We begin by walking down through the town to join the walkway high above the riverbed of the Rio Gorgos. We descend to cross the dry (Jan 2020) riverbed and climb up the other side to begin a lovely ramble through timeless countryside. We climb up to reach a ruined farm with an underground water storage well and from here can divert a few paces to visit the emblematic and interesting Font de la Mata. (See also Walk 8112). Our way continues to meander through pinewoods and open country and soon we can see Gata de Gorgos below us. Now we have only to drop down, cross the dry riverbed again and climb up the other side for the final stretch into Gata.
