The Aldaia Trail (Barx)

8th of December

This trail gives us the best opportunity to contemplate the magnificence of the Monduver massif, hiking up to the peak right behind it. At the same time, the coastal views with everpresent Montgo in the background, make for a great contrast.
We will meet in Valencia in the parking lot on av. Aragón in front of Mestalla stadium and drive to Barx. Once there we will have a coffee on a terrace and start the hike. There is a nice flat section in the beginning, turning into a gentle ascent with views of el Montgo in between two hills. As we go up, more and more of the coast becomes visible. At the end of the climb the main sight, el Monduver peak, will present itself to us. We will stop here for lunch. The return is along another trail, with surprising quantities of vegetation. We will have a drink on a terrace after the hike and return to Valencia.
