The Walk

From Famalicão, on sandy tracks towards Macarca and return

The walk is along sandy tracks, with loose sand in places, but expect some muddy spots. The walking is on flat ground, goes through pine and eucalyptus woodland and open fields to Marcarca where we cross the road to return to Famalicão. There is some quiet road walking.


The walk is about 6 km and is expected to take about 1,45 hours
