Trip Planner: Europe / Spain / Catalonia / Province of Girona / Olot / La Fageda d'en Jorda
The mineral-rich soil of La Fageda d'en Jorda comes from a volcanic eruption that covered the area millennia ago. This disaster gave birth to new life, and now the nature reserve is home to an abundance of tree species. Hiking trails are marked and include rough wooden steps in steeper areas, but even with small inclines, the walks are low impact. Along the 1.5 km (0.93 mi) walk, you may come across a monolithic stone with an inscription of poetry at the base by Joan Maragall, a notable Spanish poet.

Delightful. We'll maintained paths, clearly signposted. Cool and refreshing from the sun. Weekend late lunchtime gets busier. Carpark very accessible, pay with credit card only.
Magical autumn experience in a beautiful part of the world. Try the circuit from la Fageda through the forests to the Santa Maria chapel in the first volcano then on to the second, Cosco, before heading back to the car. Takes about 4 hours with a break, best done early-mid November to experience all the colours of autumn in Olot!
Absolutely beautiful forest to get lost. This magical place is even prettier in autumn when the leaves fall and the color of the ground fades to red and golden. It’s free to visit and you can even start some hiking trails from there (the whole place is located in a volcanic parks area). Make sure not to support the guys with the pony rides since it’s animal abuse. Apart from that, don’t miss the chance to explore this place.
Beautiful place to visit. Best time of the year is autumn when you can enjoy colorfully the trees. You can either walk or rent a pony ride.
Beautiful and really accessible forest for walkers and cyclists alike. It has car park and there are several routes in the area that you may connect depending on how much time you have or the effort you may want to do.
