New Walk Monday 5 January 2015 : Cafe Elias, Pedreira

Post by Geoff »

A new walk to start the New Year.

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

A lovely walk in the hills behind Silves , moderate ascents and descents , lovely views. Just over 2 hours.

Directions:From CVO, go over Silves bridge and right on N124 for about 4kms, driving past 2 cafes, one called " Casa de Pasta a Norinha" and one " A Coriana" , both on the left hand side of the road.

Turn left along an unmarked road, almost opposite some abandoned blue and white domed buildings. Cafe Elias is about 100m on the left : park opposite.

Start :10.00 am.

Wear stout trainers/walking boots....a walking pole would be useful. Sunhats hopefully recommended, but some wet weather gear might come in handy.

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.

All walks at your own risk.
There is no charge.
Please indicate below if you are intending to come. Due to a recent surge in popularity, numbers will be restricted to 20.

Any qs, ring 282 380015, before 0900 or after 6pm ....but not before 3 January.

Whilst the day dawned cloudy, it soon cleared to the beautiful azure we have recently become accustomed to : 14 walkers braved the new walk including a hitherto unexplored extra loop, taking the total time to 2h 15m.
