Geocache Description:

!!!!!!*****!!!!!!!!!!!!! ATENÇÃO !!!!!!!!!!!!!*****!!!!!! Façam esta cache de preferência pela manhã, pois se na altura do regresso anoitecer, poderá tornar-se complicado e inseguro fazer o trilho.

P: A cache situa-se em Valença, perto do Monte Faro.

Sigam para Valença, chegando ao centro de Valença, procurem indicações ou perguntem a locais como ir para o Monte Faro, já na estrada em direcção a Monte Faro, irá aparecer uma placa a dizer "Picões", não virem aí, continuem em frente!
Mais à frente encontrarão a indicação "Sanfins 1 km" virem na direcção dessa placa e sigam sempre pela estrada em alcatrão utilizando agora o GPS até ao Waypoint "CARRO":
