Bridges, watermills, olive presses, irrigation channels andnatural pools all combine in a unique stream to provide visitors with a surprise at every turn as theyexplore this route.
This route is accessible, though it may present some technical difficulties, particularlywhen the ground is wet, as it mostly winds its way along rural dirt paths and tracks. We recommend thetrail is approached at a slow pace, so that walkers can stop to take in all the natural pools they comeacross. As they approach Bouça, walkers have the option of taking a short cut, which means they can adapt the trail to the amount of time they have available.
