From Amposta to the heart of the Ebro Delta through fascinating landscapes
The route starts at the Amposta Tourist Office (km0).
With the river Ebre on your left, continue along Avinguda de Sant Jaume. After 150m, cross the bridge over the N-340 road and turn right towards Sant Carles de la Ràpita, where after 400m you turn left, leaving the tree-lined road and after 60m continue along a dirt track that starts on your right (km 1.4).
After 2.5km, turn right over a bridge, taking a large eucalyptus tree next to a farm as a reference point (km 3.9).
After 600m, turn left onto a dirt track, which after 1.1km leads to the Ullals de Baltasar (km 5.6).
Once you arrive at the Ullals de Baltassar, continue ahead until you come to a house where the irrigation channel of the Anglès starts (km 5.9). Then, continue ahead with the irrigation ditch on the left hand side and the road of the maritime canal that goes from Amposta to Sant Carles de la Rápita behind you.
After 1.2km, turn left and after 100 m turn right, along a dirt track parallel to a drainage ditch. During the 2.4km stretch, you can see the Montsià mountain range, until you reach the TV-3406 road, which links Sant Carles de la Rápita with Sant Jaume. Cross the road and after 500m there is a path to turn left and join the start of the Encanyissada cycle path (km 10.5).
Continuing along the Encanyissada cycle path, after 2.5km you come to the Carreter stalk (km 13) and after a further 1km you come to the Casa de Fusta, the information centre of the Delta de l’Ebre Natural Park.
From the Casa de Fusta you return along exactly the same route but in the opposite direction.
