Vereda Do Urzal – PR 2

This 10.6 km trail takes 4.30 hours and begins at Fajã dos Cardos, in Curral das Freiras, and follows an old path that connects the south coast and the north coast of Madeira Island, ending in Boaventura. The trail is always uphill until we reach Boca das Torrinhas, and from here on it is always downhill until Lombo do Urzal, in the parish of Boaventura. The possibility of accessing Pico Ruivo is provided from the existing connection to the trail PR1.3 – Vereda da Encumeada, at the bifurcation at Boca das Torrinhas. The scenery at Boca das Torrinhas is admirable, both because of the contrast between the peaks that surround Nuns Valley, the highest on the island, Pico Ruivo (1862m), and the panoramic view of the valley of Nuns Valley. The presence of exotic vegetation at the start of the trail precedes a luxuriant area of natural vegetation, both altitude vegetation and Laurissilva forest – classified as World Natural Heritage by UNESCO, since December 1999.
