An absolutely fantastic walk, beautiful views and not too much climbing. If hiking point to point, you need to arrange transportation to get back to the starting point at Boca da Corrida, as there are no buses. A taxi can bring you back and the contact info is written on the info-board at the Boca da Corrida.

We did the walk from encumeada to the summit of Pico Grande and back instead of going until Boca da Corrida. Demanding day with very nice views over varied terrain. The climb to Pico Grande from the crest is demanding but totally worth it. Acces to the summit by scrambling on exposed terrain. Not for beginners. Watch your step. Overall a very pleasant walk.
