Post Walk Report: Encebras Walk Friday 6th November lead by Paul & Chris Wilson

On a wonderful November morning 10 eager walkers (but no dogs) set off to enjoy the scenery and exercise on a clear Autumn day.  The smaller party size allowed for plenty of chat amongst the group with everyone taking time out to talk and get to know each other with the vista of Monte Coto a pleasing backdrop.

After 2 hours 45 mins of walking 6 of the group set off to El Timon for a well-earned drink & lunch with 2 Danes 2 Norwegians and 2 Brits practising their linguistic talents over the menu de dia.


RV Location:  » See the Google Map for roads
Centre of Encebras Village    (N: 38.392498° – W: -0.989242°)
Please note that the spelling Enzebras appears on some road signs. Encebras is just off the CV 83 a few kilometres outside Pinoso, the turn is adjacent to Rafael’s Restaurant. Leave the CV 83 at this point and continue on the minor road for three kilometres until you come to the village, the parking is beside the road on a turning to the right.

Walk Description: This is a circular walk on metalled roads, unmade roads and tracks. Most of the climbing is quite gentle on minor roads, with one fairly steep section on a mountain track. The descent is also fairly gentle on unmade and metalled roads.

Lunch: IMPORTANT! Nothing yet arranged, but if you would like to take lunch Paul & Chris may have some ideas, please respond DIRECTLY TO THEM PLEASE by Tuesday 3rd Nov at paulwilson147 [@] hotmail.co.uk  so they are aware of the numbers.

Special Notes:

Dogs:    This walk is suitable for well behaved dogs under owner control.
