About Mola de Colldejou Plateau

Mola de Colldejou is a mountain plateau in the Llaberia natural park. There are multiple routes in this park and this circular route starts and ends at the Marçá-Falset Renfe station, 2 hours from Barcelona. The walking route is 18km long and mostly comprises walking on rural roads and forestall tracks. There is a section of steep uphill that traverses a rocky ravine to reach the top of the plateau. People who suffer from vertigo may have issues with this section of the route.

Once on the top of the Mola de Colldejou plateau there are spectacular views of the Llaberia natural park and surrounding ridges of wind turbines. In the corner of the plateau is the ruined Mola de Colldejou castle, probably part of the visual semaphore network that was used to communicate pre-invention of the telegraph/telephone.

Visiting Mola de Colldejou Plateau

Allow 7-9 hours to complete the route.

A MEDIUM level of fitness is required. It took me 7 hours to complete but I did stop a lot to take photos! Also sturdy and grippy hiking boots are also required on the ravine section of the trail.

NOTE: Before planning to do this route check the weather for the town of Reus or Tarragona to verify that there is no rain or high winds forecast. The first time when I completed this route was with winds gusting up to 100km/h on the plateau and it was a little dangerous along the cliff top path and ravine ascent.

Where to eat and drink

What to take with you for Mola de Colldejou Plateau

I pack for wind when doing this hike because it is along a ridge line.

I recommend 3 to 4 litres of water because there is nowhere to top up along the route.
