Forests of Can Roca Els Blaus
With Montserrat as the background and on the edge of the Sierra de Rubió, we find this small area of typically Mediterranean landscape. Forests of white pine and ancient olive and carob cultivations surround the main value of this reserve: its geological heritage.ALL THE SPACES IN THE NETWORK

How can I get there?
The reserve can be accessed from Esparreguera, taking the Camí de Can Comelles street towards the Rubió i Montserrat mountain range. At the end of this street a paved path begins that goes through the farmhouse of Can Sant Joan and El Batlló and, finally, reaches the farmhouse of Can Roca. We leave it behind to cross an esplanade. At the end of this, on the right-hand side, we will find a forest track (Camí de les Bramones) closed to motorised vehicles, which gives access to the reserve.
We can also get there from Olesa, following the road towards the Colònia Sedó. Once we leave it behind, in a closed bend, we will find the junction with the stream of the Puig. Following it, we find the barrier where the forest path and area begin.
