Located in Tapada do Saldanha, deep in the heart of Sintra-Cascais Natural Park, in the beautiful Sintra mountain range. The trail name is given after the geodetic landmark and peak known as Pedra Branca, reaching the altitude of 350 mt. above sea level. The trail is a joyful ride, but gain and maintain the flow during approximately 2,5 Km is not an easy task, yet a great trail to practice and enjoy the natural scenery.
Note: Super awesome with fog and humid ground.

Access Info

Trail begins in a property named Tapada do Saldanha. Access by road EN247, between Parque da Pena and Capuchos
