A walk on the ridge above Salgado Beach (pes20S)

Walk location:  A walk to the top of the ridge above Salgado Beach

Originator:  Flynn

The walk:  Starting from the Praia do Salgado beach access parking lot we walk along
the beach to the gravel road that goes up to the Salgado Mirador. Next we
walk along the Mangues headland trail to the point where we can overlook
Praia do Gralha. From there we take the gravel road (Estrada do Chães) back
to the Salgado Mirador and connect with the litoral trail that goes down to
Salgado at a more gradual slope than the gravel road. This takes us all the
way back to the starting point.

NB: The track has deep ruts in places from motorbike and water erosion.

Timing:  The walk is about 5km and is expected to take about 1.5 hrs.


Car Meeting Point:  Praia do Salgado parking area at 10:00.
