Turisme Actiu offers this route in “Trail” mode: “Trail el Mas Blanc” short route of 15 km with 600 m of accumulated positive gradient. A circular route with start and end in Fulleda and designed to follow counter clockwise.
The short route that makes up part of “El Trail Mas Blanc” consists of 15 kilometres and allows you to discover much of the town of Fulleda and Tarrés with many sections of trail over the hilltops with many great views. This would also be suitable for hiking with moderate difficulty.
The 15-kilometer route has an initial urban section inside the picturesque town of Fulleda, leaving Avinguda d’Agustina Zaragoza towards Plaça de Ramon Santamaria, Carrer la Bassa following a paved section until the track turns to the left towards a steep descent that will take you to the Fondo dels Pous. Leaving the Fondo, you will climb towards the Plans de l’Arboç where you will turn right towards La Planota. You will continue towards La Mirona passing Font del Cinto. Take caution at this point as the ground is usually be quite muddy! You will then continue towards Vall dels Cortals along a paved road that skirts this valley until reaching the Fondo dels Massos, where you will leave the paved road to turn left until you find Reboll de l’Engràcia, a century-old tree of recommended visit and crossing point for other Fulleda Active Tourism routes. We will follow the path towards Racó de Moscarró and there we will start the ascent along a path to the Plans de Tarrés, passing by the charming paths that form the route of the Forns de Calç. We will leave the Plans de Tarrés and follow the Forns de Calç of Tarrés until reaching Comes de Montgral, turning right along the pipeline and following Pedrera del Palau towards the Serra del Penjat (663 m), from where you can enjoy magnificent views of Fulleda and its surroundings. We will leave the Serra del Penjat by passing the Pipeline, turning right until we reach Font d’en Salat, where we will start the ascent to the Plans de l’Arborç along Camí de Montblanc. The last 300 meters are by road to reach Fulleda, so we ask for caution in this section. A perfect route for those looking to spend a pleasant time discovering the singularities of the municipality of Fulleda and Les Garrigues.
This route is perfect for people who are just starting out on the Trail and are already used to running these distances and slopes. There are some stretches of difficult progression, but overall, it is a very apt, easy and beautiful route. It is recommended not to drink water from springs, as they do not have adequate sanitation. A perfect opportunity to discover the paths and valleys that form the municipality of Fulleda.
A discovery of a route fully recommended by Fulleda Turisme Actiu.
