Geocache Description:

air photo barragem 

Esta cache está escondida no topo de um dos cerros mais altos junto à Barragem de Odeleite, de onde se pode avistar toda a superfície ocupada pelas águas.
Para a encontrar, terá que fazer algum esforço físico na aproximação final, mas a vista final será uma boa recompensa.

Para chegar à cache, seguindo na direcção S-N, depois do paredão siga a via rápida e vire na direcção de Montinho.
Depois entre no estradão de terra batida em N 37º20.145 - W 7º30.160, e siga até chegar perto do cerro, onde vai encontrar três caminhos.
Estacione e siga a pé pelo trilho do meio, que segue para Sul, ladeando o monte pela sua esquerda.

NOTA: fiz o percurso sugerido de carro, sem problemas, mas se estima muito o seu, recomendo que o deixe no inicio do estradão, pois serão apenas mais 200 mts a somar ao resto. Se tem um veículo todo-o-terreno não terá problemas, mas terá sempre que fazer os últimos 100 metros subindo a pé.
Recomendo vivamente o uso de calçado adequado a caminhadas em terreno ingreme com pedras soltas, que irá encontrar nos últimos 100 metros.

ENGLISH:This cache is located on top of one of the highest hills surrounding the Odeleite Dam, from where you can see all of the water surface.
 To find the cache, some physical effort is needed on the final approach, but the final sight will be a good reward.

To arrive at the cache, going in S-N direction, after the dam wall, stay on the main road and then follow the signs to Montinho.
At the coordinates N 37º20.145 - W 7º30.160, enter the dirt road and follow it until arriving close to the hill, where you will find three tracks.

Park there and proceed on foot on the middle track, the one that heads South, tipping the mount for your left.

NOTE: I did the suggested trail by car, without problems, but if you love yours very much, then I recommend parking the car at the beginning of the dirt road. This will add only 200 mts more to the remaining portion. If you drive an off road vehicle you will not have any problems, but you'll always have to walk uphill the last 100 meters.
I recommend the use of adequate footwear - steep land with untied rocks, that you'll find in last the 100 meters.
