The Bohilgues fluvial trail is one of the best hiking routes in Rincón de Ademuz. We will walk along the Bohilgues river from Ademuz to Vallanca and observe several waterfalls and multiple trees changing their colours along the way.
Rincón de Ademuz is a Valencian region located between the provinces of Teruel and Cuenca. It has an almost continental climate, with a marked difference between hot and dry summers and harsh winters. It is traversed from North to South by the Turia river forming a central valley, with a wide and fertile plain surrounded by the Sierra de Javalambre and the Albarracín mountain range.
The Bohilgues river, where this excursion takes place, is born in La Vega, in the municipality of Vallanca and joins the river Turia a few kilometres lower in Ademuz. It is an area of great botanical importance, highlighting the riverside forests, deciduous plants such as hackberries, poplars, ash trees, poplars etc. Its main section, known as el Hoz del Bohilgues, has been declared a micro-reserve of flora. Here you can see some small waterfalls of great beauty. The exceptional quality of its waters allows hikers to find otters, barbels, eels and native crabs.
