This route follows the same course as the red route as far as Enxoé brook. It is a very long and difficult route that runs the length of the county to arrive at a series of mountains: the Serras de Malpique, Adiça e Ficalho. It is mostly formed of dirt roads for farming and the difficulty increases in the sections near the mountains, where the paths become less "rolling" and more demanding. This route can be made shorter by following the connection shown on the map. It is a signed route, but GPS is recommended.
