Walk 2 April 2018 : Isla de Rosario...CLOSED

Post by Geoff » Thu Feb 01, 2018 2:25 pm

Walk is now closed

This is an extrememly old favourite , but we have recently been advised of a variant or two , that makes it a bit more challenging and interesting.

It is a walk by the confluence of the Arade and the Odelouca. Around the Ilha do Rosario with beautiful views .It should take just over 2 hours & is easy(ish).

Distance about 9km or 5 miles. It is similar to the "Sunflower Landscapes" walk or the Julie Stratham walk .


Lunch: this is optional, but will 10€......but please note new lunch price policy at viewtopic.php?f=39&t=27800

Start : 10.00

Degree of difficulty: we will be going over the top, and the new route is probably a grade 2.5 : nothing too onerous, but uphill in a few places.

Directions: from CVO , cross the bridge into Silves & turn left on the R124towards Montchique/Portimao. After a little under 5 km you will see the Mira Rio cafe & restaurant on your left after a sharpish right hand bend. Parking is at the cafe , which is handy for a drink after!

Stout trainers/boots & a bottle of water suggested! Take your binoculars if you are a bird watcher. A walking pole is certainly useful......if the weather changes, bring some wet weather gear but I expect they won't be walking if it's really wet!

Any cancellation notice will be posted by 0830/0900 on the day.

No charge of course.

All walks are at your own risk.

Please indicate below if you can come and whether you want lunch, as numbers will be limited to about 20.
