The WTOC team and Grupo Desportivo 4 Caminhos club selected some maps for self training in similar terrains that will be used on WTOC 2019.
The maps are from FootO competitions and training camps and not specifically mapped for TrailO.
All maps are located near Castelo de Vide and in a 15km radius, so it is possible to have consecutive training sessions without travelling a lot.
Castelo de Vide is about 60km from Idanha-a-Nova and offers low budget accommodation and very typical Portuguese food.
The recommended access point to the terrains are located near the Parking Spots. To enter the terrains, if you find a wired gate, please open it, enter and close it immediately to prevent cattle to cross it.
If you find loose cattle, it will probably run away from you. Although the cattle is not brave, it may be curious. In short, be careful.
To view the map locations, please check the map below.
The maps are available in PDF in the original map scale for printing.
Maps with 1:10000 scale are also available in printed 1:5000 scale from original OCAD files. There is no change in map scale nor symbol resize.
There are no OCAD files available but all maps can be used Free of Charge, courtesy of Orievents and Grupo Desportivo 4 Caminhos orienteering club.
