Did this hike back in July of this year. Epic is all I can say. The views of the Caldeira on one side and the Atlantic Ocean on the other side are out of this world.

I highly recommend this hike.

Tips: a hat, water, & sun screen when it's sunny. It's an expose trail - no shade.

We enjoyed the walk nice and easy lots of photo opportunities on the way around

A pleasant walk in November with only 1 small car on the back of the lake. The high view point is reached only by a narrow vehicle road. Easy bus rise to Furnas from Ponta Delgada.

Go early for best chance to beat the clouds. Incredible view

This is an absolutely beautiful hike around the rim of the Caldeira do Faial. There are great views overlooking the rest of the island and into the caldeira itself. It is relatively easy as there isn't too much in the way of elevation gain.

Everybody tries to park next to the road but actually there is a huge parking lot at the toilet sign, about 200 m from the road if you drive through the gate.
You can also drive to the view point so it meas it is walking on roads not exactly a walking trail.

You walk on the same road that you drive to the trail. As a matter of fact it is not a trail but a road walk all way long. Easy, flat walk but I think other places are more beautiful on the island and deserve to have more time than this walk.

Going to give this a 4 Star because it isn’t really a hike, but want to rate it high enough that you do it- the view is awesome

Grandma friendly and pretty. Park at the lake and add the gardens.

Nothing but cow pasture or busy rode if you start your hike in town

Half of the way is on the road with cars. It's better to do half way and go back. You won't see anything new on this half. I am really disappointed because of this car-road trails all over the island. They have high reviews but if you have something to compare to, it is 1-2 stars. Why you call this a trail if I can drive my small car on it? I don't even need SUV.

View is spectacular but very weather dependent. Be patient and clouds will eventually break!

Short and quick. You can actually drive and park right at the base of the climb/stairs if you’d like instead of parking across the road and walking in. The view is incredible! Absolute must visit.

This hike takes you on a less trafficked part of Faial (not that any of Faial is particularly high-traffic). The ridges are fault lines, hence all the earthquakes in the area. It's a very pleasant hike - a mix of history and scenery.

Nice easy hike around a beautiful lake. Lovely views all around and an abandoned chapel about half-way. Calderas and thermal springs are interesting as well. Love Vale Das Furnas and São Miguel!!!
