This itinerary between Teruel and the Valencian coast is currently the longest Greenway in Spain. Due to its length (204.15 km), it is divided into two sections. The province of Teruel is the main setting of this first section of the old Sierra Menera mining railway. This trip from the Jiloca Valley to the highlands of the Javalamabre and Gúdar mountains as far as the Palancia Valley, passing through the surroundings of the city of Teruel, is an itinerary full of surprises.
The Greenway follows the original kilometre signing of the mining railway, with the objective of preserving its history and unifying criteria in the two autonomous regions. Therefore, km 0 is located at the Ojos Negros Mines (Teruel) and km 204.15 in Puerto de Sagunto, with kilometre signs and posts indicating the distance along the way.
After two hours of driving from Valencia, we will be in Ojos Negros, where the route officially starts. Here we will see the remains of the old mining facilities and get to check out the mining village. The first part of the greenway is relatively flat, with a nice descent towards Santa Eulalia in the middle. Before that there is also a small detour around Peracense, the only part where the old railway hasn’t been adapted for cycling yet. Towards the end of the stage we will pass by Teruel airport and finish the day in Teruel. This will be a great place to stay as Teruel presents a very picturesque old town, and we are staying right in the middle of it.
The second stage will start with a long, but gentle uphill, as we make our way out of Teruel. This stage will feel more remote, as we make our way through pine woods. There are couple of merenderos – spots to stop with wooden tables and banks along the way, so we will have chance to stop for rest. The stage ends in a pretty village of Sarrión.
Final day will be the longest in terms of distance, but we will also have lots of downhill this day, since we go from the elevation of 920 meters all the way to sea level. That said, there will also be a chance to cycle just 40 kilometres and take the Cercanías train from Caudiel back to Valencia. Those who go the full distance will get to ride through the Valencian orange groves and pass by various little villages, finishing our 3-day journey in Sagunto.
