The Forestry Station of Rabaçal, near Paúl da Serra, is the starting point for the trail that gives access to the Risco Levada and the New Rabaçal Levada.
The walk along these two levadas is rated as moderate challenged and is about 11 km in length. First, we follow the Risco Levada to the waterfall of the same name, and then we drop to the 900 m elevation to follow the New Rabaçal Levada, which takes us to the pool at 25 Fontes, which gets its name from the many waterfalls there.
The path is lined with the indigenous and endemic flora of the island, especially the high-altitude vegetation, and there are indescribable views over this protected area. The return to the south coast of the island is through the Cavaleiro Tunnel (about 800 m long).
Adult (+10yo)- €32.50
Child (6yo – 10yo) – €16.25
