SANTA POLA Town Hall has published a new hiking guide. It covers the network of trails and routes throughout the municipality.
“There is a wide variety of paths and so much to explore on foot and by bicycle and this can help to attract tourists,” said Tourism Councillor Loreto Serrano and Sport and Environment Councillor Francisco Martin.
Routes include a short trail through the Sierra de Santa Pola (PR-CV61), the long distance trail around the municipality (GR232), the mountain bike trail BIT Atalayola, and the El Pinet and Tamarit Beach trail which covers the whole coastline of the municipality.
“In recent years we have improved the cleanliness of the Sierra de Santa Pola and adapted the trails,” Serrano said.
“This was a large scale project as nothing has been done with the trails since the 1940’s with the final objective creating a sort of theme park where locals and tourists can walk or ride bicycles through as well as connecting to Gran Alacant.”
“I walk along in the Sierra and can assure that more people are enjoying it thanks to the work done by the town hall.”
The map will be available at tourist offices in Spanish and English. It marks heights and points of interest.
