Great hike with sweet views, this trail is fairly rocky but very visible throughout. The last 600m is a bit more of a scramble, but is well marked. Definitely recommended

Fairly easy switch back trail surrounded by wild flowers. Some scrambling over larger rocks to get to the summit but easy for most people if you take your time. Great 360° views of Javea and Denia from the top.

Difficult underfoot but worth the climb.
