2nd of October
Let’s go to the edge of the province and hike along one of the most spectacular canyons in Valencia. The area is also a border between three kingdoms, as Aragón, Castilla la Mancha and Valencian Community come together here.
We’ll meet in Valencia in the parking lot on av. Aragón in front of Mestalla stadium and drive to Losilla (Aras de los Olmos). Once there, we’ll have a quick cup of coffee on a terrace of a bar before starting the hike.
The route is a combination of several marked trails. First, we’ll take the GR-37 path out of Losilla and start heading down. Soon, great views of the canyon will open down, as we descend to the Arcos river. By this point we will already be in Aragón, since the trail crosses the border. After a short ascent we will get to the area with several viewpoints which will allow us to contemplate the views of the canyon. We will also stop for lunch here. The return to Losilla will be made along the wide paths of PR-CV 130 trail. We will have a drink on a terrace after the hike and then return to Valencia.
