29th of October
This time we are going to Olba, to explore the valley made by the Mijares river. This is another great chance to enjoy Autumn colours and walk through various little villages in the area.
We’ll meet in Valencia in the parking lot on av. Aragón in front of Mestalla stadium and drive to Olba. Once there, we’ll have a cup of coffee on a terrace of a bar before starting the hike.
The route starts with a descent from the village, bringing us to the Mijares river. After crossing it, we will walk along it for a bit and then start the main ascent. As we hike uphill, we will get great views of the colourful valley, painted by poplar tree’s leaves changing their tone. In the second half of the hike, we will start going through various little villages which keep their traditional charm. We will also stop in one of them to have lunch and relax. The return is made along the Mijares river again, which we will need to cross barefoot towards the end of the hike. Once back in Olba, we will have a drink on a terrace after the hike and then return to Valencia.
