Sabóia and Reservoir
This route is easily accessible from Santa Clara – Sabóia train station.
At 24 km you can make a detour of about 1 km each way to go down to the reservoir dam where there is, in summer, a small river beach. Please note that you go up 25 m first before going down 70 m. The route has the aggravation of including a very hard climb reaching 30% inclination.
6 km – Sabóia
The route crosses and at points crosses the national road N266 and some municipal roads that may have some traffic. Caution is recommended.
Small sections of the route coincide with two Circular Routes and the Historical Route (GR11) of the Rota Vicentina so it is very likely that you will encounter walkers.
There may be a need to open cattle protection gates. Always close them after passing
