The Walk: The walk is along beaten-earth tracks and rough ground which may be wet or muddy and possibly overgrown in places. We make a fairly steep climb towards Raposos followed by a short steep descent back to the valley. There is a short section of quiet road walking. Bring your walking poles and sturdy footwear.
