col near the top. Possible detour to climb the spectacular peak of Severino.
Seductively easy for the first hour along forest tracks. Then steep up the Camino Jalon mule path to the ruins below Severiño. Level track to a small plateau above the “Cave House”, followed by another steep mule path to “Rock Gates” col, (possible ascent of Severino. Described later) and then right to the Fort. Then a path to the Fort and on from there, a new (2010) path leading to the Picnic Area. The 30mins down the surfaced road to the cars could be avoided if enough cars were prepositioned at the picnic area.
The easy and medium optional walks are described as Walks 2 and 3 at the end.
The bars of Altea le Vieja are convenient for the end.
