Fun to ride with the bulls. Start at 1200' elevation and climb to 1800 over and over again. Good lung workout. Full suspension=quicker riding over the rocks.
From the airport, follow the highway towards Angra. Exit teh highway at the golf course exit. Go straight through the intersection (follow the signs for Algar Do Carvao (cave) and park at teh entrance to the cave. Ride up the main main road to the Furnas De Enxofre (Sulphur Pits). Just past the turn off for the Sulphur pits is a cattle gate to jump and follow the trails. No signs, I advise GPS if it is cloudy. Ride around the volcano and exit between two hills and finish where you parked the car at the main road and cave entrance.
Other recommended trails in the same area:
Tera Cha, Porto Martin/Praia, Agualva Magic Bus Loop, Seretta, Biscoitos, and Santa Barbara (3700' climb)
