|Start out by taking the track with
white-yellow waymarks (780 m), and immediately turn left on a path. Keep
following the waymarks. The path crosses a narrow asphalt road (5min)
(805 m). On the other side of the road, fork right on a track. The house
by the fork stays on your left. The track starts ascending and turns
into a path that climbs a steep
slope. Soon the path disappears and you
walk on a bedrock. Follow the waymarks all the way up. On your way,
ignore a path that forks right, and, when you see a white-yellow cross
on your right, go left, following the white-yllow stripes (10min) (865
At the top, the ascend becomes more gentle (15min) (900 m), and you
find a clear path that dives into a pine forest.
The path ends by the ruins of a house called Casa de la Foyadoredes
(40min) (1095 m), where you find a number of signs. Go straight ahead
for Font Roja on a sand

oaks, maples, ashes and other leaf trees. Ignore the path that forks
right (50min) (1145 m).
When you reach the ruins of a house called Mas del Serrallo (1h05min)
(1225 m), go right towards the top of Menejador following the sign for

Coloma ice house (Cava Coloma) (1h15min) (1315 m) on the
right hand side of the road. This round building has a diameter of 13
meters and is 17 meters deep. In a clear day the vista extends all the
way to the square shaped fort of Cocentaina and the reservoir of
Beniarrés behind it.
Before reaching the top of Menejador, the road forks by a water tank
(1h30min) (1305 m). Both forks lead to the top (1h40min) (1350 m).
Return from the top back to the water tank (1h50min), and take the path
left downhill. If you did not climb to the top, the path is on your
The path descends along the Barranco de
la Fabrica to a
well (2h02min) (1225 m), which has no water. Soon after the well you
come to a ice house called Pou de la Noguera (2h07min) (1220 m) with a
diameter of 12 meters and depth of more than 11 meters.
The path descends to the bed of Barranco de las Cimas (2h15min) (1185
m), and then ascends to the plain of Canyon, where you find the
ice house (Cava de Simarro) (2h20min) (1225 m). This ice house is almost
15 meters deep and has a diameter of more than 16 meters.
Continue on the path avoiding the route PRV-127 on you left. Soon you
reach the ice house of Canyon (Pou del Canyo) (2h25min) (1235 m). Close
to it, you find signs. Go straight on for San Pascual, Ibi and Mas del
Canyon. The path turns into a track.
When you reach the ruins of Mas del Canyon (2h35min) (1165 m), fork
left for Ibi. The track turns into a path. Stay all the way on the path
avoiding the track on its right. The path descends gently towards Ibi,
and comes to the beginning of a narrow asphalt road (3h25min) (835 m).
Continue on this road to Ibi, and turn right downhill by the corner of
the water plant (Deposito de Aguas Potables) (3h33min). Walk on the
Subida Depositio to the CV-801 and return to the starting point of the
