AITANA RANGE Font del Arbre Circuit

A high level walk dominated by the escarpment of Aitana to the S. and with a superb vista over a circle of mountains in all other directions. The start is at the pretty, well watered, and wooded, picnic area at Font del Arbre, which you reach by driving along the spectacular surfaced mountain road from Confrides. Confrides itself is a pretty unspoilt village with the good Hostal and bar of “El Piraneo”.

By starting the walk at 1,170meters you get directly into the mountains but at this altitude there is occasional snow and ice and in winter it can be very cold. In hot sunny weather there is enough shade.
The basic walk is easy and there is an optional detour that brings it up to medium and lets you relate to, and see from above Font de Partagas and its surfaced road up from Benifato.
The basic walk is 100% on good tracks and the detour of the medium walk is all on stony paths. Tracks can get very sticky after rain or melting snow.
