As the vegetation becomes more sparse the views of the mountains open up. Continuing fairly steeply the summit is soon in our sights. From the top there are superb panoramic views. Having taken in the views our descent begins with a long undulating traverse on the wide ridge of the Muntanya Gran.

Total ascent: 1,300 feet (390m)

In summary: A circular walk using a mix of rough paths, tracks and quiet roads traversing the slopes of Penya Alt to Col de Garga and returning to Benimaurell. Our route takes us through the village heading towards the ridge of Cavall Verde. Leaving the route to the ridge we join a mountain path traversing under the main ridge and taking us west towards Col De Garga. At a low point in the ridge our route takes us to the far side of the Cavall Verde offering superb views into the valley hidden from the view at the hotel by the mountains. Continuing to Col De Garga there may be the opportunity for refreshments before returning to Benimaurell and the hotel on a quiet country road.

Highlight: A traverse high above the village with great views into the valley behind Cavall Verde.

 

Option 2 – Cavall Verde Ridge

Distance: 7 miles (11km)

Total ascent: 1,400 feet (420m)

In summary: The ridge is in constant view from the hotel and considered one of the highlights of the local mountain walks. From the village we initially follow a concrete track before joining a steep mountain path leading to the ridge proper. Now our route turns west as we experience a fantastic traverse with great views in all directions. Descending from the ridge we’ll call at Col DE Garga where there may be the chance of refreshments. From here we make our way to the traverse used earlier by the E party and wind our way back to the hotel.

Highlight: A visit to a spectacular mountain ridge with views from the top, down to the village of Benimaurell and across to the sea.

Day 10

Friday 29 May 2020

Visit the Barranc d Inferno referred to by the locals as their own Grand Canyon.

Option 1 – Barranc d’Tamaborino and Presa d’Isbert

Distance: 4½ miles (7km)

Total ascent: 1,300 feet (390m)

In summary: Our walk today starts on the outskirts of Campell and includes an interesting visit to the Leprosy hospital at Fortilles where there is a small information centre. After the visitor centre there is a short walk round the peaceful hospital grounds. On route we pass through a tunnel built to give access for the construction of the Presa de Isbert dam. The views coming out of the tunnel are great as we continue into the narrowest part of the gorge. The dam lies between the very narrow walls of the gorge and adds to the dramatic scenery. Leaving the dam we ascend out of the gorge taking a slightly different route to arrive in Campell where we can have refreshments whilst awaiting our coach back to the hotel.

 Highlight: A visit to the somewhat unique Leprosy hospital and a dramatic Barranc.

Option 2 – Barranc d’Inferno and the waves of stone

Distance: 9 miles (14½km)

Total ascent: 1,800 feet (540m)

In summary: The locals refer to Barranc d Inferno as their own Grand Canyon, perhaps not so grand but very impressive never the less. We walk from the hotel towards the nearby village of Fleix and just before the village we leave the quiet road starting our descent into the barranc. The steep zig zagging and stepped route is a fine example of the many Mozarabic trails in the area dating back centuries. Passing through a natural rock arch and finally arriving in the valley bottom we can admire the waves of stone formed by the river. We must now retrace our many steps back up to the road taking in different panoramas. Our route back to the hotel is via quiet roads and lanes.

Highlight: The spectacular Barranc d Inferno one of the special attractions of the area.
