The view from the top of the dam reservoir will make up for all the effort and is the ideal place for a stop to catch your breath.
In summer there is a small beach at the dam near the point where the course turns around.
5 km– Pousada de Santa Clara (proximity)
6 km – Fluvial Beach
The route runs along and crosses some streets in the centre of Santa Clara-a-Velha. The rest of the course takes place on paths, roads and lanes open to traffic. Caution is recommended.
Part of the route coincides with a Circular Route of the Rota Vincentina, so it is very likely that you will encounter walkers.
The stream crossing can be occasionally unviable or dangerous after heavy rainfall or discharge from the reservoir.
