Route Monnàber Nou – Penya d´es Migdia

Penya d'es Migdia

INFORMATION

Short but pretty steep walk to the nearest peak of the Serra Tramuntana from the Monnàber estate. After a short stretch of beautifully mixted agricultural land of olive and carob groves we walk upstream of the usually dry torrent de Carrós. A steep trail through dense and spiny forest climbs up to the summit of the Puig Penya Migdia. From the summit you have stunning views of the inlands of Mallorca (Es Pla in Mallorquin). Our way back to the Monnàber estate goes over the same route. Although a short route, do not underestimate its difficulty; a steep and sometimes-slippery trail makes it a tuff climb.
