This route begins at the Dénia firing range, next to the CV-736 road (the Les Planes). It is a shorter journey than the route from Jesús Pobre to the summit, also widely used. However, this itinerary that we explain now is much more pending, so you must assess which one you prefer to do.
Next you have an index with all the points that we are going to deal with.
Technical data of the route and layout
The entire route is outlined in gray in the following image of the Cartographic viewer of l'Institut Cartogràfic Valencià.
The exit of this route It starts from the Dénia shooting range, which we reach by a dirt track from the CV-736. The beginning is signposted next to the car parks. We continue along the path that reaches a wide track, and we continue to the right towards the It montgó.
The gravel track leads to a stony path that zigzags upwards. In the last section, the ascent is more difficult because we will go up the limestone ridge before reaching the top. There are many slopes and areas where you will need to use your hands to support yourself and move forward.
La distance that we will travel on this route is almost 4 kilometers, specifically, 3874 meters. The duration Estimated time is 1 hour 45 minutes and difficulty considered of this route is high.
What to see
In addition to the beautiful views from the top of Montgó, where you can see the bay of Xàbia and part of the port of Dénia. You can also, with a bit of luck, enjoy the flight of the Bonelli's Eagle or the Peregrine Falcon.
Once at the top it is very easy for you to also find the base of what was the Creu del Montgó o Creu de Xàbia, which unfortunately no longer exists today due to vandalism.
