We walked this route in July which meant it was very hot as it is quite exposed and has limited shade throughout the route. Starting at the Centro de Interpretação in Alvados, it is very easy to find the start of the trail as it follows the same route as the PR3 and PMS which are very well signposted. We thought that this was the same trail and followed this and didn't realise that we were off the route described here until we passed through the village of Chainça. We continued to follow the PR3/PMS signs which were very clear and this rejoined the red line from time to time. At the southernmost part of the route, instead of going steeply down into the valley, the PR3/PMS continues further and goes around the other side before dropping down a very nice singletrack trail into the village. If you follow the signs for PM3/PMS this is 18km +/-. It's over grown in a few small places but overall a really nice hike - probably even nicer in Spring or Autumn when it's not so hot. The description for PR8 above does not seem accurate as this starts much closer to Porto de Mos

Really nice hike. We did it with sun and 32 degrees. There is no shadow during the hike. Follow the red marks and preferably start at the lake so you also end at the lake with the possibility of taking a swim. We did the hike in July 2020 and we were the only ones on the entire trail. About 1/4th of the hike is on the road and the rest is on a hiking trail that I would rate as easy and maybe moderate at times. Take plenty of water with you and put sunscreen on. The hike I would recommend to anyone who loves nature and who likes hikes with very few people.

je recommande cette randonnée aux touristes. une belle boucle avec départ et arrivée sur Manteigas. Nous avons fait la randonnée dans le sens horaire avec une légère montée au début et plus ombragée puis une montée plus abrupte et en plein soleil pour arriver au col. enfin une descente d'abord tranquille puis plus raide sur la fin mais pas piégeuse. point pique-nique au milieu du chemin avec possibilité de faire le chemin de poco do inferno en plus. 2h pour monter et 2h pour descendre très tranquillement. prévoir de l'eau++

This is really a hard trail. It was rocky. Some climbing. Jump from rock to rock. It was hot. I don’t recommend to do this on a hot day. I came across a weir. Wasn’t expecting that. The trail is marked with painted red/yellow markings on the rocks.

Colcurinho is a place of peregrination known around the area. It's a very steep hike uphill to the top. Every year people from all over the villages surrounding the mount get together to hike to the little chapel at the top. Summer in Portugal is usually really hot so if you intend to hike from late-June to mid-September consider doing it very early in the morning. Sunrise and Sunset at the to are absolutely splendid!
