Route of moderate skill level, which runs along the municipal roads that surround the Póvoa and Meadas Dam. This is a route where the landscape is characterized by agricultural landscape, with stretches of pasture and scattered "Montado" (Dehesa) areas, which skirt the reservoir of the Póvoa e Meadas Dam and crosses the dam wall as well.
