D1. Getting close to the mountains

  • Distance (Km): 37.33
  • Incline (m): 1300
  • Time: 3h30'
  • Classification: Red
  • Depart from: Benicàssim (Plaça Església)


This route allows for you to directly get to know the Desert de les Palmes mountain range.

We set off from Benicàssim, and within barely two kilometres we will already be in full ascent of the Oropesa mountain range, which we will then begin descend via a large track and with technical points . This will leave us in the Miravet gorge, which we will climb until the beginning of the ascent to Mount Bartolo on the East.  A paved pathway, which then turns to a steep ramp until conquering this giant, rewards us with its breath-taking views.

We will descend via its southern slope, which is a quick path which will take us to the foot of this location in just a few short minutes. From there, we will head back to Benicàssim again.
