This trail starts at Fajã dos Cardos, located in the parish of Curral das Freiras and follows an ancient path, once used by residents to connect the south and the north coast of Madeira Island.

From here, the track follows uphill until an intersection in Boca das Torrinhas, where it continues downhill until Lombo do Urzal, in the village of Boaventura.
At the intersection of Boca das Torrinhas, there is the possibility to acess Pico Ruivo, following the route PR 1.3 Vereda da Encumeada. The scenario at Boca das Torrinhas, is admirable, provided by the contrast between the top of the peaks surrounding Curral das Freiras, from which we point out to Pico Ruivo, the island´s highest peak with 1862m, and by the picturesque valley of Curral das Freiras.

The presence of exotic vegetation at the beginning of the course precedes an area of lush natural vegetation, which includes high altitude headlands and also laurel forest- classified as a World Natural Heritage by the UNESCO, since December 1999.
