By the Drova fountain (Font de la Drova) (380 m) you find
signs for the Cova del Parpallo, Font de la Mongeta and Alt de l'Aldaia, all of
them pointing left. The track takes you to a crossroads with signposts (2min)
(380 m). Turn right to a wide path signposted to Pla de les
Simes. Notice that this path starts from the right hand side of the iron gate.
The path ascends through olive groves and lush natural lands
to the Collado dels Cargols (20min) (510 m). In five minutes, you start walking
uphill again. The Barranco de la Selleta is on your left.
When the barranco gets lower, the path starts sloping gently
into it (45min) (630 m).
In the Simes plain (Pla de les Simes), you encounter signposts
(1h) (650 m). Fork right for the Alt de l'Aldaia. At the next fork (1h05min)
(685 m), go right again, for Alt de l'Aldaia and Sima de l'Aldaia. Do not go
left for Pla de la Nevereta. Within a minute, you have a signpost pointing
straight ahead to the Sima de l'Aldaia and another one pointing left to the Alt
de l'Aldaia. The route goes to the Sima de l'Aldaia.
If you want to visit the Alt de l'Aldaia (750 m), it takes
about ten minutes to walk to the top of the hill. You have a good outlook over Barx,
Penya Migdia and the Valldigna valley. Return back to the path that goes to the Sima
The cleft of Aldaia (1h09min) (695 m), which you find on the
left hand side of the path, is 113 meters deep.
Return from the cleft back to the signpost pointing to Pla de
la Nevereta (1h13min) (685 m), and start following the signs for the Nevereta
plain. You find the next signpost within a minute, and the subsequent one in
twenty minutes. At both forks, keep right. The path has become partly overgrown
with weeds and bushes.
The path descends to the Nevereta plain, where it meets
another path (2h15min) (530 m). Go right for Barranco de la Manesa. Follow the Barranco de la Manesa for half an
hour in a landscape with a wide
variety of plants. Curving first towards Penya
Migdia it then turns left to a pine forest and slopes down to a
sand road (3h05min) (400 m).
Turn right towards Barx. At the junction of
Benita fountain (Font de la Benita) (3h08min),
turn right again, and start following the Drova signs. By the next signs
(3h13min) (355 m), cross a road to a track. The track crosses three roads and
comes to the Font de la Drova (3h30min).
