The coastal ridge at Serra de Pescaria (pes18L)

Walk location: The sea and land side of the ridge at Serra de Pescaria

Originator:  John

The Walk:  The walk starts on the sea side of the ridge and involves steep ascents and descents.  The next part is along a quiet road through a village.  Then we descend on a track to the valley on the land side of the ridge near to Quinta Nova followed by an ascent through pine woods crossing the road to Famalicão and continuing to climb towards open countryside with views to the south along the Caldas da Rainha  valley.  We join a road through Bom Jesus and eventually rejoin the top of the ridge to follow a coastal path back to Serra de Pescaria.  

Timing:  The walk is about 12 km and is expected to take about 3.5 hrs


Car Meeting Point:  We meet at a roadside parking place just north of the café “Padaria 33” at 09:30 am; it’s about 100 metres before the cross-roads in Serra Pescaria.
