Portugal Map

Great hike. A little of everything. Nice flat trails, some lava rock stretches, some beautiful forest, steep sections, vistas of cliffs and ocean views.

It’s all you want.

Stunning, gorgeous botanical garden. The specimens are labeled, trails easy to follow for all ages. Hot mineral baths are inside the park; admission for all is €8 per adult, or included for hotel guests.

Wonderfull trail, the view is amazing (without clouds) but it's very cloudy and windy.
The end of this trail is on the road, it's not very secure.
But globally it was a good moment with scenic views.

no shade

Excellent hike. This has fabulous views and really interesting old growth forest. For a good period you are following an ancient lava flow down the mountain. A couple of notes:

1. Use taxis! We parked downhill in São Roque and called a local taxi to drive us to the top. Perfect.

2. FOLLOW THE BLAZES. There is a point where you transition from a dirt trail into the forest. Look for yellow and red blazes before continuing!!

3. Prepare for rain/hail! It was a beautiful day when we left but we had to deal with heavy rain/hail twice. Very glad we packed ponchos.

But honestly, fantastic hike to experience Pico.

Loved it! Was really cloudy but it made the walk feel really mystical

Great trail, great views, beautiful Island.

I did this Trail May 2018 was great not a lot of people, great views.

4/9/19 walked Almograve to Cabo Sardao and back. Best part is before the Cabo. lighthouse is not really worth it.

Beautiful trail!!! Have to do a little bit of bush whacking from the main beach to the base of the mountain (back through the forest) if you plan on doing the loop. When we went the little creek coming out to the beach appears to be where the trail used to be so just walk along beside that!

Nice flat trail around the lake. TIP: walk clockwise around the lake to avoid paying a 2 uro entrance fee (which they charge at the entrance to the mineral hot springs)

Short, beautiful vistas of Horta and Porto Pim. A couple very short step inclines/decents. Great hike to do at sunset.

easy, beautiful and fun

September is a fine month to do the Camino.
Not to hot or cold

Great views, acessible walk to everyone. You get a bit of all in this walk, mountain views, see views, lagoons, florest. Great walk for a sunny day.

All though the heavy rain and mist its beuatyfull...scenic and breathtaking....a bit hard because of all the stairs but I enjoyed every second.

beautiful walk around the crater but brutally long walk on the highway for a good 6km back to the car. bring lots of water.

Very nice path around the lake. Part of it is on a path next to the road but most of it is pedestrian only. The part from the church to the hot springs was specially nice, nice trail and plenty of trees.

Amazing views! Would grade “easy,” not moderate.

on Fogo Ridge Loop

Amazing trail but not an ‘easy’ trail. Moderate is more appropriate. Parts of the ridge line stay wet, muddy, and slippery for days after rain. Some short sections are quite steep and require good mobility to get past. This is single track all the out for small patches of gorse and brambles. The best trail to do if you’re visiting Fogo!

Another gorgeous section of the Rota. This one is not so difficult as the one from Porto Covo but also not quite as spectacular. Mixes coast with farm fields. The last 4.5 km are all sand dune and so slow to walk. We found a rope ladder down to the beach and enjoyed walking down there for about a mile before finding another rope ladder back up. The ability to walk the beach is tide dependent.

This is a beautiful trail along the coast. The first third gets you near the beach with lots of tide pools. The last third has wonderful cliff views, accompanied by fishermen and surfers. The middle third is a bit of a slog. It’s mostly flat but you are walking in sand so the going is slow. Bring lots of water and a hat as there is no shade.

mostly dirt roads but stunning views

Very nice walking route. Technically easy but with two ascents of a deep valley. Great views of the coast and valley

Wow! Fantastic views along the coast for the 1st half of the hike. 2nd half is on farming roads through fields and lush valleys. This route is easy to do in reverse if it’s busy (it was for us).

Great views from the ridgeline. Suggest making it a loop by starting in Sete Cidades, ascending to the ridge, descending at Vista do Rei, then hiking along Lagoa Verde to the bridge then back into town for coffee and cake at Casa de Chá....12km/7.5mi

À Walk In the park! Great for beginners. Trail goes through lush forest, so beautiful and Levada ran water (I read it was dry) maybe because we are in March and it rained this week? Many beautiful birds on the way and view from balcões is spectacular!
