Circular route with the form of a double tennish racket, of low difficulty and 23 km long. Interesting all year round. It presents several relevant points of interest mainly in terms of landscape and bird diversity.

The trail starts at Parque do Areal, in Angeja, developing towards Baixo Vouga Lagunar.

It mainly uses rural paths that cross a vast agricultural area, through an area with very characteristic landscape composition called "Bocage". This type of landscape in essence is characterized by a landscape mosaic composed of hedges, cultivated land, forests and wetlands, where the salt marshes, alders, oak, brambles, ivy, among others, predominate. One of the aspects that make this route amazing, is the biodiversity, especially avifauna, making this route of special interest for lovers of birdwatching. Storks, the most abundant species, nest here every year, making it easy to observe them in rice fields, pastures and wetlands. A very interesting route to take as a family due to its low level of difficulty and variety of points of interest.
