|Start the walk at the Olbis fountain (Font
dels Olbis) (580 m) by continuing the narrow asphalt
road uphill. Pass the signposts on your right. Green hills dominate
the scene. The Moorish
steps are clearly visible on the northwestern slopes of the Costeras
Baixes. When the road bends sharply left, you see the Migdia
mountain range on your side and the Montgo mountain in front of you.
Soon after that, when the road bends right, you find the sign for the Pass
of Garga (Collado de Garga) on your left (15min) (680 m). Take this
When the path comes to a track by a house, turn right
uphill, and a
minute later, climb back on the path that forks left. At the top (25
min) (765 m) you find three signposts. The views encompass the plains
of Cocoll (Alts del Cocoll), and, behind it, the Aixorta
mountain (Serra dAixorta) in the south and southwest. The
mountains of Aitana
and Serrella are on
their western side. The Gorge
of Inferno splits the plains of Laguart in the north.
Turn left for Cavall Vert. The
path follows the rolling ridge of the
Penyó mountain (Serra del Penyó) to the east. Soon after the first
hump (790 m), the path forks (33min) (785 m). Turn right downhill. The
left fork leads you to a cross which you can see uphill.
Soon the path starts ascending again. After the next hump (45 min)
(830 m), you can see Benichembla
on your right in the eastern part of the Pop valley (Vall de Pop). In
front of you rises Cavall Vert. Soon you find Benimaurell,
Fleix and Campell on your
left in the Laguart valley (Vall de Laguart).
In the Denia valley
the mountain range of Segária
stretches out towards the sea. Between the mountain ranges of Carrasca
and Migdia you see the coast line
all the way to Cullera.
The eminences get lower and the ridge narrower. Now you are walking
mostly over the bedrock. Keep an eye on the white-yellow waymarks.
Glyptography made by nature frames the views over the valleys.
When you encounter a shady rock wall where the route seems to come to
a dead end (1h20min) (730 m), circle this splendid picnic spot by going
The path forks by Cavall Vert (1h45min) (695 m).
The right fork, marked by splodges of red paint, leads to the top,
but climbing there is very demanding. Although the partly vertical
rockwall has footholds and handholds made by nature, climbing equipment
The walking route, marked by white-yellow waymarks, continues left
downhill. First the path descends to a
junction (1h50min) (605 m). There
are two paths on the opposite side of the track. Take the path
left with the white-yellow waymark. At the next junction, turn right
(2h) (555m), and at the subsequent one, turn left (2h05min) (530 m).
The narrow asphalt
road which goes through the almond
and cherry groves passes
first a sign for the Gel fountain (Font del Gel) on your right, then the
fountain of Penyo (Font de la Penyo) (2h10min) (535 m) and comes to a
wider asphalt road by the Camusot fountain (Font dels Camusot) (2h25min)
(500 m). Turn left to Benimaurell
and return to the Olbis fountain (2h45min).
