Length: 7.3 mi • Est. 5 h 45 m
Note: The elevation gain for the trail is deceiving. The trail goes through several tunnels that avoid big elevation gains therefore, the elevation gain via hiking/walking the trail is much less than 4,000 feet.Show more

moderateYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarGray Star(52)
Length: 6.8 mi • Est. 4 h 1 m
This trail starts on a beaten earth track, in a zone of pastures. Walk until you reach a water tank. Then turn to the left and start ascending trough a forest of Eucalyptus, Australian Cheesewood (Pittosporum undulattum), Accacias (Acácia sp.) and Kahila Garland lilies (Hedychium gardneranum). A bit further you will also find a few species of “Espadana”, a plant from New Zealand, which was woven and spun in an ancient factory whose ruins you can still visit. Follow the signs until you reach the beginning of a “levada” (water channel), along which the trail runs. Be careful because the trail might be muddy. Along the “levada” you will find many species of endemic plants like: “Uva-da-Serra” (Vaccinium cylindraceum), Green Heather (Erica azorica), Laurustinus (Viburnum tinus), “Tamujo” (Myrsine retusa), etc. During the ascent there are several places from where you can enjoy a magnificent view towards the Southern coast of S. Miguel, the Vila Franca do Campo, its islet and Ribeira da Praia. After walking for about 2 kms along the “levada”, you will reach an open area, with big slopes on both sides and after walking a bit further you will reach the bank of Lagoa do Fogo. In this area it is necessary to be careful with the seagulls, as they might be very aggressive, especially during the nesting period (April to May). The return is made on the same track. Almost all of the trail is included in an area classified as a community site and nature reserve. It is our responsibility to ensure its biodiversity by conserving this natural habitat.Show more

This hike will take you on a circular route in Faial da Terra. It begins near the bus stop. Go up the asphalted road until the fork where you should continue straight by a dirt road, always along the left bank of the stream. The vegetation is thicker and there are several orchards on both banks of the creek along the trail. There are winding roads in paving stones, please be very careful due to its slippery ground. You will have to cross a bridge over the stream to get to Salto do Prego. On the way back, return by the same way, and then follow right on the second fork towards Aldeia do Sanguinho, an old village.Show more

A walk through the Seven Cities lagoons: Blue Lagoon, Green Lagoon and Santiago Lagoon. Most of the trail is on a dirt road, ending with a bit of paved road.

Length: 14.9 mi • Est. 10 h 18 m
The path begins in a small bar with no parking. Along small levadas, you will cross fields to the cliff, which will then head west. The cliff path is very beautiful. The trail is sometimes narrow, but it is not dangerous and offers a very pleasant view of the coast. It ends in a small cable car that was once built to cultivate fields on the coast. It continues on small trails through rural villages to Porto da Crux. Here you should definitely visit the sugar cane factory and on the beach there is again a delicious poncha.Show more
