WALK - MONDAY 5 FEBRUARY 2018 - PEDREIRA/BARRAGEM/LAVADA

Post by Linda and Russell »

A steady incline through a forest, then a nice gentle downhill slope to the barragem and a flat walk back along the lavada. There is one stretch ( about 50m) along a narrow trail through some scrub, so you might prefer not to wear shorts! The walk is around 2 1/2 hours and a grade 2.5. Wendy will be leading this walk.

Start: 10:00am Meeting Point: Café Retiro dos Pescadores

Directions: From CVO, go over Silves bridge and turn right on N124 for about 4.9kms, driving past 2 cafes, one called " Casa de Pasta a Norinha" and one " Taberna da Norinha", both on the left hand side of the road.

Turn left at a sign saying " Pedreira , Pinheiro e Garrado" and drive 0.4kms : turn left and meet at Cafe Retiro dos Pescadores. Please do not park right in front of the cafe : there is limited parking on the opposite side of the road, but best to park after you turn off the N124 but before you actually turn left.

NB Do NOT turn left on N124 at the earlier sign saying just " Pinheiro e Garrado" , which is before the 2 cafes.

Wear stout trainers/walking boots, a walking pole would be useful, all walks at your own risk and no charge. The café should be open for coffee at the start and end of the walk. For those wishing to stay for lunch we will drive back to Café Casa de Pasta a Norinha where they do a set lunch within the 10 euros budget, including tip etc. Numbers limited as this is a small café.

Please indicate below if you would like to join us for the walk and also if you would like to have lunch. Thank you. Contact number on the day is 0044 796 0552618.
