A long drive from Ponta Delgada, and a 5km loop to walk but it's more than worth it. You park down in Faial da Terra and walk North to a well signposted route. It's rough terrain and a steep climb in places, so wear appropriate...More

Excellent hiking trail with a picturesque waterfall as a reward. The trail is steep and partly muddy so boots are recommended. Do not forget to take your camera with you! The humidity is >90% so technical clothing is an advantage.

From Faial you walk up past a small stream along a pleasant footpath, at the trail marker the path divides, left is very steep so go right and you eventually get to the waterfall. Returning the circular trail goes through a deserted village then you...More

The trail to Salto do Prego leads you to a beautfiul waterfall surrounded by river rock. We would recommend hiking early in the day as it gets rather crowded around the falls by late morning/noontime. Do not hesitate to also do Salto do Cabrito while...More
