Note: The elevation gain for the trail is deceiving. The trail goes through several tunnels that avoid big elevation gains therefore, the elevation gain via hiking/walking the trail is much less than 4,000 feet.

This was not the hike I had thought it would be. While the hike was easy, it provided next to no viewpoints and the ones there were all provided a view on the same subject. The waterfall was not worth the trip. If you decide to do this hike, make sure to do the Caldeirao do Inferno. The Inferno trail is much more exciting, it has better views and longer tunnels.

Absolutely stunning hike. Me and my partner started at 12 and finished at 6pm but we done the extra extension to visit the inferno which was absolutely more than worth it! Would totally recommend this trail is stunning. Its strenuous and the steps up to the inferno are intense, but a really enjoyable hike! Ps. Ignore my recording, power saving mode was on and it obviously didn't work

Very nice hike! Stunning when you get to the end with the waterfall and it's very green all around. Easy flat walk all the way except for a few steps just at the end.

Magnifique randonnée le long des levadas. Sentier très bien sécurisé. Prévoir une lampe frontale pour les tunnels. Environnement très humide. Belles vues sur le chemin, mais qui peuvent etre masquées si nuages bas. Possibilité de pousser jusqu’à la caldeirao inferno (2h AR) une fois arrivée à la cascade.

Not very much variation in paths, but the views and green cauldron were stunning.

This is a fantastic hike and I think it is being underrated by other reviewers. Sure, don't do it on a rainy day, but on a clear day, you get a decent distance, nice elevation change, jungle hiking, birds, a legitimate waterfall payoff at the end, several tunnels where you need headlamps, and a narrow walk along the side of a mountain that is gorgeous and safe thanks to a well-secured guardrail. This is a wonderful day hike.

Easy and very nice hike that we did under light rain that made even more beautiful and that add some mysticism to it. Very green and calm trail with some exposed terrain. The main fall was beautiful. We did the Caldeira Inferno extension. A little harder with tunnels and stairs but worth it if you have enough legs.... The inferno fall wasn’t a nice has the caldeira verde one ...

Selon moi, un des plus beaux parcours de l'île, c'est un chemin facile. A faire de préférence quand il fait chaud, l'environnement humide sera en effet d'autant plus apprécié par le randonneur. Attention à vos têtes sur certains passages dans grottes (ma tête s'en souvient encore), si possible équipez vous d'une lampe torche ou d'une lampe frontale.
