17th FEBUARY : Macisvenda 11Km

We will set of from the Bar Central/Centro Cultural in Macisvenda at
10.00 for an 11Km stroll through some hills and valleys, which Ron will
lead. Parking is in the streets beside and behind the bar.

There is nothing difficult about this walk, which is on roads, both
surfaced and unsurfaced, and mountain tracks and the height gain is only 314m; so, it should be OK for most people. Ron and Philip did it in 3 hours, so we estimate about 4 hours for a group walk. Starting from the village we initially descend into the valley for a look at a quite
unusual sight in these parts, a running river with fish swimming in the
pools! Then through a bamboo grove and out onto the hillside until we
almost opposite Barbaroja and then back down to the valley again and up to Macisvenda. There are some smashing views along the way and the LR forecast is reasonably good with mid-teens temperatures, but thepossibility of showers. But they may well have disappeared nearer the time as sun is forecast for most days.

Boots or walking shoes recommended for the tracks and well behaved dogs welcome.

The Bar Central will be open for drinks & tapas and there are other
bars and restaurants nearby for those who want to eat after the walk.

I look forward to seeing you on the day.

Regards, Phil
