This hike is beautiful. It takes about 1 hour or so to do at a moderate pace. There are various off the track lookouts you can do which give you a great view of the ocean and the town of fogo. Beautiful!

We started this path in the evening so to avoid hiking in darkness we opted not to do any of the small side paths to the wooden look off platforms. The view is excellent from the trail, we completed the loop in one hour. Some...More

We had some time to kill before the entertainment and screeching-in at the Lion's Club ( can highly, highly recommend this entertainment), so walked a bit of this trail and enjoyed.

This relatively short trail is more challenging than one would expect! It is only 4.5 long. However, you get lots of elevation changes. We thoroughly enjoyed it.

Despite heavy wind and cold temperatures we attempted to walk around the trail which we did not regret. Outstanding views from nearly every spot on the trail but particular from the higher spots. Found blue- and partridge berries to taste along the way. At the...More

Lion's Den hike is well worth the time. It follows the contours of the coastline and offers beautiful vistas of the ocean and surrounding shore. The walk is invigorating and fresh. Expect the walk to be 90 minutes or so...it is roughly 5.5 km long...More

The beginning may look daunting for us "older folk" but it was a great stroll. The pathways and boardwalks are easy to navigate. The side trail to Marconi lookout is also interesting. Some of the info boards are weathered but most tell an interesting tail...More

I did 4 of the main hiking trails. This one beat Brimstone Head and Fogo hill hands down. Fairly long hike, make sure you're in decent shape, several very steep sections but the views at the top make the climbs absolutely worth it! LOVED this...More
