Walk Monday 18 November 2019 : Odelouca. CLOSED

Post by Geoff » Wed Oct 09, 2019 4:54 pm

Walk is now closed as we have enough people.

This is really Russell and Linda's walk , and this will be the first time I have led it! I will check out the bee situation nearer the date ...and check I can remember it...and MAY have to move the walk to Rasmalho, though we will still eat at the Ourique. Watch this space nearer the date.


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.

Meeting Time: Meeting Point: Restaurant Ourique.Please see update post below....cafe will be open at 0950 for coffee and lunch orders.



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.
Alternatively, drive to Silves, over the bridge , turn left and drive on N124 for 10km, when restaurant will be on your left.

The restaurant will be open for coffee at 0950 and they also do a set meal within our 10 euros budget, including tip etc.

Please indicate below if you would like to join the walk and also if you would like to stay for lunch, as numbers will be restricted to about 20.

Usual caveats - all walks are at your own risk, and we do not walk if it is pouring with rain.....I will endeavour to put any cancellation note on this site by 0830 on the day of the walk.

Any questions , please ask or ring 282 380015 preferably between 1800-1900 or before 0900, but not before 23 October.
