The route starts at Flix, on the other side of the boat crossing (1), on the left bank (according to the direction of the waters). You start walking along the river. When you reach the picnic area under the poplar grove (2), it is advisable to jump on the path above. The path below ends without a way out. You walk along crop fields until the pass narrows. The path is called the Aumaec, which is what the people of Flix and Ascó call the rocky escarpments on the river bank; an inheritance from the Arabic al-maḍīk meaning ‘gorge’.
It passes by the Vingalis pumping station (3) which collects water for agricultural irrigation. The path continues with small gradients to adapt to the slopes of the mountain and crosses areas with magnificent specimens of white pine (Pinus halepensis), absolutely extraordinary. The route passes through the Nature Reserve of the wild fauna of the banks of the Ebro in Flix. In addition to being able to see orchids, depending on the time of year and time of day, bird watching can become a spectacle.
Later, the path narrows and regains its original appearance, reaching the remains of the abandoned quarry of Boca Bovera (4). From this place, sailing downstream, in the 14th century, blocks were built for the construction of several chapels in the cathedral of Tortosa and, two centuries later, to build the portal.
You soon reach the ravine of the river Cana (5). A new wooden jar helps to cross it comfortably. The section that would allow to complete the turn to the meander, between the river of the Cana and Flix, still is not conditioned nor signalized (it is necessary to leave to the highway to save a private property). The most prudent option is to go back and enjoy the walk again.
«Walking through the countryside, where the elements of nature gently stimulate the activity of the mind and with its variations keep it immersed in a pleasant game, promotes the relationship with oneself in an enormous way, and, by the way, without the painful character that in the long run permeates the introspection between the four walls of a room ». This was written by Karl Gottlo Schelle in The Art of Walking, a small work published in 1802. Perhaps this German, ahead of other compatriots, had already tasted the pleasure of walking near the meander of Flix.
