Easy hike,suitable for everyone. Just follow the water. Some nice lookouts when the suncame out. We built a small raft out of wood and let it float.

Not for people suffering from vertigo, as you walk high on a levada trail along the edge of the woods. Stunning views and lots of photo opportunities. Easy, flat walk.
