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.

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

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

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 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.

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!!

The trail offered amazing views to the bay of Setúbal and Troia, and we passed through some portions where the trees covered the track, offering a cool breeze and a secluded feeling. At first, I regretted not bringing my dog but midway I was actually happy that I didn't because this trail is NOT EASY. There was this part right before reaching the observation tower (we did it clockwise, that is the opposite direction that was suggested) that was really steep and I often had to use my hands on the floor for balance, plus some really narrow parts where I had to push the vegetation aside. This doesn't mean I didn't enjoy it, I sure did! Just don't want anyone thinking that this is an easy one, I wouldn't recommend bringing dogs or kids with you. Finally, there is no proper parking near the suggested starting point to begin the trail, only on the side of the road. I'd suggest parking near the Capela de São Luis, that is a good starting/ending point and has space for parking. It was my first trail using AllTrails and I was joined by my girlfriend in this adventure. We're really happy with the experience. Thank you to the poster of the track!!

I used to hike this a couple times a month when I lived there in 2015. Great views and a good 1 - 1.5 hour workout. Not many others hiking here, so if you like being away from others, that's a plus.

When I lived in the Azores this was my favorite trail. Not many people there, it was rare to see anyone else. Beautiful views - I liked how it went through a few very different landscapes Also a great workout.

Please don’t try it, the trail is in a badly condition and way too dangerous! Part of the trail is basically unable to walk, you need to crawl all the way, and it cannot even be called a trail, it is just a very steep hillside full of gravel. We almost failed down from the hillside, which was very dangerous. The trail is badly marked or no mark, and easy to get loss. Apart from that, there is nothing special along the way, and you can find a better one, such as Sintra mountain.

Beautiful calm track in low season, perfect for cycling or running, I recommend to turn to right and have a look to salty mountains and flamingos.

Interesting walk into a small, quiet Spanish town and a walk along the border. I took off my shoes to cross a small stream and passed through a couple of gated areas. There are long stretches without shade, so wear a hat and bring plenty of water

je recommande cette randonnée aux touristes. une belle boucle avec départ et arrivée sur Manteigas. Nous avons fait la randonnée dans le sens horaire avec une légère montée au début et plus ombragée puis une montée plus abrupte et en plein soleil pour arriver au col. enfin une descente d'abord tranquille puis plus raide sur la fin mais pas piégeuse. point pique-nique au milieu du chemin avec possibilité de faire le chemin de poco do inferno en plus. 2h pour monter et 2h pour descendre très tranquillement. prévoir de l'eau++
