Beautiful topography, lovely walking trails, amazing views, family picnic area at the top. Our friends who are regular hikers walked up from the bottom. We drove the car and then hiked some trails. Perfect!

If you are planning on visiting this beautiful mountain top, I highly recommend taking along some toilet paper and wipes. Theirs a public bathroom at the top for both male and female but bring hand sanitizes and toilet paper.

The Monte Brasil has all kind of flora, taken since the first Portuguese expeditions to America and also latter from all over the world. It is a pleasure. It has all kind of tracks; from easy to longer. It is urrender by the ocean.

I was surprised to find such a great place to hike so close to the city. It took us 3+ hours to do the whole trail, but we stopped several times to enjoy the vistas and take photos. The trail is well marked, and relatively easy to negotiate, though there is enough climbing to get a good workout. There is... More

Good way to spend a whole afternoon. If you do all the trails you can see whale watching point, lots of old forts, many great parks, and endless beautiful views. One of our favorite things we did on our trip and it was totally free. No need for a tour, can just go by yourself.

My husband and I hiked Mt Brazil on our recent visit to Angra Do Heroismo. It was a beautiful day and we really enjoyed the first part of the walk/hike. We came equipped with a map... but found the directions and signage pourly marked. After walking for about 2 1/2 - 3 hours, we had still not reached the top...... More

We drove all around this area and truly enjoyed the views. We saw several deer and enjoyed the cannons and all of the history of the area. Worth the time.

Definitely a must visit destination if you're staying on Terceira. Make sure to go on a clear sunny day, and you'll see some amazing views from the top of the mountain, of both Angra do Heroismo and the surrounding countryside. It's not an especially difficult hike, but be prepared to walk uphill for about an hour or so from the... More

We started late around 1:30. Most businesses close on Sunday in Angra, so we planned this hike for Sunday. You approach a guard gate at the fort and just beyond the trail starts to the left. The end of the hike is the road that comes down from your right, so you could hike it in reverse as well. Brush... More
