Trilho da Ecopista do Dão

This track leaves the Ecopista near Quinta da Abelenda and goes back on it near Nagosela, by the bridge over the river Dão on the road between Viseu and Carregal do Sal. Beautiful areas with good views over the river.
To cross the river you can follow the GPS track and pass over the rocks with the bike on your shoulder (impossible to bike) . If you do not want to unmount, climb up the road and get back on course after passing the bridge.
Good rides!
