Route Albarca - Cala Torta

Route Albarca - Cala Torta

Description of itinerary

This route is mostly within the Llevant Nature Park.

The route starts at the town of Artà (Plaça del Conqueridor) and goes towards Betlem hermitage, although at 5 km there is the fork that indicates the path towards the Llevant Nature Park.

When you reach the Houses of Albarca, at km 12 and up to km 12.8, there's a spectacular descent with some technical sections in the area of Horts Vells.

At km 16.37 there is another technical section, Torre d'Albarca, a descent of approx. 300 m, classed as of maximum difficulty due to its surface roots and steep slope. It ends at Cala Matzocs cove.

On the section between the coves of Cala Torta and Cala Mesquida, as from km 18.8, there are some sections of sand where you may have to get off your bike if you aren't very familiar with this kind of terrain.

Between km 26 and 27.8 there's another descent along a forest track that is wide but frequented by a lot of visitors and hikers. As from this point, take the path to Cala Moltó cove - the route no longer has any particular difficulties. The path passes through the houses of Son Jaumell and the Capdepera hippodrome and continues across the rivercourse of Sa Farinera, on the way back to Artà.
