This trail starts in the village of Cidadelhe. The GRVC crosses the village and descends towards the river Côa, first on footpaths and then on a road, as far as Ponte da União. The next part of the stage climbs along a road as far as the entrance to the Faia Brava Reserve. From here onwards the trail runs along forest tracks and footpaths, crossing large areas of cork and holm oaks, interspersed with olive groves and pastures. The trail passes close to a century-old cork oak and it is also possible to spot the vertical cliffs of the Côa valley. The GRVC finally turns away from the Côa river and runs through olive and almond groves and vineyards before arriving at the village of Algodres.
