Beautiful hike with the electric green erica azorica covering the landscape below 1700 meters and plenty of wildflowers. Can easily be done in 7 hours and no need for a guide (though I went with a group for other reasons). Will cost you 20 euros to enter. They now mandate use of gps tracker (small and light). Don’t lose it as it will cost 250 euros (can purchase insurance for 25 euros more). Good bathrooms and small bar at trailhead in the Mountain House.

Trail is not hard to follow especially with this App which you will need if there is fog/clouds. Don’t go if it is raining. Will be very, very slippery.

At top the views are fantastic, but plenty of good views along the way.

Only wildlife you will see are birds.

At times, lots of people and some bottlenecks.

Overall a must do hike, but you need some hiking experience, should be in reasonable shape, and proper hiking shoes are a must.

Very nice trek! The trail is marked all the way up to the summit, you don’t need a guide.

It was one of the best hike I’ve done! Most people do it in approximately 7 hours. Bring a hat because there is no trees to cover you! You can camp at the top and please go on pequeno, it is juste amazing to see the Atlantic ocean all around you!

Very nice trail with great views and a connecting option towards the ocean and the most recent volcanic addition to the island
