Ruta de la Pedra en Sec
Sport and Leisure - Hiking / Rambling
|The project "Ruta de la Pedra en Sec" was started in 1995 by the area of Economical Promotion and Occupation of the Consell de Mallorca with the aim of combining the tourist development of the towns of the "Serrra de Tramuntana" with the preservation of one of the most valuable natural spaces in Mallorca, by the restoration of the paths and stone constructions (dry stone walls, charcoal burners' huts, snow houses and terraces), that are part of the landscape of the "Serra" and part of our cultural and natural inheritance.
The route follows the old network of rural roads. Starting at Andratx, it goes across 90 kilometres of mountains until it arrives at Pollença. The path goes through 11 towns and it is structured in 7 stages with a refuge at the end of each of them. The Consell has already rehabilitated most of the roads and in the near future the "Federació Balear de Muntanya" will homologate the route as a Long Distance Path. One of the 8 refuges that will be rehabilitated is already working, the refuge Tossals Verds (Escorca), and shortly the refuge of the telegraphic station of Muleta (Sóller) will also open. On the other hand, the works at la Trapa (Andratx) and Son Amer (Escorca) have also started.
The "Ruta de la Pedra en Sec" is an ideal alternative for walkers and for all those tourists that shun the sun and beach offer and prefer the attractiveness of the marvellous natural spaces of "Serra de Tramuntana".(Febuary 2000
