Station CP e Reservoir
If this route seems too short or easy, consider Red route 33 ‘Sabóia and Reservoir‘ which also passes through the most emblematic parts, adding kilometres and altitude.
At 12 km you can make a detour of about 1 km there and back down to the reservoir dam where there is a small river beach in summer.
Please note that you go up 25 m first before going down 70 m. On the way back it is the reverse, of course, with the aggravating fact that the climb is very hard reaching 30% inclination.
Only on departure and arrival at Santa Clara-a-Velha.
The route runs through some streets in the centre of Santa Clara-a-Velha and follows the N266 for a few hundred metres near the train station. The rest of the journey takes place on open roads and lanes, and occasionally you may encounter some car traffic. Caution is recommended.
Part of the route coincides with the Rota Vicentina Circular Routes, so it is very likely that you will encounter hikers.
