A wonderful place to visit with fantastic views and easy walks
Nov 2021
The mountain which towers over the town is a wonderful place to visit-
the initial walks up the mountain are at a very gentle incline and easy to do. The sites are spectacular-
definitely recommend this if you are in the area

Journey to the top of Montgo.
Aug 2021 • Family
My 18 year old son and I climbed Mt Montgo a few days ago. It was great but often challenging, especially towards the top, where you will come across some grade 1 scrambling, so don’t make the mistake I made, which was attempting it with open toe sandals. I made it up and down without any problems, apart from a few blisters.

If you are going to aim to get to the top, leave early (before 8 am in the summer), wear sensible walking shoes, take plenty of water and don’t underestimate the downward journey which can be hazardous if you rush down.

The rewards include some stunning views of the region and a sense of achievement.

We made it up in about 2 hours and down in about 90 mins.

Montgo, Jesus Pobre, Denia, Gata; are all beautiful. I grew up having Summers in Javea and I love it there.

2 hours to the top and 2.5 down. We did it with a 6 year old and a dog and it was a wonderful day out. Great sense of achievement, good exercise and spectacular views

Great views
Jan 2020 • Couples
We started our walk from the Jesus Pobre entrance where there is some car parking. Initially the track is paved but don’t be complacent as it changes to rough stones. A reasonable level of fitness required and I found trainers adequate plus a walking pole - mainly for the descent. We went up beyond the sign post and were treated to magnificent views. This walk/climb can go for miles. Beware the changing weather at this time of year as absolutely no shelter

this isolated limestone monolith is convenient to Denia and the surrounds. Many varied trails are possible. we enjoyed a few days of hiking around Christmas.

Interesting and refreshing but be prepared

Beautiful views and compared to many British sites very clean. Tough in places and quite long so consider the way down when coming up

Useless direction signs

Using the "5 excursions" leaflet from the Tourist Office we followed route 5 - Volta Al Montgo. The starting point is said to have an info panel at the entry to the open air market Torrecremada, there isn't one. You need to go to the far end of the market, cross the road and go up to the T junction. There you'll find two very indistinct ancient signs pointing left, this is the start. Follow the country lanes and don't worry about signs pointing left again ' into a blocked road (see photos). Keep on and skirt the abandoned cement factory. Note the only place to rest is at the unused (yet new) railway station at La Xara. Good views of the Montgo all the way. We got as far as the golf course near Bisserot and turned back - 10.8 miles from our hotel near the marina.

Amazing views, not as hard as you might think!!
Oct 2019
Had a wonderful early morning (8:00am) walk. While Montgo may look a bit daunting the path is not as challenging as you may think. Rocky in parts with some straight forward slabs to climb up you just need to make sure you have the right footwear (no flip flips or deck shoes!). We walked on a Saturday and it was pretty busy on the way down.

Ascending Montgo:- More challenging than I had thought.
Oct 2019
My friend and I were visiting Xabia and Montgo is a predominant feature in the area so my friend suggested that we take a walk to the top. We drove to the shooting club car-park on the road toward Denia. It was mid morning about 25 degrees.The walk starts with about 500 metres through a wooded area. The path was rocky and uneven but we were soon out onto a wide gravelled roadway gently rising toward the base of Montgo. The path up Montgo snakes back and forth across the lower slope of Montgo and is marked by flashes sprayed on the rocks.The trail is marked with scree (Small rocks about egg sized) that have poured on the trail to plug the rocky gaps and try to level the surface. Whilst the trail is clear the surface is rocky uneven and not for the faint hearted. 500 metres from the summit the trail changes as you scramble up the rocky face of the hill. Its not climbing but imagine uneven stairs with some sizable drops to the side you certainly need your hands free to steady yourself. At the top the views were beyond magnificent and you could see for miles and it did seem worth the climb. It was exhausting. It took 2 hrs to climb. The descent was worse. 2 1/2 hrs to climb down and get back to the car. I would warn anybody contemplating doing this walk to be medically fit especially if you have any knee/ankle/hip issues take loads of water and wear hiking boots if you have them or thick soled shoes. Personally I would think twice about taking children up Montgo because it is challenging for adults and any slips or falls on the steep and craggy trail wouldn't end well.There is a route up Montgo from Denia which might be an easier option.
