    We are planning three optional walks.

    Wednesday 30th.  “Pico de Tres Rienos” 11k.      This is a medium difficulty walk with great views from the peak of the 3 kingdoms of Aragon, Castile and Valencia. We stop for a picnic lunch at some old abandoned sheep corrals.

    Thursday 31st,   “Estrechos de Ebron” 10k. This is a delightful gorge walk of medium difficulty including stretches of pasarelles and narrow cliff paths, which would not suit people with a tendency to vertigo. It is a linear walk so that walkers can decide to return if they do not want to try the difficult bits.

    Friday 1st. “Ruta de Bohigues” 5.5k. A gorge and river walk and easy.

    There is also the”Ruta de Turia” 6k. An easy and delightful walk along the banks of the river Turia to “Casas Altas” where we can admire the urban art and have drink and a sandwich before returning to the Hotel for a G and T.

    Directions to Ademuz:    We will be traveling using our own transport.

     Take the AP7 direction Valencia and then the A3 direction Madrid. At Utiel take the N330 to Teruel and Ademuz. The Hostal is at the north end of the Town.
