MTB Barranc Pouets

Canyon-like landscape and limestone outcrop goat trails

MTB tour Barranc dels Pouets

The starting point for this mountain bike tour is Javea. From our starting point, we ride in a relaxed pace in the direction of Montgo, the local mountain of Javea. Below this rugged rock formation our route takes us on small roads, forest paths and single tracks through undulating terrain. After a while we reach the entrance to the Muntanya de Pedreguer.

A narrow trail leads us past a spring and will take us uphill. The ride takes us through a canyon-like landscape, rugged rock massifs rise on both sides. Arriving at the top, there is a great view of the surrounding barren mountains. There are a few pines scattered around, which provides a hint of shade, otherwise there are only small bushes and limestone sediments. However, we didn’t come up here to experience great vegetation, but to rock the trails this mountain is hiding.

From here on, we continue our way over a single track and goat paths over the plateau.

Gradually, the path develops into a beautiful trail. In front of us we find some sharp turns, limestone outcrop and bumpy passages. The path runs down through a canyon. Overall, the downhill passage is quite rough and runs through a dreamlike landscape without a sign of civilization. In Pedreguer we emerge out from the mountains and we hit civilization again.

In Gata de Gorgos we take a break. With cool drinks and local cuisine to enjoy, we review the descent and prepare for the return journey.

Shortly before Javea, fine trail fun awaits us again. With plenty of flow we ride through sloping terrain down to the riverbed of the Riu Gorgos. On the last stage of the day we follow the Riu back to the starting point.

Breaks for drinks and/or photos can be customized.
