Kilometers: 62,54 km
Accumulated slope: +1335 m
We start this route to Castellón by the Ronda Norte. Once we practically reach the base of the Penyeta Roja Urbanization, we start the ascent. A total of approximately 17 kilometres of ascent along dirt tracks will take us to the Cantera, where we will have to take the bike on our backs if there is an accumulation of stones along the way. Once we reach the quarry, we will go down until we find a sign indicating Borriol. From there, continue along the paths and pass by some roads parallel to the golf course. At a certain point, you will find the bed of a small dry river. There we will take the path on our right hand side until we get to the road that will take us to the Urbanization La Coma. If we continue, we will find the asphalt and we will enter again by a track that will take us to the town of La Puebla de Tornesa. From there, there is only a short climb up the track to the top of the Desierto de las Palmas, passing through the urbanisation of the refuge (about 6 kilometres of ascent). Once here we will return to the point of origin. A very beautiful but demanding route. Qualified as moderate.

At the end of the ascent, which we will have already taken to the Desierto de las Palmas road, at approximately kilometre 21.6 of our route, we will turn off to begin a short descent along the Madadora track. We will arrive at Benicàssim by the cycle path, and we will start the last ascent of the day to the Desierto de las Palmas. 7 kilometres until we reach the top and start the descent.
