The ascent on the PR1 to Pico Ruivo leads through a tree forest, which was severely damaged by a fire years ago. In the meantime countless gorse bushes grow between the white skeletal trees and the place has its own unique atmosphere.
A really nice and well walkable tour that every visitor to the island should have on their ToDo list. Therefore, accordingly well attended. About the turn of the year but it was and when rewarded with fantastic views
