The Fraga dos Trilhados is a huge, weather-blacked granite outcropping. , with a more or less conical shape, of steep and almost inaccessible slopes. At ground level, by the action of snow and ice that does not allow the development of lichens, it becomes lighter, almost white. Situated in the environs of the Fraga das Penhas, it reaches, at its highest point, the 1674 m.

Why "the Trails"?

Here's the story: In order to make several caches in the central mass of Estrela, the Trilhados (unofficial group of walkers united by the same passion, Serra da Estrela, hiking, geocaching, companionship) established as goal, also, the conquest of the summit of this imposing and black fraga that does not pass indifferent, mainly to those who travel by the pedestrian route T11, direction Rossim, Curral do Martins, and if possible, "plant" there a cache. Being ready to give up, here we find a way to climb up there. It's not easy, but the sights and sense of achievement make up for it. And it was up there that it was decided to baptize the "our" Fraga of "Fraga dos Trilhados" giving the cache the same name.

Probably that Fraga will even have another name, but as we did not find it, nor after several searches (internet, cartographic maps, etc.) we decided to baptize it, and at least for us it will always be the "Fraga dos Trilhados".
