Overall it's a rather easy and pleasant trail. Takes you throughout the parish of Pechao showing its heritage and people. You may come across some dogs in the north part of the route. In my case forced me to turn back as they were at least 5.

this trail doesn't include the totality of the real trail. it ends at the top of the mountain at 1500+ meters in WWII tungsten mines. it's a moderated but very pleasant trail.

Great trail! Love it. Be advised that there are some muddy sports, nothing risky but challenging.

Most parts of the route are good for bicycle, not very interesting for walking.

Perfect intro to Algarve/southern coastline. Only few steep climbs, good direction signs, astounding views.

fantastic views, lovely flowers. quite muddy after rains the day before. steep descend & ascend halfway to a ruïne on a cliff, doable with a baby in a carrier. actual trail seems slightly lower (ie. closer to the sea) than the version on the map but still easy to follow. some vague blue signs seem to mark the track (we only noticed on the way back)

It would have been a great trail, with stunning clifftop views if it wasn’t for the thick spiky overgrown bushes and trees on the path. We ended up with many bloody scratches, and progress on the path was literally painfully slow. In its current state, the path is barely passable

Great hike!! worth the hard work. The views are amazing, take lots of water and a torch for the tunnels. Went during September 2019.

A nice and interesting trail. not an official one, so don't expect signs of any kind. The path crosses private property. Sometime the gates are closed, but your free to proceed as long you don't forget to close them (because of the animals). Extraordinary view at lakeside. Reccomend

Very nice walk. A bit difficult to find the starting point - it's basically the first little path on the right after you get off the main road. Nicely connects to other paths.

Nice walk. Not to much shade and quite a lot of people. Beach is quite impressive - worth climbing down/up

Starts With some difficult but then it’s easy. Nice views. Not recommended for young children

this is a nice walk. if you're going to leave the main route to walk along the cliffs via Praia de Ursa you should be a very confident hiker, have good shoes and poles. there are some very, very steep rocky sections and some climbing is necessary.

Nice and beatifull nature spot. Unfurtunatelly, 2/3 of the trail are in terrible conditions. For most of the time no signals or even path. Need urgent maintenance.

Top!

Nice trail, was easy to bring two dogs with, except for the most northern, where it is easier to follow the track instead of the small trail. I kid you not, I took nearly 30 ticks of the dogs, and that trail is really covered with tall grass now. But that's the only thing to concern, other than that it's cool to bring dogs. Right on top of descida das vacas there is a platform where you can sit and just admire the beauty of Arrábida. Thank you to the poster of the track!!
