Bom treino físico e com vistas lindas do interior da ilha, entre 2.30 a 3 horas, começa com uma subida duma escadaria com cerca de 300 metros de comprimento, bicicleta ás costas, depois desce escadas e sobe mais umas 2 vezes, pouca coisa, depois é sempre a descer num caminho de Betão com pedra, tem zonas de abismo, cuidado, após, tem mais uma descida em escadaria, ao encontrar uma saída para a direita na escadaria, é o trilho até a Encumeada, zonas planas e com pouca inclinação, pedala-se bem, piso de terra batida. Pode optar por descer as escadas sempre até ao sitio da Ameixeira na Serra de Agua.
