The second adventure explores the area surrounding Matadepera. This is a circular itinerary and, while it's not particularly difficult, it is slightly more complicated than the first route, as it covers 12 kilometres and leads you into the mountains, with all the ups and downs that involves. So, it’s time to don some comfortable shoes, put on your sun cream, fill your flasks with cool water, protect your head from the sun, and you're off!
On this route you'll discover several typical Catalan country houses ('masies') and some of the other surprises found east of the town. You'll start from the Plaça de Sant Jordi in Matadepera and head in the direction of the Font de la Tartana. Soon you pass by the Mas de Can Gorina and then continue toward a Roman site and the Can Solà de Racó masia. Once you reach the Font de la Tartana, take the path to Can Torres, where you go down the trail toward the Collet de Cabrafiga and then to the Collet dels Forns. Next the path climbs up to the Rossos and Mont-rodon hills before heading back down to Matadepera, passing the Font del Corraló and Can Vinyers. This trail is ideal for fans of mountain biking.
Once back in the town, if you still have time and energy to spare, take a stroll around the streets or enjoy some of the other attractions, such as the Municipal Golf Course at the foot of the Sant Llorenç del Munt i l’Obac Natural Park. They offer various beginner classes for those new to the sport, and one Sunday each month there's an open day which includes a free group class.
