Salir do Porto woods and Casais do Salir (spo15S)

Walk location:  A walk (1.5 hrs) in woodland above Salir do Porto.

Originator:  John

The Walk: At the start we walk along a narrow path through woodland. The path is overgrown at times so long trousers are recommended.  We join an open track and walk round to cross the main road. The next part is downhill through woodland with some loose sand underfoot. The last part is through Casais do Salir, crossing the main road to the start point. There are alternating stretches of downhill and uphill.

Timing: The walk is about 6 km and is expected to take about 1.5 hrs.


Car Meeting Point:  The roadside parking adjacent to the roundabout in Salir do Porto for 10:15 am. The roundabout is on the main road from São Martinho do Porto to Foz do Arelho. Park on the road leading to the railway station and Nascer do Sol restaurant.
