Circular path that goes towards the mountain, following a tar road until the top of "Serra de São Mamede" and then going down to the east side, passing "Monte Sete". Following then south, crosses Teixinha and Sobral and in Soverete turns right towards to Alegrete. In Alegrete the route goes north through rural and dirt paths through the middle of the mountains. Further on, upon reaching the N517-4, the trail encounters several blue classification trails and follows one of them to the Reguengo Cycling Center. You will cross the M517, take the M1148 and turn right on a dirt road that leads to the N246. Here you cross it and then follow it, parallel to it, towards Joinal, returning on an urban environment to the Cycling Center.
