This is a particularly satisfying and interesting walk once the possible obstacle of accessibility to the start is overcome. It is a high level walk both snowier in winter and slightly cooler in summer. The nonstop succession of views is superb and on a really clear day the islands of Formentera and Ibiza are visible some 100 km to the ENE. Dels Teixos is a delight, particularly on a hot day as it combines a north face, shady trees and cool water. A hut in which to shelter generally seems to be open and makes it a very pleasant place to wait while the less relaxed of the party climb the summit. The ascent of Penya Alta (Aixorta) from here is fun and not too arduous and rewarded with vertiginous views and an optional short “ridge scramble” to the W. Subsequent visits to the Nevera, (ice pit), and Morro Blau are interesting and there is the challenge of pathfinding to and from Font Major to come. At the end the cave’ (ice pit?), is curious and well worth an “end of walk” push.
A local bar would create perfection but Castells and Tarbena are not far.
70% good tracks. 30% poor paths.

    Esta excursion se puede hacer desde el pantano de Guadalest en su cabecera sale una carretera que indica Aixorta. Se sube por asfalto hasta un cruce de 4 caminos en la base del Castellet donde se puede dejar el coche aunque con un todo terreno se podria llegar a su inicio.
    Tambien se puede hacer desde Tarbena y recomiendo la pagina de Bob y Jean que explica como. En ambos casos es un poco engorroso y largo pero se puede hacer con cualquier vehiculo, incluso se puede llegar a la Font dels Teixos.
    He seguido la ruta propuesta por estos insignes ruteros y solo tiene un fallo desde el Barranc de la Font Major hasta el Knoll se pierde el sendero y ellos suben cuesta arriba entre bancales que no es muy pesado pero al volver a encontrar el sendero vi que venia marcado de atras asi que la proxima vez lo seguire haciendo la ruta al reves y corregire el problema.
    La mayor parte de la ruta se hace por caminales anchos sin asfaltar y a la sombra lo cual es un alivio maxime teniendo la preciosa fuente dels Teixos a mitad de ruta

    Very nice trail for running. In the middle trail was a bit unclear but for the rest perfect.
