Escaldes-Engordany


The Jovell Hill route is a circular trail that runs through the Escaldes-Engordany parish. It’s an easy route, ideal for the entire family.

This route runs along the Camí dels Matxos path, a cobblestone track that is part of the Engolasters hydroelectric path, providing you with views over the bottom of Madriu valley, which is the only one to maintain the traditional uses and landscapes. Hence, this valley was declared a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site in 2004.

This natural landscape is quite impressive, with forests of Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris) and white fir. The undergrowth is mostly made up by alpenrose (Rhododendron ferrugineum) and European blueberry Vaccinum myrtillus). These two shrubs, and especially the first one, seek the protective blanket of snow, so they tend to grow mostly on high ground shady spots, where the snow remains for longer. Other species which are present include pinemat manzanita (Arctostaphilos uva-usi) and common heather (Calluna vulgaris).

Starting point: pass by the Sant Miquel d’Engolasters church and shortly after passing kilometre 6 you’ll reach a small car park where you can leave your vehicle. Just in front of here you’ll see the starting point of the Water Springs Circuit. (42º 31' 2.8452", 1º 34' 15.3228")

For your safety, we recommend you do the routes at altitudes of over 1700 metres between the end of June and the end of September.

You will find further details of this and other routes in the Hiking guide Trails of Andorra.
