This short circular trail begins in the centre of São Roque do Pico. It starts with a short climb up an old cobbled path, one of the few that has been kept in a good state of conservation. The most prominent features of this trail are the six watermills along the way, some of which have been rebuilt although others are still in ruins. On the way up you will find an old stone threshing floor, which has a sweeping view over the parish of São Roque. The way back to the point of departure follows a water course for part of the way, whilst the final stretch is down a very narrow lane lined by stone walls.
