The Single-Tracks in the Mediterranean Forest Self-Guided

Mountain Bike | Self-Guided | Landscape
 x

This Mountain Bike Tour takes place within a dense Mediterranean forest.

The overall difficulty level of this tour is 2, Moderate (level 2.4 between 1~5, precisely). It is recommended for enthusiast bikers.

Starting this bike tour in Palmela on the top of the hill, we start riding down to the town center and then enter our first trail which is known as “the trail of the windmills”. This trail takes us to a succession of old windmills which in the old times were used to grind the flour to make bread for everybody in the village. We can also see some ruins in this trail, which indicate that in the past there were people living here.

Our mountain bike tour continues, and we follow trails with dense vegetation that lead us to a Mediterranean forest with luxuriant vegetation. This is amazing! Here we feel as if we were in a rain forest with our bike, this is the Natural Park of Arrabida Hills.

After several fun descents, it is time to cycle back to Palmela. But to do that, our legs must be strong and climb back the way to get there.
