The official title of this route is Rota do Azereiro. The Azererio, or Portuguse Laurel, whilst once abundant in Portugal now survives in only a few locations, this route being through one of these sites. More information about this plant and the route is contained in the route leaflets available on the Serta camara (council) website.

Whilst much of the walk is through forest there is abundant birdlife, more often heard than seen.

Route markers are plentiful and the bulk of the route is along wide forest tracks, other than the immediate approach to, and departure from Moinhos da Ribeira the gradients aren't taxing.
