Excellent course with stunning views! My GPS says it was 8.8 miles.

Easy scenic walk. I didn’t download the map so I didn’t do the exact course but highly recommended.

I did this route in reverse. Beautiful easy trail with a variety of views.

Short but sweet and beautiful trail. Wear pants as the thistle bushes are overgrown, trail.

Such a beautiful hike. Stunning views the entire time. On the way back, we went for a swim in the Bengali caves, which were absolutely stunning. As it is December, the water was very cold but it is still worth it. This time of year was perfect for hiking and the trail was not busy at all.

I could imagine it being very hot and busy in the summer (although there are many beaches to cool off along the way - which is perfect for summer) I would come again at any time of year because the views are gorgeous!

Beautiful but quite difficult trail. Map a little bit hard to follow as I was never able to get to the end but worth a shot.

Easy path, ridiculously stunning views.

Fantastic trail with a wide mix of terrain and levels. First part is very easy. Second half gets more technical and hilly. Bring a headlamp for all the tunnels! Stunning views!

Loved it

The correct name is - SERRA DE SINTRA

Parking is very difficult to find and is not at the start of the trail. The trail itself is not difficult but I would not recommend it to anyone who suffers with knee problems.

So beautiful! Hiked it in November and the weather was gorgeous. Not warm enough for us to swim but there were a few people in the water.

One of the best hikes you can find on the São Miguel Island! Beautiful views over Sete Cidades and its lake.

We enjoyed the walk nice and easy lots of photo opportunities on the way around

A pleasant walk in November with only 1 small car on the back of the lake. The high view point is reached only by a narrow vehicle road. Easy bus rise to Furnas from Ponta Delgada.

great all around. make sure to do the loop and pet the cats guarding the water

the first section up until the big waterfall is 5 stars. very unique and a great experience. the latter part is on a road and not as good. average is 4.

great trail and city walk. perfect to see the coast

great views all around. just be cautious on the road in the immediate section after leaving the abandoned hotel

Amazing sceneries

Unbelievable trail! Good challenge and great landscapes! This is a must. I highly recommend it!

Amazing views. Hidden beaches. Beautiful sea breeze to compliment your hike.

Very nice hike. Do it early morning because the sun starts hitting around 10 am. Wear your swimsuits as you’ll enjoy some refreshing water on the way!


Great hike, plenty of parking with clearly marked trail.

Took this hike on a cloudy mid-October day. It has a variety of environments, from pastures and cork oak harvesting areas to native forests, wetlands, and the Mira River. Very well marked. Took me just about 3 hours at a steady pace.

one of the best!

Fantastic views and all!! BUT I wouldn't call the part of the trial that you descend and ascend out of the crater easy. That part was not easy at all.
