Without a doubt, this is the most traveled itinerary in our range, as it is a journey where every week hundreds of people pass through its 4 km of ascent starting from the Urbanization of Montepinar, a start that will soon be modified as it passes through privately owned plots.
The new proposal starts from "Cabezo de la Ballesta", next to the Oriokart karting circuit on the CV-870, ascending slightly to continue, next to various farms, until we enter next to the "Los Baladares" ravine, bordering it and later crossing it to the junction with a track, moving to an ascending path towards some zig-zags.
Without leaving our path, and after approximately 45 minutes, we will see the famous Cruz de La Muela (463 masl) which we can access from the "Explanada", where the views will invite us to have a bite and hydrate ourselves, being able to contemplate with a view Panoramic even the sea on sunny days.
The descent will be our next objective, returning to the starting point, retaking our steps, and taking care in the most eroded areas, where the rains and the great movement of people have made a dent in its firm.
Once we are back in the Cabezo de la Ballesta our route will have come to an end, becoming a route suitable for the whole family that must be traveled at least once in a lifetime.
