The route

This trail starts in Chão da Ribeira on the main road ER 221 and should only be done by experienced hikers with all the necessary equipment.

The first kilometre takes place on an irregular path that guides you through cowsheds and allotments covered in seasonal crops like cabbages and sweet potatoes.

Due to the abandonment of agricultural land, some allotments are now overgrown with exotic species like Ginger lily, Hydrangea, Eupatory and Pine Trees.

The beginning of the climb is well marked with a sign that indicates Sítio da Terra Chã - Paul da Serra. From there, the route is enveloped in endemic species, like the Canary laurel, the Madeira mahogany, the Lily of the Valley Tree and Tree Heather.
