Route accesible with help and handbike.

Start walking at signpost G51 Sant Jaume de Llierca and head towards ‘La Resclosa’. Follow carrer Major, turn into carrer Àngela Brutau and continue as far as the signpost SJLL1 Zona Esportiva, where you should head for ‘La Resclosa, per Can Costica (40min)’.

Almost immediately you leave the houses of the village behind as you pick up the path that skirts a field before entering a holm oak wood. Continue through the wood, always following the yellow Itinerànnia waymarking. Soon you come out on to a small road, where you should turn left and walk on to signpost SJLL2 La Central Elèctrica. Here, turn left again and follow a dirt track that runs alongside the river Fluvià. In 10 minutes you will reach the weir, La Resclosa.

From here, continue along the dirt track alongside the river. Begin a short climb that will take you to signpost SJLL1 Zona Esportiva: from here on you just have to retrace your steps back to the village of Sant Jaume.
