Walk 19 March 2018 : Enxerim/Silves Windmill : CLOSED

Postby Geoff » Sun Feb 11, 2018 10:48 am

Walk is now closed as we have enough people.

Much to my surprise, this was last done, by me anyway, in September 2015, so about time we repeated it!

For those that know the usual approaches to the Silves windmill, this walk is from Enxerim and scales the eastern side of the hill. It involves crossing ( & recrosing) a stream, but there are stepping stones. It also misses out the housing in the outskirts off Silves and bypasses all the lavadas , so it's all 100% countryside, and much nicer than other walks in this area.

There are obviously some steep hills to climb, though the steepest is optional. Duration is about 2 h 30 m, just under 10km. We do stop & admire the views when getting a bit out of breath!

Degree of difficulty (scale 1to 5 ) : 3 Hard

Walking boots or stout trainers are recommended, along with walking poles.....and a hat and water...but bring some wet weather gear in any case!

Please note that the walk will be cancelled of the weather is poor. I shall put a note on this website at about 0830 that morning, 0900 at the latest.

Tel 282 380015 if you need more info, preferably between 0830/0930 and 1700/1900......but not before 20 Feb.

As usual, all at your own risk, and no charge.

Start : 1000

Directions:From CVO, go to Silves and cross the bridge.
Turn right on the N124 , and bear right over the next roundabout in the direction of Messines.
Go past the Galp petrol station , on the left , until, after about 1.5kms from the bridge, you turn left almost opposite the residential guest House Vila Sodre.

Almost immediately, turn right, and park after about 100m, just before the Cafe Cantinho do Enxerim.
IF you go over the bridge on the N124, you have gone too far!

Co-ordinates: N37.199979, W8.427464

Due to increased numbers on walks, we are limiting numbers to 20 so it is ESSENTIAL that you indicate below if you want to come...and if you want lunch.

Any questions please telephone 282 380015 before 0900 or after 6.00pm, but after 20 Feb.

Lunch: optional, probably a short drive away at Norinho or Casinhas, depending upon numbers ....10€.....but please note new lunch price policy at viewtopic.php?f=39&t=27800
