Whilst much of the walk is through forest there is abundant birdlife, more often heard than seen.
Route markers are plentiful and the bulk of the route is along wide forest tracks, other than the immediate approach to, and departure from Moinhos da Ribeira the gradients aren't taxing.
The bees were busy at these plants.
Heading down to Moinhos da Ribeira.

Loads of Blue Tits darting between the trees here, all of them too fast for me to photograph.

Roadside parking available opposite the old primary school of Quinta which is also the official start point for this route.
Cascading water can be heard but not seen.
