Skip the trail, just drive up

You don't miss out a lot by driving up, the trail is pretty boring. Trail timing are pretty accurate thru out Azores but not this. Stated 2.5hours but took me almost 4hours... read more

You don't miss out a lot by driving up, the trail is pretty boring. Trail timing are pretty accurate thru out Azores but not this. Stated 2.5hours but took me almost 4hours - partly because there is two side trek you can take, and it's nothing much too. If you really want to walk, walk in the opposite direction stated... More

A great hike for a good weather day up the mountain. Lots of paths full of local flora. Interestingly part way up there is a tiny zoo, though the highlight is just getting to see the city from on high when you reach the top. There are even a couple bathrooms on the way up. Bring hiking shoes if you... More

Park the car and walk to the top to get the full experience and views. whilst it has pretty good incline, it is an Easy hike on flat trails.

There is a walking/hiking trail that you can take out here. The directions and info are right at the entrance. I took a picture of the sign, which helped because there were times I wasn't sure I was still on the trail. There are trail markers, some not as easy to see as others, and times when it seems like...

What a wonderful day hiking here. The views were amazing. The guards handsome. A beautiful park for all to enjoy. A bathroom stop and water bottle refill nice addition to the walk. Not hard. You can finish in a couple hours

Spending an entire day hiking here was totally worth it. Don't miss the caldera and the views from the monument. Shared a little of our packed lunch with the cat colony that lives here. There's something interesting around every corner.

Rented a car and drove up. Very nice to have the time to enjoy it without being shuttled around on a tour bus.

We visited on a sunny/rainy, windy day in Angra as part of a tour with Pristine Azores. I highly recommend visiting as part of an organized tour. We had a car and saw much of the island ourselves but this is a sight that is greatly enhanced by a guided tour. We caught the most vibrant rainbow ever! It is... More
