Geocache Description:

The cache is not so difficult to find, but the terrain is a bit hard.

Hope you like this great waterfall named “Frecha da Mizarela” here the Caima river jump over 60metres before landing on amazing natural pools of fresh and shining water.
Take your swimming trunks or you will regret it for a long time…

You can find this natural wonder near Arouca at “Serra da Freita” mountain, among with great places to rest a while enjoying the beautiful sights.

One easy way to find the road is heading to Arouca, and look for the following place:
N40º53.317 W008º20.550
Here you will find the sign “Frecha da Mizarela” just follow it, and your GPS too.

To get to the cache you must leave the car here:
N40º51.745 W008º17.180,

take some time to enjoy the “show”… then follow the trail at your left,

go down the hill until you reach the river and the bottom of the fall, it’s not so difficult going down (if you take the necessary care, some spots are slippery), but prepare yourself to test your health status on the way back up…

The place could be crowded, depending on the day you will seek for the cache, so please take special care being discrete during the hunt, when you find the box, just take it to some other near place and enjoy, sign the log book, then close it carefully with the plastic bag and, without being noted, place it on the same spot well hidden.

Hope you have so much fun as us hiding it.

The cache is a regular green/white plastic box marked GEOCACHING inside a black plastic bag.

Good hunting
