Difficulty level: Although it has no steep ascents, this route has much sand and a river crossing.
Route Marking: Circular Routes are marked with yellow and red markers. Along the coast, when this route coincides with the Fishermen’s Trail (blue and green), route markers have both sets of colours. Pay attention to markers and study the map in order to understand the points at which the two routes split.
Crossing the beach of Foz dos Ouriços: The tides and the rainy season have a strong influence on this beach, and the crossing is always different and a challenge. For your safety, choose your way carefully, be prepared to jump from one stone to another or remove your boots. On days when the sea is raging, do not cross the river, instead follow Fishermen’s Trail till Almograve.
