SERRELLA - Facheca - Famorca Circuit

This is a circular walk that starts on the North side or the Sierra de Serrella with a steep climb up to Font Roja, situated at the head of the picturesque Barranco Hondo , then crosses to the south side and passes below the summit of Pla de la Casa to reach and traverse the head of the Barranco del Moro with splendid views down to the village of Facheca. You then continue on the south side passing below the Pico de Serrella before the final climb up to the Malla del Llop ridge with magnificent views in all directions. Traverse the ridge back to the summit of Pico de Serrella before descending a little to an ancient snow well. Follow  an old mule path which zig zags steeply down the mountain back to the quaint village of  Famorca. The walk ends with a good leg stretcher along a pleasant, tranquil track back to Facheca. This final  2 kilometer stretch can be eliminated if a car is spotted at Famorca before starting the walk.
