Moderate - Bolulla Castle - along ancient mule tracks to a ruined castle. Height gain 520m. Distance 8km.

Easy - Collado de Garga - tracks and forest roads for spectacular views. Height gain 275m. Distance 6km.

Rest day - by the pool with the Kindle and/or a trip to the beach at Altea with a tapas lunch in the old town.
