A moderately easy walk (just over 2 hours) in the foothills with some climbs but there are fantastic views down to the coast. This walk will allow you to discover an area that you would never see on your own. It is well off the beaten track.
10.00 am start – meet at the cafe Retiro dos Pescadores. Drive into Silves over the bridge and go right At the next roundabout take the 1st exit and drive for 5.5km, when after an old factory on the right you will see a sign for ‘Pedreira’ to the left. Turn and drive for 500m at the fork, go left and the cafe is just there on the left. Chris 913 011 537
