From a distance, the sheer height of the trail and the stairs leading up to it were a bit discouraging. However, we were pleasantly surprised at how relatively easy the climb is. Probably not ideal for anyone with knee or hip issues, but the spacing of the stairs and the small platforms, which allow you to catch your breath from time to time, meant it was a pleasantly quick and painless climb. The view was incredible! We didn’t go at sunset but I can only imagine how spectacular it would be to see it from up there. Highly recommend.

If you are looking for a short and interesting hike that allows you to check the “I’ve been to one of the flat earth’s four corners” box, then this hike is for you. The community has done a brilliant job with stairs and chains, all of which assist the climb. Hiking app AllTrails lists this hike as moderately challenging, but if you are in reasonable shape, it’s pretty straightforward. Takes only 20 minutes up and back.

If you enjoy hiking…or just walking…take the time to check out the view at the top of this trail.
If you are afraid of exposure, don’t worry as there are rails by the steps and chains by the cliffs.

A short hike up to a lovely peak overlooking the ocean and Fogo. Beautiful vista. Not particularly challenging but you are ascending for most of the trail so a good cardio workout.

had a great hike up to Brimstone Head, it was a wonderful day, warm but no blazing sun, the views are well worth the climb which I found easy, I am not an exercise freak, only walk about an hour a day, we even took the long way around to the climb

A nice short stout hike up to an amazing lookout. It is less challenging than Fogo Head lookout. The stairs are well maintained and make the hike friendly.
Parking is nearby along with a bathroom.
I recommend doing this one first then Fogo Head, the views are different and both amazing.

The Flatearthers have a stupid sign up at the top but it's easy to overlook.

This trail is involves a lot of steps and walking uphill but it really isn't too challenging and it is well-maintained. The view above is just stunning. I have beautiful pictures of the sunset. It's definitely worth the trek up!

Easy climb to the top of Brimstone Head on Fogo Island. A sign at the top refers to Fogo Island as one of the four corners of the flat Earth.
