LA MAIRENA TO OJEN MOUNTAIN TRACK
The start point of this walk is at 400 metres above sea level which provides spectacular views of the sea, coast and mountain and on a clear day the mountains of Africa can be seen. From the shared parking location the route follows the main track down into the valley and circles around, looping back to the original track where the walk started.
From the parking spot there will be car sharing for 3 kms on a well maintained unmade road to reach the starting point of the walk. A track leads down into the valley passing some small holdings and then rises on the other side past a small reservoir, circling around until it joins the main track for the return journey past another small reservoir. At various stages there are wonderful views in all directions.
