Description
Waypoints (0)

The dense and deep green landscapes allow an inspiring descent until the beginning of Levada, through the Laurisilva Forest. On more rainy days, the floor may be more slippery through the mud, so you should take extra care in your mobility.

Nice walk however so many people and less peaceful than some other walks we did in Madeira. The waterfalls are beautiful and the walk isn’t too long. Worth going to for the day but not a hugely satisfying hike.

Unfortunately due to weather there were few views which I’m sure make this walk fantastic on a sunny day. Steep hill down for just over a mile. Levada paths quite wet/muddy so wear decent footwear. Cafe food was good. Lovely sandwiches and cake. Nice toilets. We went along to end of Risco to waterfall and then down some steep steps to 25 waterfalls path. Enjoyed walk but sad to miss the views. Walk back up to car was doable and satisfying once back at car. Back to hotel for a G&T and lie down now!!

A very busy main Trail to 25 Fontes. Very easy walking. Not managed to follow the Alltrails circuit as sections of the trail were closed for maintenance. Not very impressive trail. Earns the second star as to make up for the trail closures we went to Lagoa do Risco which turned out to be much more beautiful and somewhat magical place than the main trails lower down. Also, by far less people encountered. From Lagoe we climbed to Levada do Alecrim which turned out to be a pleasant way back to the car park. Very good sunny weather throughout the walk with cool and refreshing feel to the air.
