The view was good! Many bugs.

Long but nice easy walk with some exposed terrain. We did it on a foggy day and it was quite nice because it brought a out of this world atmosphere. Stop at the old dam which is a good spot for lunch. Not has nice after that section.

Very nice and beautiful trek! There are lots of tunnels there, especially the longest one! Its more than one km long and “funny”. There was a refreshing mineral water falling inside, like a lot of showers! Beware, there is not much ups and down raising meters, its an error because of the tunnels and GPS positioning. The way is all the time along a levada, so almost flat terrain. The waterfall is really beautiful! It ´ s possible to get right bellow the waterfall but the way is only climb a short rock. And more-we prolonged this trek- from the main road on Paul de Serra down into the valley,cca 5km more.
