The valley between Puig Campana to the West and Ponoch to the North is very beautiful and, considering its proximity to the tourist areas, surprisingly unfrequented. The views of the mountains are excellent and from an unusual viewpoint. Puig Campana resembles a volcano while Ponoch reveals its massive bulk and stupendous cliffs. Climbers and walkers flock to the Collado del Pouet from Finestraat on their way to the summit or to circle Puig Campana but very few explore the tracks and paths to the S.E. below. Views to the south of Benidorm etc are interesting but distant enough to be unobtrusive when concentrating on the Mediterranean beyond.

Although this is a short walk it is steep. 90% on good tracks, some of which are muddy after heavy rain, and 10 % on a rough path.

DISTANCE 7-9 km - WALKING TIME 2 ¼ hrs. - ASCENT 460mtrs. – GRADE E
