If you do only one way -11km- it's pretty easy but beautiful. Almost walking on the same level - not climbing up . Great views all the time . We had some rain shower ,fog and clouds ( January) so be prepared to get wet. Might be slippery, too.
If you miss the bus in Portela it's easy to grab the taxi there ( To Funchal ,6 Euro per person :) ).
