The Fenais da Ajuda walking trail is a short, circular route which begins and ends in the centre of Fenais da Ajuda, near the Parish Council, or Junta de Freguesia. It follows an farm track which soon narrows into a footpath which crosses a wood containing various trees (Japanese red cedar, plane trees and acacia trees), which leads to the bed of the Ribeira do Mato stream. After crossing the stream, the path through the wood rises and then broadens into an agricultural track. Follow the signs, and continue via farm tracks, fields, and footpaths until you reach a small fishing port. The port is no longer in use as it is so small and isolated, but it is a very pleasant place to have a dip when the sea is calm. The trail continues up to the top of the cliff, where you can see a spectacular view of the north coast, especially of the parish of Achadinha to the east, and the Santa Iria vantage point to the west. Follow the agricultural track for about one kilometre, passing the Church of Nossa Senhora da Ajuda, until you reach the point of departure.
