Moderately easy circular walk along the Baralha river valley and back along the Cumeada ridge with stunning views. One long uphill stretch, but nothing too dramatic.
Start at cafe on the road to the Arade Barragem ( 37.221532, -8.378085 ).
Directions : Drive to Silves, cross the bridge into town and then turn right. At the roundabout take the first exit and then follow the road towards Messines. After about 7km you turn to the left to the Arade Barragem. Follow the road for about 1km and the small café is on the left. Good parking opposite and after the café.
There is no specific lunch planned, but we will be close to Silves and to Vale Fuzeiros and could possibly have lunch there.
Start: 10h00.....but please arrive by 09h45.
Please indicate below if you can come.
Walking boots/stout trainers recommended and walking poles.
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 0830 on the day of the walk.
