A particularity of this different walk is that it provides a scenery that is only possible to see at this time of year, since the interior of the municipality of Loulé «has a reddish tone caused by the extensive area of ​​strawberry forest existing in this area».

Along the route of approximately 10 kilometers, participants can observe a windmill, the typical traditional schist houses and drink water from the fountains, «a very present symbol in the rural heritage of Caldeirão».

At the end, all participants are invited to «a true mountain magusto, where there will certainly be no shortage of chestnuts, sweet potatoes, chorizo, cheese, homemade bread and medronho brandy».
