This trail begins in Babosas, parish of Monte. Starts by going down toward the cabin cable car and from there follow the signs. You should go down the valley toward Riverside and then climb up until you find the levada.

Along the way, done side by side with the levada you can admire several species of flora and fauna of the region. Occasionally, there are fantastic views over the bay of Funchal, offering a full perspective of the city composed of a dense set of picturesque buildings that have as background the deep blue of the Atlantic Ocean that bathes this wonderful island.

Further in this trail, you may visit famous tea house where you can enjoy its gardens, cheerfully painted with the colors of the hydrangeas and other flowers that compose it.

At the end of the path you will reach the Palheiro Ferreiro´s area, where you can enjoy a different panoramic from Funchal city.
It is a very pleasant walk to do, filled with amazing landscapes in a harmonious mix of flora, fauna and housing.
