Beautiful natural reserve
Oct 2020 • Couples
A peninsula with amazing views of the Atlantic, Angra and the surrounding area. You can even spot the islands of Sao Jorge and Pico in the distance on a clear day! Nice hiking tails - some climbs are pretty steep but the overall difficulty is easy/medium. You can see many animals in the reserve (peaceful deer, cute cats and roosters roaming freely, some other birds like peacocks or a parrot in a big cage) - the animals are being taken care of by the staff of the reserve. We even heard some wild boar noises in the forest but didn't see any. The hike is described as a 2h30min circular hike on tourist maps, but we basically spent two mornings walking around and taking pictures. It's a pretty big place and has many viewpoints which lead you slightly off the circular path. But they're definitely worth seeing! If you come here in the morning, make sure you calculate enough time to get back to the city for lunchtime as most restaurants seem to close by 15:00 (visited in October).

Besides the view I got to see deer and even feed one of them a few branches. She was friendly and it was an unforgettable experience.

Great viewpoint

If you go to Heroísmo you have to go to this place to have a wonderful view of the city. A bit hard to reach and to go out with a car due to the complex mace of small streets but finally you get to it (go to the Main Street even if your gps try to guide you through the mace)

Seeing Angra and Terceira from the top of Monte Brasil was beautiful! We drove to the top but some people hike, but it would be a long hike.

Nice Views Nice Drive.

You can drive up quite easily and the views are stunning. You can also hike some of the trails. If you are driving when you first enter watch the lights as the road is quite narrow and is one way traffic.

Sunny drive
Mar 2020 • Couples
So I am assuming most visit to hike. My girlfriend and I were time pressed so decided just to drive up to the top when the sun peeked out on a Sunday afternoon. This is a great park and we may be back! A fun winding drive that gives you some outstanding photo opportunities.

Hiking

Go for a short or longer walk/hike.
Get a map.
You can do relatively flat walk around east base , or hike or drive higher to major central area.
We did both. Our tour took us to highest point pico des cruzinhas, gorgeous views of bay, military installations still there from WW2. Roosters roaming. Benches and picnic tables if u like.
Another day we hiked along east path once you are in then to pico do facho.
You can also walk around base of old fort, see moat, etc.
We spent several hours there. Bring water.
