After Olot, we leave the Greenways behind us. This part of the route is shared with vehicles. It is a quiet road, especially during the working week. This is where, geographically speaking, the Pyrenees begin. And you will certainly notice this because the steep climbs start here (over 600 metres in 10 km). As we ascend, we get a bird’s eye view of the plain of the Vall d’en Bas and the city of Olot. When we reach the Coll de Coubet we get a close-up view of the summits of the easternmost peaks of the Pyrenees on the other side of the mountain range we have just climbed. Once we have left the Coll de Coubet, and are on the shady side of the mountain, the change in the vegetation will remind us that we are in a mountainous area and are now leaving the holm oak and pedunculate oak forests behind and are about to enter beech woods. Remember to wrap up warmly for the descent! You are in the Pyrenees and will be going down quickly. When you get to the bottom, you will be in the Ripollès Region.
