BOCA DO RISCO Trail

Dos trilhos mais belos do Mundo.
Trilho inicialmente feito por antepassados para se deslocarem da zona norte para o sul, onde a pé era difícil circular.

Em 2013, 2014 e 2015 foi sendo alvo de algumas intervenções a nível do solo para que as bicicletas de Enduro pudessem ali circular em segurança e menos perto do precipício.
Depois mais tarde e já em 2017 com a vinda do Enduro World Series - Madeira a organização resolveu fazer uma nova intervenção de fundo e melhoraram o trajecto para que fizesse parte do EWS na penúltima etapa, SS8.
Tem um declive muito acentuado no inicio com passagem arrepiaste sempre a beira do Rochedo, com precipícios de arrepiar impróprio para quem tem vertigens, já na sua metade mais seguro com muita rocha descendo a meio de um vale grande até chegar a Cidade de Machico.

Este trilho é muito famoso pela sua incidencia com a natureza vendo o mar a sua esquerda de quem desce e não é por nada que em 2017 foi nomeado como um dos melhores trilhos do Mundo para a prática do Enduro. Muitas revistas e Filmakers gostam de se deslocar a este sitio para captação de imagem como forma de divulgar os seus produtos, tal como fez a Absolut Black (patrocinador oficial do EWS Madeira 2017) que filmou com os Fundadores da FREERiDE MADEiRA o seu video de divulgação da marca para os seus pratos ovais.

Access Info

Ao sair do trilho das Funduras na casa do Governo, ir pelo estradão que sobe á esquerda até ao fim do estradão, no fim começa o trilho.
