Núcleo de Colos

44

Funcheira

51.5 KM

A difficult and very varied route that runs south of Colos through remote areas of almost untouched nature.In addition to numerous small climbs and descents, its main difficulties are a climb from 3 km to 14 km, and another from 37 km to 45 km, both intersected by several small descents.At first it goes west towards the Tamera community, one of the largest ecovillages in Portugal, continuing south and then east. It mainly follows along rural and forest roads, almost always in the middle of a stunning vegetation with many cork oak groves and pastures.It has no single tracks and no noteworthy waterline crossings.
