I wholeheartedly recommend this trail. It encompasses a lot of the diverse landscapes that Monte Gordo has to offer. I guess it could only be made better if you went from this point https://www.wikiloc.com/hiking-trails/cachaco-monte-gordo-faja-de-cima-23157830#wp-23157839 towards Ribeira da Prata. But that would add a LOT more to the trail and could probably not be done in 1 day. Plus, Ribeira da Prata is more isolated so there are fewer cars going to and coming from there. The paths in the natural park are well marked and easy to follow. There are only 2 places where I was a bit confused: 1. right after this point https://www.wikiloc.com/hiking-trails/cachaco-monte-gordo-faja-de-cima-23157830#wp-23157835 the recorded track goes on a path above the marked trail. It's only a few meters above so still visible and they intersect at some point anyway. 2. when reaching the abandoned houses, there are some signs to go towards Fragata or Praia Branca. But you actually have to follow the cobble-stone road. There is a trail sign showing that is the wrong way, so it is a bit confusing. Some slopes are pretty steep and slippery because of the nature of the earth. Especially the descent on the way back. Trekking poles might be a good idea to take along. Also, you'll be walking on piles of pebbles which tend to get into your boots so bring some long stockings that you can bend over your boots... or gaiters if you can stand the heat. Speaking of heat - make sure to bring a lot of water because around half of the trail is on sun-drenched slopes with no or very little vegetation.
