WALK - MONDAY 7 OCTOBER 2019 - ODELOUCA - CLOSED AS FULLY BOOKED

Post by Linda and Russell »

WALK - MONDAY 7 OCTOBER 2019 - ODELOUCA


The walk will start from Restaurant Ourique, near the village of Odelouca. There are a few steep uphill stretches at the start up to the ridge where we can enjoy nice views of the hills and river and a steep downhill stretch on uneven ground. WE WALK CLOSE TO SOME ACTIVE BEE HIVES, WHICH CANNOT BE AVOIDED. The rest of the walk is fairly flat and we can enjoy the wildlife on the Odelouca river. The walk is only 8kms but is a grade 4 (energetic) due to the steep hills. The usual rules apply, wear suitable clothing and footwear, bring a drink, walking poles if you have them, no charge, walk at your own risk.
Meeting Time: 10:00am. Meeting Point: Restaurant Ourique. Directions: Leave the N125 at the Portimao/Monchique exit and follow the N124 directions Monchique/Silves. At the roundabouts keep right and follow the signs for Silves. The restaurant is on the right side of the road on a sharp bend before Odelouca. Please park just before the restaurant. The restaurant should be open for coffee and they also do a set meal within our 10 euros budget, including tip etc. Linda and Russell will be guiding this walk and the contact number on the day is: 0044 796 0552618. Please indicate below if you would like to join the walk and also if you would like to stay for lunch. Thank you.

There were 17 walkers and 2 dogs for this first walk of the winter season. Unfortunately the cafe does not open until 10am now so no pre-walk drinks, although it did open just in time for the toilet and to book lunch before we set off in the hot sun. We enjoyed some great views from the ridge top and the bees did not cause us any problems. It was extremely hot so the 8kms was plenty distance for everyone and we managed to comlete it in just over 2 hours.

Fourteen of us enjoyed a relaxing al fresco lunch on the shady terrace. After leaving a tip for the staff we raised 10 euros for the charity.

Thank you for making it an enjoyable day out for us too. Linda and Russell
