Lovely walk with panoramic views of coast and hills. Completed in just under two hours including stops for photos. Various spring fauna/flora on the descent. Lush despite the drought.

We hiked about three miles of the trail until it started downhill and then returned to our car on the same trail. The trip out was fogged in and windy. The return allowed for better views. The first section up to Caldeira Seca is easy and pleasant. After the short section of road the trail is continuously wet and muddy. This is from drainage as there has not been a lot of recent rain. It would be helpful to have boots that you did not care whether they got wet and muddy. We had tennis shoes but were able to pick our way past the mud. The third section is on a gravel road gradually but steadily uphill. It is dry. The views, when available were nice if not spectacular.

prachtige wandeling. heerlijk 2 uurtjes wandelen met zuid en noord uitzichtpunt.De top is 476 meter Wandeling is goed te doen . Fantastisch gebied

Moderate difficulty mostly in the section just past half way. Not a dog walking trail, unless you have a very experienced trail dog. the lava rock section is very difficult for any others. Given that it rains pretty frequently here, expect lots of mud and slick roots. The scenery is beautiful.

zeer mooi maar redelijk zwaar.

Great walk - found a route up that is not marked and makes a good circular walk.

zeer mooi maar redelijk zwaar.

the views are absolutely breathtaking. the path is well done and unmistakable. however it presents steep descent and ascent and very thin passages. mostly fenced and paved. i loved it. all of it. requires phisical preparatio

Nice out and back along the rocky coast. There's a small village at the end, only accessible by motorcycle or mule. The return is steep, but worth the effort.

Trilho muito completo e técnico. No dia em que fiz estava muito vento e chuva, as paisagens estavam fechadas pelo nevoeiro. Já fiz alguns na Terceira e este é dos melhores

Percorri o trilho na sua maioria em corrida para treino. Algumas zonas é mesmo impossível devido às rochas. Tem algumas raízes o que o torna um bocadinho perigoso em dia de chuva mas é um trilho muito bonito e técnico. Ótimo para uma caminhada de fim de semana.

Super toller Weg zu einem wunderschönen Wasserfall.

Main trail to Risco and then on to 25 Fontes were quite busy. Couldn't complete the circuit as described on Alltrails due to some section being closed off. 25 Fontes were not too impressive due to little amount of water actually falling down. Perhaps best done after a wetter period, if they ever get one. Lagoe do Risco is much nicer proposition due to rougher trail and less people frequenting it. All in all a very mellow walk for resting your legs after some more strenuous mountain trails.

superbe randonnée ! paysage à couper le souffle. je vous conseille de vous garer sur le parking de l'église et de commencer par le levada de moinhos. une fois au bout de ce levada, on a traverser la rivière et on est remonté plus haut sur le chemin carrossable pour rejoindre le levada Nova et revenir au point de départ. Attention toute fois, le levada Nova est en grande partie non sécurisé. je déconseille donc cette randonnée accompagné d'enfants! il faut marcher sur le rebord en béton le long du levada, sans Barrière et au bord de précipice. si vous avez le vertige, cette randonnée n'est pas pour vous!

très joli levada, il est juste dommage de devoir faire le parcours en sens inverse. c'est un peu lassant sur la fin.

attention, randonnée difficile! après les deux cascades, la suite du parcours est condamné suite à un glissement de terrain. on a pu passer mais c'est dangereux... la suite du parcours s'est avéré plus que dangereux pour les 2 grosses remontées. si abrupte que sans bâton, c'était impossible de grimper. niveau sécurité, ça laisse franchement à désirer. à ne surtout pas faire avec des enfants, vous ne pourriez pas faire l'ascension ! c'était des chemins formé par des animaux à flan de colline... extrêmement dangereux. ces chemins n'ont pas été entretenu depuis longtemps, il faut enjamber des troncs d'arbres par endroit. heureusement que nous avons fait le parcours en descente d'abord puis ensuite la montée, sinon, on ne serait pas passé tant la pente était raide. de plus, cette partie du parcours n'apporte pas grand chose en paysage. il est fort probable de trouver un autre circuit vous épargnant cette partie du parcours plus que chaotique!

má marcação

Sans grosse difficulté le sentier est peu balisé. Beaucoup de vent. Agréables randonnée

Unfortunately cannot walk the entire length as the winery at @3 kms. has shut and locked their gate. Large sign states private property and such. If wish to enter you will have to climb over a wall. However, there is a bio-diversity trail with signage helping to explain the flora. A spring/summer walk when the wild flowers are out would be brilliant.

This trail is mostly woodland with some nice elevation. Everything is pretty well maintained. 100% of the trail is off of main roads so this is a great walk for dogs.

Good trail along the cliffs high above the sea. Medium difficulty unless you want to walk the whole thing. Has an interesting ruin in the middle. Much of the trail must have been a primitive road at one point.

Lovely well maintained trail of medium difficulty. Beautiful waterfall, great vistas, and an optional spur trail leading (way!) down to the water by the ruins of an old bath house. Lots of variety on this trail.
