To get to the walk you have to park just off the main road from Paul de Serra and walk a few km downhill to Rabacal. Don't worry about getting back up to the start though because there's a minibus that for a small fee...More

Yes, driving along the ER110 you will see a parking area and a big sign with the hiking map. There'll probably be a lot of cars there. You really can't get lost - there is no need for a guide. We walked all three paths... More
