Re: Walk 20 January 2020: Odelouca/Ourique : CLOSED

A freezing cold morning, but 20 walkers/lunchers + Keesha ( who seemed very much at home) gathered for an early warming coffee.

Walk 10 February 2020 : Ourique

This is Russell & Linda's walk that we did on 20 January , but hopefully I can remember it! It is only 8kms, but took 2h 15m. There are lots of ups and downs but nothing on all fours and all on good tracks. We will be able to see the municipal tip in the distance but this can be a bonus as there are...

Recce Walk Thursday 23 January : Norinho

I was shown some new variants of tracks in the hills the other day, which should form the basis of a new walk, so need to see if I can remember the route! It will start off flat along the lavada , but then has a series of slopes, none too steep, with great views. After that the paths are good and th...

Re: Recce walk Thursday 16 January 2020 : Honey Cafe

11 of us including Wendy turned up promptly at the honey cafe ; sunny but a bit fresh. Fortunately, the new fences being built didn't impinge on our route: Image00001.jpg The stream had been cleaned, so George had to rebuild the stepping stones...

Walk 3 February 2020 ; Norinho/Enxerim. CLOSED

Walk is now closed. It's flat along the lavada to start, has 5 minutes of back road and then is all on country tracks, many of them uphill but with quite a long climb in the early stages,(about ten/fifteen minutes) up some scree, and is quite steep in places, but after that the paths are good and th...

Walk 17 February 2020 ; Western Funcho. CLOSED

Walk is now closed. A lovely walk by the Western Barragem do Funcho. Most of it is flat(ish) but perhaps 20% is hilly.....nothing too severe, but it probably merits a "3" category for that part. Best part, is a return to O Gralha for lunch. Start : 10.00 Duration : about 2 hours 30 mins. Optional lu...

Walk 27 January 2020 : Moinho de Rocha ( centre). CLOSED

Walk is now closed. This is only the second for the CVO Ramblers, though it has been walked many times with the AWW. Last time with CVO was in November 2018, when we took 2h 35 m. Terrain is quite reasonable, but there is quite a long uphill stretch but nothing too steep. unfortunately, there are n...

Re: Walk 13 January 2020 ; Baragem de Funcho. CLOSED

A nice sunny day, but cool breeze to start : 23 walkers, 19 lunchers and 4 dogs after the 4 late cancellations. The barragem de Funcho looked back to usual height, albeit with muddy water: Image00002.jpg Image00003.jpg Nice group photo....except that you can't actually see the water! Image00001.jpg ...
