Tuesday, 15 February – Let’s Walk near Silves

Another great walk passing through unspoilt countryside and along the hilltops, there is one real climb but it is very gradual – just over 2 hours.

10.00 am start – meet at the Pastelaria Kina in Enxerim. Drive to Silves, cross the main bridge and turn right, continue along to the roundabout where you take the first exit. After about 400m you will see a GALP station on your left, turn left immediately afterwards, the Pastelaria is just along on the right. Julie 965 753 033

Tuesday, 22 February – Let’s Walk in the Forest

Just above Barao S Joao is a National forest and this walk of 2.5 hours takes you up through the forest before emerging on the hill top with great views. The return route is around the hillside with good views south to the sea. Fairly easy – one climb.
10.00am start – meet at the cafe in the main street opposite the church in Barao S Joao. Take the A22 to the end at the first exit at the roundabout towards Lagos. Drive through Bensafrim and then turn right for Lagos Zoo, after 5km you arrive at BS Joao and the church is on the left, with parking behind. Julie 965 753 033
