Of the three routes that lead to the top of the It montgó, this is the shortest duration. The one that departs from Jesús Pobre lasts about 3 hours 45 minutes, and the one that leaves from Camí de la Colònia, about 3 hours. However, the route from the Dénia Shooting Range to the top has an estimated duration of 1 hour 45 minutes. Read on to find out all the details.
Next you have an index with all the points that we are going to deal with.
Route data and layout
We will start the route at the firing range, which is accessed by a dirt track from the CV-736. Here's how to get there.
The beginning of the route is marked next to the car parks. Continue along the path and you will come to a wide track, and keep right towards Montgó. The gravel track leads to a stony path that begins to zigzag upwards. In the last section, the path is complicated because it develops on the limestone ridge before reaching the top: here you will go through large slopes and areas where you will have to help your hands to climb some rocks.
This path is outlined in gray in the following image, which you can zoom in and move in the Cartographic viewer of l'Institut Cartogràfic Valencià.
We will travel almost 4 kilometers, 3874 meters. A cumulative elevation gain of 550 meters is saved.
As we have said, the estimated duration is one hour and forty-five minutes.
It is considered to be high difficultyEspecially for the final stretch on the rock ridge at the top.
What can we see
In addition to the impressive views, with a bit of luck you can enjoy the flight of the Bonelli's Eagle or the Peregrine Falcon.
