Hiking in the
There are many hiking possibilities in the "Xorret del Cati". Both from the top of the mountain and from the slopes of the same, you can find several trails, always well marked. The routes are safe and have been previously well signposted all the way. The best place to start hiking is undoubtedly from the hotel "Xorret del Cati". The landscape is typically Mediterranean with scrub, pine forests and lush green mixed with gray and yellowish brown rock terrain. There are more than 20 marked routes but I advise "the despeñador" and the "beautiful corner" which I think are the prettiest and the easiest.

Benaoján: When the Man Dreamed to Fly
The climb to the Chorret del Cati varies in steepness. In fact it has been the end of the "Tour of Spain" on several occasions and winners have always had to tackle the varying stages in this climb. If we go to Castalla (Alicante) on the south side we find directions that will lead to the foot of this mountain peak. By car it is a nice drive, if you choose to walk it is more than two hours and by bike .., it's better not even try if you're not very prepared. Whenever I've gone for the day I have seen amateur cyclists exhausted in the gutter sections and some vomiting from the tremendous effort required to tackle this path by bike. The views are spectacular throughout the entire journey, so my advice is to stop every 10 minutes. If you come by car, stop occasionally for a look back and enjoy the panoramic views offered.
