This is an allied walk to the medium Tossal del Grau Circuit. (A). With the addition of other steeper, higher and rougher paths. The walk links in with part of the well known Circuit of Puig Campana but going anti clockwise reveals different views. The valleys around Tossal del Grau are very beautiful and surprisingly unfrequented. Views are excellent. Puig Campana resembles a volcano from this direction and Ponoch hints at its massive bulk and shear cliffs.
My purpose is to pass on these walks so you can enjoy them as much as I have. I want you to use them freely for non commercial purposes. Perhaps a donation to your favourite charity?
The normal hazards in mountains apply but generally the conditions are benign, some cold and wet in winter, possibly the heat in summer is more dangerous. My personal advice is not to leave the paths as ground can be covered with spiky bushes concealing ankle breaking rocks. By "road" I mean surfaced, by "track" an unsurfaced one,(often rough). Paths vary from beautifully engineered mozarabic "muleways" to very rough hunters or goat paths. Updates are welcome.I am very grateful to Terry, my wife, who has helped to explore all the paths and often helped to clear them.
Of course I owe much to my predecessors, especially my early mentor, Cristl. Batnick,who helped to found the excellent Costa Blanca Mountain Walking group. Also the early explorers, Roger Massingham, Bob Stansfield, (all on the web), and Eric Wright,(www.openlibrary.org/b/OL11958879M).Many walks are made possible by the generosity of the landowners, especially the Spanish, who allow walking on their land,please treat their property with respect.
Being computer illiterate this website would not exist but for the enthusiastic, energetic and expert work of Jean and Bob Hall. Many thanks to them. Their website ,which complements this one, plus, is: www.costablancamountainwalks.com.
