How to get there: Drive on the LU-132 to Trabada, where you turn to the DP-5506 signposted to Riotorto. After 1.7 km you pass the village of Cima de Vila. Continue 1 km more to an information panel presenting the walking routes "PR-81, Ruta da Fraga da Becerreira" and "PR-82, Ruta do Monte Roxal - Teixido". (Roadmap)

Distance: 2h17min/6.8km

From the left hand side of the road starts a narrow asphalt road with a sign for "Fraga da Becerreira" (310 m). In a minute, you branch off left to a track. Later you cross a bridge on the left hand side of the track (17min) (285 m) and continue on a stony and wet path, past the fountain of Gimenas to signposts (23min) (310 m). Follow the sign for "Arboreto" to the right.

You ascend along a path market with white-yellow poles. First the Vilapercide river flows on your left. Soon you cross two bridges made of trunks. Next you follow the poles to steps (31min) (350 m).

Small wooden labels help you to identify the plants along this route. Every now and then, the path is difficult to walk. You cross several brooks, which join the river Vilapercide. When you encounter signposts (56min) (510 m), follow the sign for "Fonte do Acivro" uphill to the left.

Snaking its way through a shady forest the path takes you to the fountain of Acivro (1h04min) (530 m) after which it starts to slope down. When the path bends left, be careful that you follow this path with a white-yellow waymark, and do not take the path that continues straight ahead from the curve (1h27min) (455 m).

Later the brook starts to follow the route on your right. The path comes to the familiar signposts (2h) (310 m). Return back to the beginning of the route (2h17min).
