The Cache is not at the listed coordinates which is the Car Park to begin the journey.
This is the second of the CacheWalker Series in the Algarve, the first being GC1HTZY based on Porto de Mos.
There are 5 caches and this bonus cache in the series which is based on an Environmental Trail (Trilho Ambiental) between Vila do Bispo and Castelejo Beach, and an extended ridge walk with magnificent views. The total walk is less than 8 km .
The 5 Caches from which the bonus coordinates can be collected are:
The bonus coordinates should be substituted in N37º AB.CDE' W008º VW.XYZ'
to locate this bonus cache.
This Environmental Trail is closed to motorised traffic, and geocachers should respect this and carry out the very pleasant walk on foot in the listed order.
From the recommended car park, go past the Trail Notice Board, Painel 1 and follow the trail initially heading 160º.
The Trilho Ambiental is clearly marked with wooden posts marked with red and yellow flashes.
Castelejo from the ridge
At about 500m you will reach Painel 2. Follow the trail where it turns right at the Forestry Guard House. Painel 3 and a seat to rest will be found at about 1.7 km, Painel 4 and a rest area with tables at 2.25 km.
At about 2.5 km leave the Trilho Ambiental opposite a Trail Sign and fork left past a rope onto a wide path which starts to ascend slightly. Carry on along the ridge until you reach the marvelloue views at the end. At approximately 4.5 km turn back on the ridge path, (the views are completely different on the way back.
When you reach the rope where you forked left originally, turn left at the T-junction onto the Trilho Ambiental again. You will find the Trail Painel 5 at about 6 km, and then Painel 6 at 6.5 km. The trail meets the tarmac road to castelejo at 6.8 km. Turn right and take a path parallel to the road which takes you to the car Park where you started at about 7.4 km. Walking time, not allowing for searching and logging the caches is less than 2 hours. Good luck and enjoy the series.
