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.

Pretty amazing view and a unique scenery and landscape compared to the rest of the island. Five stars

Did this trail in May ‘18- it was nice and easy as far as terrain goes. Most of it is in a road with a few steep inclines/declines.

Pretty hike, fairly easy. It's about 4 miles out and back to a lookout on the peninsula. Just navigate out to the very end of ER 109 to find the trail head. Start looking for parking on the side of the road just before you get there. It's a bit touristy but the views of the water and lava rock were lovely, as were the wildflowers in May. We finished this one in 2-2.5 hours.

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!!!

Interesting levada which changes scenery a couple of times. Starts with an open farmland valley and eventually goes into more dense and lust vegetation. Has a nice little picnic zone next to a tiny lake and waterfall and later on the bigger waterfall is very pretty. Some parts of the last section through Levada Nova are not protected so beware.

We actually went with a guide to this waterfall. Very steep dirt road to get to it. Sadly there is some kind of electrical building right at the base of the waterfall that makes significant noise, so the ambience is ruined by it. However the waterfall is pretty and there's a small area for swimming. Just doesn't feel as remote and rural as you'd hope.

Spectacular trail. Also I strongly recommend you go to the boca de inferno miradour somewhat off the trail. It is the most spectacular view in the island!

Easy hike. Nice cafe half way to grab a latte and enjoy the view

Did half of the loop and enjoyed the views.

Easy and full of great sites

Really long tour.
Be carreful with the roads pointed by MappsMe at the end of the tour. Those way are really hard.
