Although the ruins of the Castell itself are not impressive the walk to and from them is one of the most popular with our group of walkers. You start by crossing the shallow river Jalon, which generally has water in it here before it disappears underground further downstream. Then up a good old mule track to a pleasant resting place at a casita in an almond orchard followed by a mountain path to the “shoulder” Penyes Blanques, an outlier of Aixa. From here an optional detour to the col below the castle and on to the summit at 607meters.

Back to the “shoulder” and a steep zig zag down a rough path into the Barranco Fontdaixa to circle back to your car(s) along a mix of good paths and tracks alongside the river Jalon.
The path from the shoulder to the col d’Aixa could be muddy after heavy rain.
70% paths. 30% tracks.
