Please take care of the following rules before you join:
1. The walks takes about 2-3 hours so plan accordingly.
2. Wear practical footwear as terrain is most often uneven.
3. Due to bad weather conditions, we may change the venue of a walk, so check your emails.
Dogs are welcome; however, your dog must be kept on a leash. No stretch/flexii leashes are allowed. Poo pickup is a must! Remember to bring lots of water for yourself and a bowl for your dog.

Location – Quinta do Pisão We will start with a leisurely walk so people can catch
up with one another after such a long hiatus. There are 4 new burros born over the
last 2 months that will be nice to see.

Meeting place: Quinta do Pisao interior parking lot. Inside the grounds/after the entry
gate turn right and continue about half a km to the parking lot after the Centro do
Interpretaçâo. On the weekends there is a gate that prevents you from going all the
way to this parking lot. If the gate is closed, there is a large dirt parking lot on the left
just by the gate that prevents you from going further.
Driving directions: From Cascais take EN247 to Malveira da Serra. In Malveira look for the
Spar supermarket and turn right immediately past the market. In about 20 meters turn left at
the sign for Penha Longa (steep long hill). Take this road for about 5 kms until you see Quinta
da Pisao clearly signposted on the right.
Alternatively, you can take the motorway past Cascais Shopping and past the Beloura
Shopping Center (A16). At the second roundabout past Beloura Shopping Center, reverse
direction and return to a place where you will see a sign for Penha Longa. Turn there and
follow the road to just past the Penha Longa complex to the sign for Quinta do Pisao which is
on the left.
