Maintenance of the footpaths

Paths are necessary both for the management of the forest and for the hiking activities. And our rich network of traditional paths is the reflection of hundreds of years of agricultural activity in the Tramuntana mountains.

Maintenance of the network of paths includes: waste collection, clearing of fallen trees and rocks, water management to avoid erosion, installation of signs and informative panels, etc.

The work required to maintain a sensitive humanized environment like that of the Muntanya del Voltor is neverending. Paths and surrounding areas suffer constant strain so in order to minimize the degradation of the area please remember to follow the signs, never leave the paths and do not take shortcuts as this compacts the ground contributing to erosion and negatively affecting the flora and the fauna.
