Serra Pescaria and Venda Nova (pes16S)

Title:  A ridge walk overlooking the sea north of São Martinho do Porto

Originator:  John

The Walk:  The first half of the walk is on the land side of the coastal ridge and follows tracks and quiet roads.  For the second half we join the sea side of the coastal ridge with fine views inland and along the coast.  This section has gentle, uphill ascents and follows tracks.  In wet weather there will be muddy spots and wet undergrowth.

Timing:  The walk is about 6 km and is expected to take about 2 hrs.



Car Meeting Point:  

We meet at a roadside parking place just north of a café (Padaria 33) at 10:00 am; it’s about 100 metres before the cross-roads in Serra Pescaria.
