Walk location:  A long walk (2.5 hrs) by the cliff top and woods at Boa Vista near to the Estrada Atlântica between Foz do Arelho and Salir do Porto.

Originator:  John

The Walk:  We will walk a short distance along the Estrada Atlântica (a fast but not busy road) then follow a track to the cliff edge. We continue back to the Estrada and cross it to descend to Cidade and walk along quiet roads to the woods near Boa Vista. We follow tracks through the woods and eventually return to Boa Vista and the cars. The tracks on the first part may be muddy and slippery and then we will walk through long, wet grass for a short distance. After that the tracks are firm with some sand and some descents and ascents.

Timing:  The walk is about 10 km and is expected to take about 2.5 hrs.

Total distance: 10098 m
Max elevation: 149 m

Total climbing: 231 m
