I attempted the circular 9K trail one year ago, however was misled by the river bridge at the beginning of the trail that takes you completely off track. The key to starting the trail right is to walk past the river bridge, then past the...More

The spring was beautiful however in the summer the walk is very hot and there’s not much shade. I’d say definitely park in the second car park despite the narrow roads it half’s the walk to the fountain.

Nice easy walk along the river with very interesting fauna and flora, typical from this Algarvian region.

Quiet and peaceful stroll along the river (eventually) and in amongst bamboo if you venture off-piste. Go after rain as it can be dry, and whilst the dry river bed is interesting a babbling cascade is better. There are waypoints with rural life relics along...More

Worth going to if you want a relatively easy walk. Not too challenging for most people. I was 5 months pregnant and managed it comfortably.

We went there for a family walk and thoroughly enjoyed it. We did a short circular walk up and down the river. It was quite well shaded and there were some interesting fruit trees and bamboo.

I really don’t think so. It’s quite hilly and gets quite hot at times.
