Serra do Xurés MTB Centre

R5 - Ruta SERRA DO PISCO

This shares the same trail as the “Megalithic” Route 3, until reaching the bridge that crosses the Salas reservoir, where we will continue on the right towards the village of Guntumil.
We leave this small village of hardly 150 inhabitants behind to start a long uphill climb along a broad track in perfect conditions that, little by little, gains height until reaching the Refugio do Pisco, at an altitude of 1,395 metres. From here, there is a good opportunity to look at the extensive panoramic view of the Salas valley.
We start the descent towards Portela de Pitões, on the border between Galicia and Portugal, indicated by a framework of stone of the frontier limit between the two countries, a territory dominated by old smugglers and which today offers the spectacular panoramic view of the Cross-border Park Gerês-Xurés, covering almost 90,000 hectares of protected territory in both countries.
We reach the village of Requiás, where we suggest you visit its communal oven, before returning to the reservoir bridge, crossing over it towards As Maus de Salas and share the last few kilometres along the same trail as Routes 3 and 4.
