Here's a report of our weekend trip to Rincón de Ademuz. During this trip we have explored the trails which run along the three main rivers of the region - Turia, Ebrón and Bohilgues.
The Nacimiento del Río Tuéjar (the source of the Tuéjar River) is one of the most beautiful routes in Valencia. It was the perfect time to visit the river as the April rains meant there was more water than usual for this time of year. Along the route we passed natural beauty spots before hiking … Continue reading Nacimiento del Río Tuéjar

Some would probably say it's madness to go exploring the gorges of Alicante province after such heavy rains we had during the week, but the spirit of the group was strong this weekend, so here is the report on how our adventure went.
Our hike started from the town of Montanejos and followed the GR7 before we separated and continued following the Bojera trail around the Barranco Maimona ravine. The Bojera trail follows the box valley on either side with steep ascents and descents to cross the river that cuts through the canyon. We ended the trip by … Continue reading Barranco Maimona and Fuente de los Baños, Montanejos
