High skill level route that follows rural paths, with a landscape dominated by cork oak and holm oak, and that skirts the "Monte da Rocha Albufeira". The degree of difficulty is attributed essentially to the distance covered and the accumulated gap, as the paths are wide and, in general, with good ground. There are some more challenging slopes, but always with great flow throughout the landscape. The main crossing points are the village of "Garvão", where there are several cafés and other support services, and the wall of the "Monte da Rocha" reservoir, which is crossed by the route. This route is partially coincides with other routes of this Cycling Center, with different distances and degrees of difficulty, allowing you to choose a different route during the activity.
