The route starts at the old train station of Sant Feliu, where you can park your car, we will find the junction of Itinerànnia G993 Sant Feliu-Antiga estació and we will continue direction of Les Planes d’Hostoles, we will take the greenway. We could continue on the greenway but our proposal begins by walking through the streets of the village.
Once past the bridge, following the yellow markings, turn right onto Carrer de la Travessa, go up the stairs and continue left onto Carrer del Puig de Grúfol, find the G80 junction and follow the direction again the Planes d'Hostoles. We will go along the river along Carrer Sant Sebastià, at the end of this street we will turn left and after a few meters on the right we will follow the greenway.
The first gorge we will find is a few meters away, the gorg d’en Boix, also known as Miami. Be careful because this pool is not signposted from the greenway. We will cross a wooden bridge and just when it is finished we have to go left and back along a grassy path that goes under the bridge, the access to the area is very easy. To the right we will find the Boix fountain and some walkways to cross the river and to the left the gorge.
On the paths that lead to the gorges, except for Duran's, they are not marked with yellow markings.
We go back and follow the greenway again, the next pool we find is that of Valls, we will find a signal that indicates where to get there and a wooden bridge that marks the beginning of the path. There are some wooden crossings that act as steps but you have to be careful because the road has some slopes.
The third pool we find is the Torre cave and the Mola pool. We also find a sign on the greenway that tells us where to take the path, we will do a few meters, cross a track and take the path to go to the pool on the other side of the track, by the bridge that indicates the entrance of the way. We will go down until we see the cave and turning left we will climb a little again to follow a path that will take us to the pool.
There is a last gorge that belongs to Sant Feliu which is the gorge of Duran or the quarry of Biel, to get there we will continue the greenway until we reach the cemetery of Les Planes d'Hostoles, we will find the crossing PH2 Bosc del Llober and we will take the route of the gorges of Les Planes d'Hostoles in the direction indicated by gorg de la Plana, we will reach this gorge first and following the path, we will reach the last gorg of Sant Feliu, that of Duran .
Please note that there is also a car park in Les Planes d’Hostoles, at the beginning of the Camí de Cogolls, from where we can take the opposite route.
