Long – Columbeira, Reguengo Grande & Pó (obi02L)

Walk location: The countryside around Reguengo Grande, which is a few kms to the south of Óbidos.

Originator:  John

 

The Walk: Initially we follow a marked walk which was officially opened in March 2008 as part of the celebration of the bicentenary of the battles of Roliça and Vimeiro between the French and a combined Portuguese & British army. The walk climbs the slopes of the Serra do Picoto (steep) where there are fine views all round. Once at the top of ridge we follow roads and tracks through open countryside to Reguengo Grande. We walk to the centre of the town and follow the river Galvão along an attractive, rocky valley (O Vale Cornaga) to Pó.
Then we follow a track back to Columbeira.

Timing: The walk is about 10 km and is expected to take about 3.5 hrs including positioning of cars, plus extra for coffee.

Car Meeting point: The car park adjacent to the aqueduct car park at the southern end of Óbidos at 09:15 am (this car park is used by camper vans). We will drive on to Columbeira.
