U3A Oliva Amblers ~ March Amble

Group Leader:
Terry Stuart

Lliber Rio Xalo

Tuesday 28th March 2023
Start Time & Duration
Length: Approx 4.5kms. Time: 2.5 hours.
We start the route on the banks of the Rio Gorgos. The route is the shortest amble we do and is very easy as it is almost entirely on the flat. We will visit an old fruit drying factory and some old wells on route. We will also visit Liber and stay for a coffee. Liber, at this time of year is very picturesque, many of the houses with window boxes have flowers in full bloom. It’s not only a riot of colour but also a photographers dream.
Route & Description
The route is EASY, Almost flat, roller coaster in character with a mixture of surfaced and some un-surfaced footpaths and roads, it is linear & follows the Rio Vernissa from Llocnou to Rotova. The countryside has a rugged beauty with some great views of the mountains and the river. We will stop a few times to allow you to take pictures & have some liquid refreshment.
How to get there
From Oliva take the N332 south towards Alicante, just after Ondara take the right turn that is sign posted CV724 to Pedreguer & Denia. Keep on the CV724 to Pedreguer. At Pedreguer take the CV720 to Parcent & Alcalali. As you approach Alcalali turn left on to the CV750 to Xalo/Jalon. Approaching Jalon you will cross over a bridge, the car park will be on your left. Park up & you will see the Café Ole on the right side of the road.
According to Google maps the distance from Oliva to Jalon is 36kms & time is approxmately 36 mins, but I would allow a little bit more for traffic etc.
Things you will need
The walk is very easy under foot, walking shoes or boots are required. Walking sticks are not necessary.
Well behaved dogs are welcome.
We will be Al La Carte lunching at PEPE´s Restaurant on the CV720
