Very nice hike, especially when the sun plays hide and seek with the clouds, otherwise it can be very hot.

Fantastic walk, not too difficult.

We hiked Pico Ruivo from Pico do Arieiro and back - it was demanding hike but it was worth the effort as views were just stunning- some of the most beautiful views I've ever seen. Some parts are very steep and narrow, so I wouldn't advice taking small children on this hike.

Super hard but worthwhile. It’s breathtaking.

There are construction works on the trail and there is a lot of mud (July 2019), it is very dense (machete with you), but beautiful. The tunnels are long, but they can walk with a mobile phone.

Attention very nice hike but quite difficult if you follow the exact path (and not the arrow signs!) Turn and change direction in unlikely places, you really still have to be on the map to be sure not to miss a junction. Level quite demanding (not 7.9 but more!) + - 4h

most beatifull and hard trail of my life !

The path from Boca do Risco to Espigão Amarelo is niet dangerous at all. It's wide enough to get no fertigo. I've enjoyed the views. Very nice!!

Trail is longer when going up to Pico do Furado. Great views of the high cliffs. Hight of Pico do Furado is incorrect!! It shows 12 mtrs. it must be at least 178 mtrs.

absolute stunning views. I highly recommend this one! Use proper shoes, as declining can be slippery.

Fun trail, to bad it was cloudy. Path is ok. There’s a resting place near the peak.

it is really hard,especially the trail back from Ruivo to Areiro. But magnificient views

Nice walk without climbing in forest along levada but absolutely boring because of almost no views! Definitely not hard,it was easy

The view is like you’d imagine paradise. It’s tough but me and my husband completed - going and coming back - without any hiking gears (don’t do that though). Locals will give you info on how to have somebody picking you up in the end of the trail in case you don’t want to make the way back. It’s a life time experience that totally worth it.

Nice trail, some steps to go to the top but not so difficult. Beautiful view on top!

Easy but lot of steps. Take a lot of water because it could be very hot and there is nothing on this place. Views are magic!

Most beautiful trail we have ever seen. Very well marked and maintained. Safe.

À Walk In the park! Great for beginners. Trail goes through lush forest, so beautiful and Levada ran water (I read it was dry) maybe because we are in March and it rained this week? Many beautiful birds on the way and view from balcões is spectacular!
