Description

The Path of Mont Reials and Rocafort

( Hiking Routes Mallorca)

This circular route consists of an attractive ascent via the Mont-Reials path and a descent via that of Rocafort joined by a stretch of the Castelló path. Both routes are considered as some of the most elaborate cobbled paths in the whole of Serra de Tramuntana as well as constituting one of the routes which best defines the landscape of the Sóller valley passing above the Soller – Palma veteran train line.

Itinerary

The point of departure starts at the petrol station which joins Sóller to its port (km 30.6) and a mere 10 minutes away from the centre of Sóller. Just a few hundred  meters away on the left one can complete the route by visiting the Balearic Museum of Natural Sciences,as well as the adjoining Botanical Garden of Sóller.

From the petrol station on the other side of the road an asphalted signposted road starts as the Es Rost path which one should take. The asphalt gives way to an earth track and one crosses the stream of Cinc Ponts or of Mont-Reials thanks to some stones which ease the way. In the middle of an olive grove the path reappears now with excellent cobbling with steps and bordered by terraces and walls. Getting over the veteran train track above one of its tunnels one immediately comes across the detour which one has to take.

The Es Rost path continues straight on whilst the route describes bend on the left via the path of Mont-Reials. Once on this path one continues to gain height leaving behind two crossing gates and again flanking the veteran train tracks. One goes round the houses of Mont-Reials with the next goals being another wall and another cart track as well as a shed.

Finally one meet the Castelló path. Turning left one follows this route until coming to the Rocafort path. In this area both asphalted and bridle paths are traversed. A sign shows you that the Rocafort path starts, following some bends at the start of the steep descent. Here one can enjoy the spectacular landscape of Sóller and almost all its environment.

One loses height rapidly and again cross the train tracks this time via a stone bridge Puente de dos Ojos with an iron wainscot. The olive trees gradually give way to the citrus ones and the path becomes asphalted concluding in a few minutes at the same spot where this attractive route began.
