Maia, São Miguel Island Map
VIEW FULL MAP

You walk on the same road that you drive to the trail. As a matter of fact it is not a trail but a road walk all way long. Easy, flat walk but I think other places are more beautiful on the island and deserve to have more time than this walk.

Grandma friendly and pretty. Park at the lake and add the gardens.

Nothing but cow pasture or busy rode if you start your hike in town

Half of the way is on the road with cars. It's better to do half way and go back. You won't see anything new on this half. I am really disappointed because of this car-road trails all over the island. They have high reviews but if you have something to compare to, it is 1-2 stars. Why you call this a trail if I can drive my small car on it? I don't even need SUV.

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!!!

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

Easy and full of great sites
