Once you get to the main carpark you will see there is a children’s play area and a BBQ and picnic area, then you can choose which path you would like to take for your trek around the mountain, Most of the paths are quite wide and not too steep and there are various paths to follow with the most amazing views looking down onto Calpe and beyond. If its a really clear day you can just see the island of Ibiza in the distance.
There is also a camping area and a circular route which has signposts on the paths so you can follow the trails, you can also follow the trail up to the summit which is 586 meters high, this is a journey of approximately 10 km and take about 4 hours.
Take in Lovely forest and woodland area and wide footpaths for you to follow and take in the breathtaking views, there are a few water fountains on the way and an old church with picnic areas.
In the hot summer months recommended early morning or late afternoon as it gets very hot up there. But a great day out for all the family.
