DIRECTIONS
  • Park at Bar El Frax
  • Walk up the road toward Oria. Via the Los Olivos road.
  • At the end, turn left and walk up into Oria
  • At the roundabout, take a left onto Av. de Anndalucia
  • At the fork in the road, go right down Av. de Oria
  • Walk past the Cementerio Municipal
  • When you come to the little seated area, take the right just before it.
  • You will have a building either side of you, and you come to the boundary of two fields.
  • You would need to make your way up as close to the old bridle path as possible, using an online source to help you. **My WIKILOC will help to a point...then I lost GPS/Internet signal, which is why it looks like we went in a straight line at one point!**
  • You want to be coming over the other side onto a path to the right of a building ( Google Coordinates 37°29'43.4"N 2°17'59.5"W)
  • Follow the path all the way down to the road
  • On the opposite side of the road, slightly to the left is a path that drops down, it is slightly out of sight until you get down there 
  • From this man made trail, it is easy to follow it back to the bottom of Oria - Keep on it until you have the option to turn left or right. Turn right
  • You will come out opposite The Los Olivos rambla road
  • Follow the Los Olivos rambla road to Bar El Frax
