Time Out says

A natural agricultural area where you can enjoy numerous activities

There are various characters who feature in a popular legend about Salt, all of who are supposed to live in the Deveses de Salt (the Woodlands of Salt): the daughter of the mountain, the hairy man of the Pilastra, the Mifegínia nymph and the son of thunder. The Deveses are an agricultural natural spot through which the river Ter runs before it arrives in the city. In addition, the characters provide the name for different routes set out around the park, some of which are fully suitable for wheelchairs while others are partially so, but all are designed for visitors to discover the natural wealth and diversity of the area. The woodlands cover 310 hectares where different nature protection associations organise various activities, such as simple orienteering routes that are appropriate for everybody, and routes for running that follow the Vies Verdes (old train tracks converted into walking, cycling and running paths) and the Way of Saint James. The space also hosts other activities such as carriage rides, horse and pony treks, days when you can see them putting rings on birds, and canoeing (kayak).
