HIKING IN SOLSONÈS: EL CLOT DE VILAMALA
Here we propose and explain one of the hiking routes where the presence of a guide takes more sense, the Clot de Vilamala.
This is a hiking route that surely will not leave anyone indifferent, Vilamala is one of the most losing areas of the region of Solsonès, from the beginning, the route starts well backwards than most hiking routes where they start in plain, and we start the climb; With Vilamala this does not happen, because we only start walking in marked descent to enter in the bottom of its wild ravines, where we will find small footpaths and traces of old footpaths of extraction of coal allow us to move for this place so much loser, always, with a sensation of complete isolation, because when moving between risks, all that we will see and feel corresponds only to the nature and not to the human action.
When you see its conglomerate rocks with their peculiar shapes, you will surely come to the chief who says of Vilamala, is the mold of the mountain of Montserrat.
Vilamala has always been a magical place, a land of legends and mysteries facing to solve where also, not many years ago, there was still an important exploitation of charcoal of which, walking, we will find some traces, indications of old charcoal kilns, trees where the charcoal burners had sheltered or even last nights, and also we will find the remains of old roads excavated to the rock and old wooden footbridges of which now only remain the metal stakes that were used to facilitate the exit of the males loaded with charcoal.
