Geocache Description:

Esta cache tem como principal objetivo dar a conhecer ao mundo do geocaching este trilho, que liga Câmara de Lobos à Ribeira Brava.


This cache has as main objective to inform the world of geocaching this trail, which connects Câmara de Lobos to Ribeira Brava.

 






Este trilho tem o seu início no miradouro existente na Boca da Corrida (Jardim da Serra – Câmara de Lobos) e percorre parte do maciço montanhoso central, junto à base dos picos mais altos da Ilha da Madeira entre os 940 e os 1340 metros de altitude.
Este antigo caminho parcialmente “calcetado”, era noutros tempos uma das principais vias de movimentação de pessoas e carga através da ilha.
Há referências de ter existido algures neste caminho uma mercearia que provavelmente serviria de ponto de comércio e de descanço para todos os caminhantes de passagem quando cruzavam a ilha.
Durante o percurso é possível avistar o Curral das Freiras e todo o maciço montanhoso envolvente.

This old road partially "paved", other times it was one of the main routes of movement of people and cargo across the island.
There are references have existed somewhere in this way a grocery store that probably serve as a point of trade and rest for all walkers of passage when crossing the island.
During the journey you can see the Nuns Valley (Curral das Freiras) and around the mountain massif surroundings.
