Of the three routes that lead to the top of Montgó, this is the shortest. The one that leaves from Jesús Pobre lasts about 3 hours 45 minutes, and the one that leaves from the Camí de la Colònia, about 3 hours. However, the route from the Dénia Shooting Range to the top has an estimated duration of 1 hour 45 minutes. Keep reading to know all the details.

Next you have an index with all the points that we are going to deal with.

Route data and layout

We will start the route at the firing range, which is accessed by a dirt track from the CV-736. Here's how to get there.

Next to the parking lots the beginning of the route is marked. Continue along the path and you will reach a wide track, and continue to the right towards Montgó. The gravel track leads to a rocky path that begins to ascend in a zig zag pattern. In the last section, the path becomes complicated because it develops on the ridge of limestone rock that exists before reaching the top: here you will pass through large slopes and areas in which you will have to help yourself with your hands to climb over some rocks.

This path is outlined in gray in the following image, which you can zoom in and move in the Cartographic viewer of l'Institut Cartogràfic Valencià.


We will travel almost 4 kilometers, 3874 meters. A cumulative elevation gain of 550 meters is saved.


As we have said, the estimated duration is one hour and forty-five minutes.


It is considered to be high difficultyEspecially for the final stretch on the rock ridge at the top.

What can we see

In addition to the impressive views, with a bit of luck you can enjoy the flight of the Bonelli's Eagle or the Peregrine Falcon.
