Geocache Description:

E: The Arrábida Natural Park is a marvelous Mediterranean scenery. In the park, the Risco Mountain is a charming secluded place, with few roads nearby and, on the south side is has the highest limestone cliff of western Europe.

P: O Parque Natural da Arrábida é um cenário mediterrânico maravilhoso. No parque, a Serra do Risco é um local sedutoramente remoto, com poucas estradas nas redondezas e, do lado Sul, tem a maior escarpa calcária da Europa Ocidental.


E: The easiest way to approach this cache is by the quarry near “Pedreiras”. It’s possible to go across the quarry. You can also take the path on the left side, wich doesn't enter the quarry. There is a path through the bushes that leads to Píncaro, the cliff’s highest point (381m).

This is not a difficult cache, but it requires some precautions. From the quarry to the cache and back is a 6 km walk with a 200m altitude change (that’s what makes the view so amazing!). The path is through Mediterranean vegetation, so expect tough branches and some thorns (wear long pants and shirt).

The cache is a green tupperware.

P: A aproximação mais fácil a esta cache é através da pedreira perto da povoação de Pedreiras. É possível atravessar a pedreira. Também se pode percorrer um caminho mais à esquerda, que não entra na pedreira. Há um caminho através dos arbustos que conduz ao Píncaro, o ponto mais alto da escarpa (381m).

Esta não é uma cache difícil, mas requer algumas precauções. Da pedreira à cache e regresso é uma caminhada de 6 km com 200 de diferença de altitude (é o que torna a vista tão interessante!). O caminho atravessa vegetação mediterrânica com ramos duros e alguns espinhos (recomenda-se calças e camisas compridas).

A cache é um tupperware verde.
