Walk Tuesday 19 Feb 2019 : Aguas Bellas. CLOSED

Post by Geoff » Fri Feb 01, 2019 3:46 pm

Walk is now closed as there are enough people.

I was amazed that we haven't done this walk since Feb 2016, almost 3 years ago....that is, till a brave group did the recce to check out a couple of points a week or so ago.

Overall difficulty ( scale 1 to 5 ) : 4 strenuous

Please also note the walk is quite long at about 2 hours 40 mins.

A circular walk ,north of Silves around Aguas Bellas through interesting countryside, with some small streams, that are usually easily fordable. Please note there is a LONG uphill slope, not particularly steep, but quite long!

10.00am start.

Directions: Drive over bridge at Silves & turn right at traffic lights. At next roundabout take the 2nd exit towards the castle. Passing the cemetery walls on your right take next turn right. Follow this road until you reach the Cafe Terinho on the left hand side, about 4 kms from the roundabout in Silves.

GPS:37.223324 N, 8.4431709 W

Please do not park in front of the cafe : there is plenty of space alongside the road after it......or in a carpark, 150m on the right after the cafe.

Please wear stout trainers or, preferably, walking boots. Walking poles, sun cream, hats and water also recommended.
If the weather is bad, we won't walk : but if showery, please bring something waterproof.

If the weather turns for the worse, any cancellation notice will be posted here by 0830 on the day ; please check if in doubt...or ring me.

Lunch ( optional):this will be at the Mira Rio , a 10km ( 13mins) drive : the Cafe Terinho was tested recently and was a bit of a curate's egg, apart from being a bit small..Mira Rio lunch is 7.5€ but charge will be 10€ pp to cover tip & charity contribution, .....see new lunch price policy at viewtopic.php?f=39&t=27800

Usual caveats - all walks are at your own risk, and we do not walk if it is pouring with rain...no charge, of course...I will endeavour to put any cancellation note on this site by 0900 on the day of the walk.

Any questions , please ask or ring 282 380015 preferably between 1800-1900 or 8am to 9am .

Please indicate below if you wish to come & if you want lunch as numbers are likely to be limited.
