The paved road turns into a gravel road to get to the trailhead, but trailhead is clearly marked. We didn't see anyone else hiking the trail. It is rated as difficult on the trailhead maker. There are some rocky, wet and muddy areas, but not too treacherous. It is probably rated as difficult because of the elevation change. This trail leads to the highest peak on Sao Miguel Island. There are 2 markers for commercial airlines that crashed there in the 40's, which were interesting. We thought it was the best hike we did on the island. The views were spectacular!

Very nice walking route. Technically easy but with two ascents of a deep valley. Great views of the coast and valley

Great little loop, starting in the town of Lomba da Fazenda. Really nice way marking throughout - we also loved seeing all the signs of geologists doing sampling work in the area (all the holes drilled in the rocks). This is the oldest part of São Miguel.
