This hike takes place in the middle of the Island, and the scenery is unique from other parts of Terceira. The trail takes you to mystical vegetation such as the Juniperus brevifolia forest. Along the hike, you will pass by smaller lakes which are surrounded by thick Cedar trees (cryptomeria) and other local plants. Along the path through dense forest and native vegetation, it will take you through domes and pathway of basaltic lava rock formation, which shows the work of the volcano (Pico Gaspar),  that erupted 12.000 years ago. Arriving to the viewpoint, you  will be able to see the surroundings and the volcano. On the way down you will walk through the cedar forest that goes along farmland, where you might spot cows or even bulls. At the end of the trail, you walk a farmers road, passing by to admire and even climb the volcano (Pico Gaspar), and back to the beginning.
