You can park in the car park at the Espai Polivalent (Av. Narcís Arnau, 1), where you will see the signpost G156 Les Planes d’Hostoles and head for Sant Feliu de Pallerols along the old railway line ‘El Carrilet’ that once connected Olot to Girona. Almost immediately, you cross a bridge, Pont de Can Poeti, over the river Brugent. Once over, your come to the signpost PH1 Pont de Can Poeti. Continue along the old railway line – now a bike lane – as far as signpost G83 Carril Bici Les Planes. Here, turn right and climb to signpost G82 La Casica, where you should take the left-hand path that will take you to the road to Cogolls. Follow the yellow Itinerànnia waymarking along the road as far as signpost PH3 Carretera de Cogolls. Here, turn right on to a forest track that crosses a stream, Riera de Cogolls. Walk in the same direction as the stream until you come on your left to a flight of wooden steps that will take you quickly to Molí dels Murris swimming pool.
Return along the same path.

Although this is the route that you will find signposted by Itinerànnia from the Espai Polivalent, another car park has now been set up at the beginning of the Cogolls road, is much closer if you want to go to the gorg del Molí dels Murris. From this car park you can follow the route in reverse, you have to go along the road towards the cemetery, past the cemetery you can go to the right and follow the greenway, at the junction G82 La Casica, you will leave the greenway and continue along the ctra. of Cogolls until arriving at the crossing that takes to the pool.

ATENTION

The regulations for uses and access to the gorges of Les Planes have changed, during periods of high influx, you will have to buy a day ticket online to be able to go to the gorges, as the capacity has been limited to 200 people per day in the protected natural space.
You can buy the ticket on the booking page https://www.fundacioemys.org/gorgslesplanes/

We recommend that you buy it in advance because they run out very quickly

When you arrive at the pool you will find an informant who will tell you the capacity available in that pool or in the other pools of the Planes d'Hostoles (only in periods of restrictions)
