High skill level route, that crosses part of the Serra de São Mamede Natural Park, by municipal roads, rural paths, some of them walled on both sides and trails. With a landscape predominantly characterized by the cork oak, holm oak and grazing areas and adjacent to the dam of Póvoa e Meadas. It is a physically demanding route that has almost 100 km, and whose main crossing points are Marvão, Portagem, Serra de Porto Espada, Albufeira da Barragem da Apartadura, Careers, Castelo de Vida, Póvoa e Meadas Dam, Póvoa e Meadas, Menir da Meada, among other places.
