This is an extended version of our Castell Granadella Circuit. It starts at Cumbre Del Sol, elevation of 190 meters, with a pleasant flat track walk before descending on a surfaced (concrete) track to reach the costal path.( Although we prefer to avoid surfaced roads this one is all downhill and offers the opportunity to focus on the superb views instead of our feet.) The beautiful costal path is a little exposed in places but a couple of chains have been placed to aid the walker. A side trip to visit the ruins of Castell Granadella (a horseshoe shaped building, which was once part of the Valencia Costal defence, that dates back to 1739) is followed by a steep climb to the Mirador de Levant. After this rather arduous climb we descend once again first by track and then a nice path to reach the bottom of a Barranco . A long stretch along the barranco floor before a sting-in-the-tail climb out and back to our outward track.
