After your day on the water, you're back on terra firma and, if it's not too hot, you'll head out from your accommodation equipped with provisions, water, hats, sunglasses, sun cream, and especially comfortable shoes. There are several trails around Garraf, so you can select one according to your preferences, your fitness level and the amount of time you have available. As an example, we suggest a 13km trek of medium difficulty.
The route in question is circular (apart from a slight detour), so you can set off from wherever is most convenient. You could start in Canyelles, where the castle will catch your attention as you first stroll around the village. Although its foundations were laid in the 15th century, it was progressively added to in several subsequent stages. Today it's a private home and has been declared a Cultural Asset of National Interest.
Next you head toward the Pla del Bosc, a wooded plain dotted with farmhouses and vineyards. Shortly afterward, the path leads upward until you're high up enough to look back and enjoy views of the places you've just come from. Then take the path toward Olèrdola, which takes you into a different county – Alt Penedès – which is also a worthwhile incursion. Once the capital of Penedès, Olèrdola is possibly one of the most historically important sites in the region due to its archaeological finds. The trail you're leads to Sant Miquel Mount, with its buildings and ruins from different periods and one of the branches of the Archaeology Museum of Catalonia.
You could take a look at modern Olèrdola, but you still have a way to go on your route, so double back a little and follow the signs to Puig d’Àliga (Eagle Hill). With a height of 465 metres, this is an emblematic and popular location for walkers, offering generous views of the Penedès and Garraf regions up to the Pyrenees. On a clear day, it's not unusual to see the mountains of Mallorca from here. When you've stilled your mind and satisfied your soul, continue on the path that will take you to Canyelles once more and, when you're ready, it's time to pack up and head home after two and a half enjoyable and active days in the Garraf.
