A walk through woodland and hills from Foz do Arelho
The walk follows tracks through the countryside between Foz do Arelho and Serra do Bouro. We cross the main Foz do Arelho road two times, but there is no other road walking. The walk follows earthen tracks which may be muddy. There is a fairly long climb into the the hills of Serra do Bouro with good views of the countryside. The final part of the walk is through woodland.
The walk is about 6 km and is expected to take about 2 hrs
