Full description
Begin this walk going down the tarmac road until you reach the junction and follow on the left, direction Lombadas/ Monte Escuro until you find a pipeline. Continue the tarmac road, around 100 meters and you will find, on your right hand side, a chain that you should transpose and follow along the way to gain access to the Fajã do Redondo Dam. Take the same road back until the same pipeline and follow now the land road ahead of you. Around 500 meters ahead, you should turn left, go around a gate (closed) on your left. This downward road, flanked by Japanese cedars, will take you to the hydroelectric power plant of Fajã do Redondo, deactivated, but you can visit if you call in advance the Company EDA Renováveis.

In this location, you will have to cross a stream, climbing the stairs that give access to a metallic sidewalk. This trail goes along the passageway until you find a steep stairway that will take you to the hydroelectric power plant of Salto do Cabrito. Arriving here, you will have to go right, round the building in order to gaze at the waterfall that gives its name to this power plant.

With the waterfall on your back, continue your walk going up until you arrive to a tarmac road. Turn right, following the sidewalk, you will pass the Bar Lagoa do Fogo and the geothermic central of Pico Vermelho. Before the junction on your left side, you will find a detour on your right hand side, a dirt road and you should follow it. Here, you have to overcome two streams, the second one with bigger flow, being advisable to cross it barefooted. Ahead, you will find a fork, go right, cutting first on your left side. Follow the signs until you see a paved road where you should turn right again, back to the Caldeiras of Ribeira Grande.
