Camí de la Colònia-Jesús Pobre
START. Sanctuary: "Ermita del Pare Pere".
LENGTH: 6.5 km (only one-way). Linear Route
LEVEL DIFFERENCE: 230 m
DURATION: 1 hr. 40 min.
We ascend on the road: Camí de la Colònia and then turn right at the fork in the direction of Racó del Bou. At the end of this road, we take the ascending path on the right.
We ascend in a shady area, which winds back and forth between old terraces at heights of 100 m above the Camí de la Colònia.
The trail continues to the foot of the impressive Penya de l’Àguila until we reach the top of the hill: El Serrallo, where we can contemplate an amazing view of the Southern slopes of Montgó. We take the path on the left and travel approx. 200 m in a mild ascent until we reach the route's highest point, we take the path called "pista del repetidor". In this sunny area, we begin a comfortable and pleasant descent to Jesús Pobre where we find more old non-irrigated terraces.
We cross the Jesús Pobre road to Xàbia through a pine woods area, and continue along Assagador de Cabanes until we turn right at the road called Camí de les Basses to arrive at Jesús Pobre.
ATTRACTIONS: Part of the route travels through a woody area, where white pines, mastic shrubs, fig trees, carob and wild olive trees predominate to reveal the former agricultural uses of this mountainous terrain.
Once we arrive at the hill: Coll del Serrallo, we can enjoy splendid views of two mountain slopes and nearby valleys. In front, we can view the silhouette of the mountain range called Serra de Bèrnia, which serves as the backdrop for the surrounding towns of Gata de Gorgos and Jesús Pobre as well as Vall de Sant Bartolomé. On the right, we can see the valley: Valle de la Retoria, the Cavall Verd mountain with three towns of Vall de Laguar, and to the north, the Sierra Segaria, flanked by the Gulf of Valencia.
CIRCULAR ITINERARY ON "COLL DE POUS"
Once we have reached the top of the hill called Coll del Serrallo, we descend on the trail on the right which will take us to the hill: Coll de Pous. It is located in a lovely wooded zone that is well-conserved; it is predominantly pine trees. We return to Dénia strolling through a residential area until we reach La Pedrera district.
