Trail running

About this activity

This is a medium level 13km trail best described by its ground unevenness.
The route begins in Chão da Ribeira, Seixal: a deep valley in between the great mountain of the north.
Walking along the road, and entering Vereda das Voltas, an endless zigzag up through the Laurel forest, we get to a connection to Fanal, an amazing place with centenary trees.
Descending towards Fio we’ll begin a very technical trail, Vereda da Cavaca. After this long descent, we return to the starting point.
