After passing through Vilar Maior and Badamalos and reaching the GRVC, the trail continues along the right bank of the Côa, flanked by green meadows and dotted with large trees. The route crosses the Nave and Vilar Maior streams before taking a pedestrian pontoon across the river Côa. From here it is possible to gain access to the village of Porto de Ovelha, on an unmarked detour (570 m). The GRVC continues through pastures and old orchards as far as Sítio do Açude, from where it is possible to gain access to the village of Malhada Sorda on an unmarked detour (2.9 km). The pedestrian footpath climbs towards the village of Jardo before descending to the mouth of the Noemi river, where an interesting group of windmills can be seen. Through fields, meadows and cork oak forests, the trail continues along the left bank of the Côa River, crosses the railway line and continues to Porto de S. Miguel. Here, the GRVC crosses the Historical Villages GR (GR22).
There is an unmarked alternative trail to the historical village of Castelo Mendo (2.3 km). There is a section that runs along a road, before the detour to the village of Castelo Bom. The route continues through areas of forests and woods, sometimes closer to the river, sometimes climbing the slope to get over steeper areas, until it reaches the Manuel José pontoon, where it crosses the river Côa. At this point there is an unmarked detour that provides access to the village of Aldeia Nova (3.0 km) and an Equestrian detour that avoids rocky areas (Aldeia Nova Equestrian detour). Once on the right bank of the river, the GRVC continues in the direction of Almeida, running through areas of forest, estates and a reservoir. When it reaches the EN340, the GRVC crosses the Historical Villages GR (GR22). At this point, you can choose to follow the GRVC along the eastern route towards Almeida, or on the western route towards Valverde. The western trail crosses the Grande Bridge on an old pavement before climbing through estates and groves towards the village of Valverde, on farm tracks and passing over another old bridge, Ponte de Gaiteiros. There is a trail to the village of Valverde, which can be accessed along an unmarked detour (514 m). The trail arrives at the village of Mangilde along farm and forest tracks, following the Gaiteiros stream. The village is accessed along an unmarked detour (500 m). Shortly after the village there is an unmarked detour to visit an old pit, known as Curral de Lobos. From here onwards, the GRVC uses farm tracks and footpaths to descend Coscorinho towards Qta. De Maçaínhas. Here there is an unmarked detour to access the village of Vale de Madeira. Further on, after crossing the Gaiteiros stream, there is another access to the river beach. The trail crosses the Gaiteiros stream once again where it flows out into the river Côa before climbing towards Pesqueiro, from where it is possible to access the village of Pinhel along an unmarked detour. Finally, following the Judeu steam and skirting around Barrocal, the trail ends in the village of Quinta Nova, on an unmarked detour (1.8 km).
