Lovely walk with panoramic views of coast and hills. Completed in just under two hours including stops for photos. Various spring fauna/flora on the descent. Lush despite the drought.

Easy “hike” that’s all stairs. Beautiful sculptures on the way up. There’s a road to the top in case not everyone in your party can walk the way up. Mostly shaded until the final set of stairs. Several cafes and gardens at the top.

Stunning views make everything worth it. Clearly marked paths brought relief every time we were not sure where to go. Cliffs, the ocean, birds, the wind. Thank you is not enough to describe how grateful I am.

As described by others. Flat for the most part, beautiful scenery on most of the trail. We found the trail head in town on the “Old Church” Street. Well marked all along the loop. The surprise was the 3 euro per person charge to walk by the Caldeira...attempted to no avail to argue that we were simply walking the loop, we were told parking was free (we had parked in the village so did not have a car to park :) ). Paid the 6 euro and continued our walk.

Quick up hill then across top. Found moor wall but no cave.

I would not recommend this walk. Views are of Sines, a horrible industrial complex, and a lot of the Cork oaks, are dead, or dying. There are definitely more beautiful walks, further South.

Great trail. Very well marked. Castle closed for restoration.

Lovely well maintained trail of medium difficulty. Beautiful waterfall, great vistas, and an optional spur trail leading (way!) down to the water by the ruins of an old bath house. Lots of variety on this trail.

Beautiful flat and easy trail around the interesting crater lake. Park museum has a nice cafe and a 3-euro exhibit which is well worth it for science or ecology buffs.

Не смогли пройти путь, тк спустя 500 метров после кинта де ригалейра и поворота на тропу выяснилось, что идём не той дорогой, а предлагаемая является частной территорией. Очень расстроились, тк ехали компанией и хотели пройти проверенный путь.

Very enjoyable trail in winter with kids. Wide variety of landscapes and trees, particularly along the valley leading up to the reservoir. Mostly unshaded and perfect for a cold sunny day. Very easy to walk. Lovely picnic spots along the valley.

More moderate than easy. Nice trail! You see the ocean most of the time, hear it, and in some point you follow a river and can even feel the ocean. We enjoyed it! In the end (well, middle, just before returning back) there is a nice restaurant. Not many options for vegetarians like us but still it was a nice break.

This place will be a nice geopark, where you can sea the natural history of the planet ;)

Halfway the path was closed. Long detour on not very charming road.

Dec 10 57f clear light wind. We hiked this backward. Should have taken a taxi from VNMilf to PCovo and hiked south as getting a ride from PC back to VNDM was tough. Great views and very clearly marked trail. Mostly along the coast cliff tops. A lot is sandy tracks which were not too deep but added to it. Not a lot of altitude gain so we were able to complete in 5 hours without pushing too hard. Did the VNDM to Almograve the next day and much preferred this days hiking and views.

Quite possibly the best trail we've hiked in São Miguel. In my opinion the current average of 4.2 doesn't make justice. It has a kind of enchanted valley with a waterfall near the ocean soon after the start. Another valley with benches and tables perfect to stop for snacks/drinks near the ocean. You can also visit the famous Poça Azul where I refreshed myself after such vigorous pace

Really pleasant hike to do. It has a nice waterfall (Salto do Prego), some friends always welcoming food (wild chickens and cats) and a really cute village apparently lost in the nature (Sanguinho), that surprisingly had a café open that we used as shelter from the pouring rain. You won't regret it ;)

Incredible views and always with wind breeze to refresh. You are able to spot some fossils as well.
