By the sign of Callosa d'En Sarriá (245 m) you find a narrow asphalt road
that goes downhill to the medlar (nispero) groves. You are circled by the
mountains of Aitana, Serrella and Aixorta. The River of Guadalest together with
the track you are heading to runs in the middle of a green
belt. Ignore all side roads and tracks,
until you come to a crossroads where the asphalt ends (15min) (155 m). Go right,
and start following the river that flows on your right.
When the track forks (18min), go right.
Walk to the end of the track, and
cross the river (22min) (160 m). There are stepping stones in the river, but
most probably you get your feet wet. On the other side of the river, go left.
Take a concrete walkway uphill to the right (24min), and, above a building,
bend left on a sand track (28min) (190 m). Keep left at the next two forks. The
track peters out into a path (45min) (180 m). The vegetation gets so dense that
the path is hardly visible, but if you keep going on, the path soon joins a
The track bends to the right and crosses the river (53min) (190 m). Almost
immediately after that, it forks. On you right you see a house. Take the left
fork and ford the river. On the other side of the river, the track turns into a
path, which leads to an old dam (1h) (195 m). Cross the dam wall from the left
On the other side you find a track. This track crosses the river two times
before it forks under a bridge (1h15min) (215 m). The left uphill fork takes you
to the C-3313 road (1h17min) (230 m). Turn left, walk some 30 meters, and turn
right uphill on a narrow paved road before the bridge that crosses the Guadalest
The road passes the Gines village and meets an asphalt road (1h35min) (340
m). Turn left uphill along the Ferragets hill. Soon you see the Bernia mountain and the sea on your left. The
Ponoch mountain and eastern slopes of
Aitana rise in front of you. Later on, you
have the Aixorta and Serrella mountains on your right. Also you can see the
Guadalest castle set high up on a pinnacle and carved out of a mountain top.
After passing a big round water tank on the right hand side of the road, look
for a track on your left. Take this track (1h55min) (450 m), marked by blue
arrows that you find painted on both sides of the track.
When you come to a crossroads (2h) (445 m), go straight ahead. In a minute,
the track forks. Take the left fork. Now you have Bernia in front of you. Ignore
all uphill paths and tracks. Also, at the next fork, go left downhill (2h10min)
When you come to a T-junction (2h20min) (320 m), turn right. At the first
fork after the junction (2h22min), keep right, do not bend left downhill. At the
second fork (2h24min), go left, at the third (2h32min) (320 m), go right
downhill to a pine forest, and at the fourth (2h38min) (280 m), go left downhill.
Soon the track turns into a path (2h41min) (260 m) revealing the Callosa d'En Sarriá
and Sierra del Ferrer in front of
you. When you come to a track
(2h48min) (190 m), turn right. In a minute, you meet a T-junction. Turn left on
an asphalt road. Cross the river (2h55min) (145 m), keep left, and at the
crossroads go uphill straight ahead to the C-3313 (3h05min).
