On March 12th sixteen Adapt members made the 25 km drive heading inland to  “The Vistabella Golf Club” north of San Miguel in  Orihuela, meeting at the club house terrace  for pre walk drinks.  

From the terrace we had a good view of our destination the lower hills  towering over the golf course given the name by the locals “ Two Trees Hills “. 

Our route started from the clubhouse on a flat stoney path and  took us around part of the perimeter of the golf course.  Over many years water running from the hillside had cut deep crevices into the rock running parallel to our taken route.

The rugged path narrowed and snaked through a high cliff pass,  we then had a  slow gradual  incline up  to one of the peaks giving good views of the lower valleys and distance mountains.  The flat track narrowed for twenty minutes  then  we reached the hill peak   and the foot of the “Cabezo Redondo” a conical mound with what looked like a concrete chimney pot on the top, there was a National Graphical high point plaque set in the concrete.  

We rested up for 20 minutes taking in the stunning 360 degree panoramic views  of  La Mata salt lakes, Algorfa, La Finca Golf Course,  Guardamar and  many more points of interest.  

Our return journey took us on a   downward path through the valley and a dense pine forest.  Surrounded by pine trees we reached the lovely Catholic Church at Benijuzar, unfortunately there was no access to the church as workmen were repairing the entrance steps.  From the church we continued through the pine valley which opened up into a more rugged area with cliffs either side.  

A forty five minute  walk  along a narrow road took us to the back of the golf course and then on to the clubhouse restaurant where  snacks, tapas,  bocadillos and hot meals  were  available.    

Details of the Adapt Club and future walks can be found on the Website.   www.adaptsanpedro.es
