11th of September
Let’s visit one of the most scenic pool of Canal de Navarrés region – Charcos de Quesa. We will hike the surrounding area to get the panoramic views of the valley and combine it with a dip in the fresh water at the end of the route.
We’ll meet in Valencia, in front of Mestalla stadium (the parking lot on av. Aragón) and drive to Quesa. Once there, we’ll have a coffee on a terrace and drive a bit more to the start of the hike. We’ll hike up the hill at first to be able to fully enjoy the views of the valley and the ravine. Then we’ll walk the trail around and down the river to finally get to Charcos de Quesa. At the end of the hike we’ll have a chance to stop for rest, swim and have lunch next to the pool. After that we’ll have a drink in Quesa and return to Valencia.
