Map maker: Rafael Miguel (Portugal) & Tiago Aires (Portugal) – July 2021

Contour interval: 5 meters

Terrain: Forest is mostly covered by pine trees (Pinus pinaster). In some areas you can find some deciduous trees, as chestnut trees (Castanea sativa) and Oak trees (Quercus). The area has moderate to high climb and large areas of bare rock can be found. A lot of rock details are present in most of the areas, both boulders and cliffs. Please note that bare rock may be slippery – especially in wet conditions. Athletes are encouraged to take this into account, when they select shoes for the forest distances. Some undergrowth and dense vegetation can be frequently found, especially on the deepest valleys. Darker vegetation is typically impassable, consisting mostly of blackberry bushes (Rubus fruticosus). Genista (Genista cinerascens) is also very common in the region. Runnability varies a lot from place to place. It varies from very easy to very difficult.
