Núcleo de Odemira


GT From Amoreiras-Gare to Santa Clara-a-Velha

144,5 KM

The main objective of this Long Distance MTB Trail is to connect all the Odemira MTB trailheads, departing from a train station and ending at or near another station. It is a relatively long course but of a low technical level and so is also accessible to Gravel bikes. Although it often runs alongside sections of other MTB routes, it is designed to avoid the most technical sections, therefore it has a higher percentage of asphalt, but always with little traffic. You can start at Amoreiras-Gare Station (where there is 1 train a day), or at Funcheira (with 3 daily trains) or go to Santa Clara, passing 8 km before at Savoie Station (where 3 trains stop daily). The train stations and the 5 headtrails of the network follow in order: km     0 – Estação de Amoreiras-Garekm   12 – Estação da Funcheirakm   26 – Colos km   54 – São Luískm   82 – Odemirakm 104 – São Teotóniokm 136 – Estação de Santa Clara / Sabóiakm 144,5 – Santa Clara-a-VelhaDespite passing through small villages, the route takes place mainly in remote areas of the municipality of Odemira, where you can breathe the peace of the tranquil Alentejo! The route mainly unfolds on tracks, lanes and roads with little traffic and has no single-tracks or water crossings.

The route often crosses quiet national and municipal roads and follows the interior of the villages and towns through which it passes.
In the countryside, it follows mainly roads and roads open to traffic, where you can sometimes encounter car traffic. We therefore recommend special attention to the Rules and Recommendations.
It might be necessary to open livestock protection gates which should always be closed again after passing through.
After heavy rains, some paths may be flooded or very muddy, and special attention should be paid to these circumstances.
