Route Summary

The starting point of this single track is just after the start of the “Bermudas” course, in the Prazeres – Paul da Serra direction. It is located to the right of a straight road that ascends slightly.

The “Hunters Trail” is visible next to the fence and to reach it you must open a gate made of heather branches. Always be certain to close the gate as it bounds the grazing area.

This is a technical, descending trail with rocky terrain, roots and some closed bends. Beware of the ground when wet as it can get very slippery.

The “Hunters trail” ends at the dirt road and to reach “Redline” you should take the right. In total it’s about 5 minutes of pedalling through one of the most important grazing areas in Madeira, until you reach the starting point of “Redline” that is located to the left hand side of a closed bend to the right. After a few minutes of pedalling your adrenaline will rise, “Redline” is a fast track with gaps, jumps, roots and bermed corners.

This trail is very popular due to its diversity and fluidity, being purely freeride. At the end there is another dirt road that takes you to the ER 210.
