This trail starts in the village of Quinta Nova. The GRVC can be accessed along an unmarked detour (1.8 km). The trail descends through abandoned farming areas towards the banks of the river Côa. At this point, alongside the EN221 there is a MTB/Horse riding detour from the GRVC, with ends marked (Quinta da Chinchela MTB/Equestrian detour). The route runs along the left bank of the Côa River until reaching the mouth of the Cabras stream, which can be crossed in spring and summer. After this, the trail climbs the slope towards Qta. Da Cotovia, crossing large farming and forested areas until it reaches the village of Azêvo. The village can be accessed along an unmarked detour. The GRVC follows the hillside along walled roads and footpaths, with the Côa at the bottom of a steep valley, passing through Faia. The final part of the trail runs through estates and large rocky areas before reaching the village of Cidadelhe.
