Coll Formic - Matagalls.
The Matagalls is one of the highest summits of the Montseny with its 1697 meters. The ascent from Coll Formic is a classic one of the excursions by the bulk of the Montseny and is indicated for persones of all the ages and physical training conditionses. We propose a route that begins in Coll Formic where we will leave the car and we will go towards the Matagalls following red and white marks of GR. 5.2. The return we can later do it in the direction of the source of matagalls and towards the monastery of St. Segimón.

Route: We initiated the walked one in the parking that there is in Coll Formic, we crossed the highway and we raised to the way direction great masía that is seen from the highway. We continued by the main way until finding, in a curve, a footpath marked with the white and red signals of GR. 5.2. This way will take untill the top to us of the Matagalls that we will have at sight at many moments.
The slope we can do it taking first in the direction of the source of Matagalls that is hidding and surrounded by trees. Once rested the forces we walked direction of the monastery of St. Segimón following the crest of the mountain that is over the source. We will arrive at St. Segimón by St. Miquel dels Barretons that is just on our objective. It must lower with well-taken care of since it is a little difficult section.
Once made the visit to the monastery that has been being in restoration for many years, we will follow the track that accedes to him to return to Coll Formic.
