From San Carlos we wend our way through the Morna Valley, sometimes on quiet country lanes, sometimes on tracks. We skirt Puig d'en Gat, cross the Es Figural road and begin our ascent northwards of the pine-clad slopes of Ses Tanquetes, part of the Serra Grossa range. The views as we climb are delightful, looking out across the coast in a south-easterly direction. After a kilometre or so of steady climbing up a wide track, we reach the crest by a forest fire water container and now take a narrow footpath which will bring us to a track by a classic Ibiza farmhouse. From here we soon reach the ruined farm with its typical round-topped exterior oven. We can only imagine what life must have been like for the people who lived and worked here only fifty or so years ago. From here we take a track heading west and need to pass round two gates intended to stop indiscriminate use of the tracks by four-wheel drive vehicles and scramble bikes. Soon we are steeply descending a wide track that soon brings us back down to the Es Figural road and the Morna Valley. To finish we take a track skirting Puig d'en Besora that quickly brings us back to San Carlos.

Checked on 16 April 2019. I have had to change some pictures and make some description changes. Most importantly it looks as though it may soon not be possible to gain access to the Es Figueral road from way mark 4 since a large electric gate appears to be in the process of installation. If this happens see Additional Information for the alternative route. The walk remains an excellent one and is strongly recommended. Jim Arymar.
