Description

This hike offers an amazing variety of scenery, from green pastures with dairy cows to very well-preserved native forests. 

The trail itself consists of a relatively steady climb of about 500m to the top of a volcanic cone in the west of Terceira island.

The effort will definitely pay off once you check the great panoramic views over all the mountainside, all the way down to the ocean. There is also a small but beautiful crater lake at the top, a nice example of the lakes that can be found in the Azores. 

The descent back takes you along an impressive canyon with a gorgeous water stream, adding yet another totaly different mood and motive of interest to this incredibly diverse hike!
