From the starting point your destination towers above you with its ruined Castillo just visible. But the easy start up track and path gives you your “second wind” and superb views of the Guadalest Reservoir. Then the steep path ascending the rugged Barranco de les Coves, with its occasionally gushing stream and rock scrambles, ends at a fuente. To the West rises the imposing Barranco de la Canal de les Coves with its two parallel spines of upturned strata leading to Malla del Llop, (Alt 1357m). To the East the spectacular peak of the Castillo now looms appreciably closer.
There is another 300m climb with the reward of the stunning 360-degree views from the Castillo.
