Geocache Description:

This is a beautiful and short walk through a little known area of the Algarve. The terrain is not tricky and the scenery wonderful.

Leave Lagos on the EN120 and take a right at the sign for Sargaçal. Follow the road to the top of the hill and take the first left. Drive the very end of this road. Park the Car in the empty lot at N37'08.956 W008'41.316. It is a short (15minute) walk to the site which will take you through a pine forest and over a dry river bed (not dry in winter but its possible to jump over if you dont mind your shoes getting a bit muddy).

The Old Dam has been inactive for centuries but if you choose to continue your walk after you find the cache you will find the most beautiful valley to walk through.

Small note about cache maintenance: This cache has been created while I am on vacation at my mothers house. She will check the cache daily as she walks the dogs past this site
