JM reports online that the Ruivo – Areeiro trail has reopened. After the recent collapse – reported here – work began on repairing the overhangs and removing the debris left by the fall of earth and stones.

Pedestrian Route n.1, Ruivo – Areeiro trail is now open. “The Institute of Forests and Nature Conservation, IFCN, informs that the Pico do Areeiro-Pico Ruivo Recommended Pedestrian Route is now open after being closed due to the landslide.”

After the repair works ensured safety, enthusiasts of walks in the mountains “can once again enjoy one of the most emblematic trails!”. “The Institute reiterates the importance that signage is always respected by everyone: Madeirans, tourists and guides. Disrespect for signage, particularly on routes that are closed, hinders the normal progress of interventions, in addition to putting passers-by themselves at risk and workers”, concludes the IFCN statement.

A new, vastly improved “search” facility has been introduced allowing readers to search (box in the sidebar above) on any word or phrase used in any of the posts over the last sixteen years. Previously the search facility only returned matches on headings rather than the entire content. It remains to be seen whether this will slow the blog down – fingers crossed! If it works it should move the blog even further ahead of the increasing number of imitators, providing a huge resource for visitors and residents.
