Pico das Pedras

Surrounded by the indigenous Laurissilva forest, the Pico das Pedras Forest Park is one of the best places on the island to get a close look at some of Madeira's endemic flora and fauna.
Mountain biking here is therefore a memorable experience, suitable for all types of athletes.


The trail starts at Achada do Teixeira, which belongs to the parish of Santana, and ends at the Pico das Pedras Forest Park.
Although it is considered of moderate difficulty, it is the perfect trail for those who are starting in the mountain biking world.
This is because it allows bikers to go over different types of obstacles, such as small jumps, quarries or an easy drop (but capable of arousing some adrenaline).


The Pico das Pedras trail is 2.49 km long, which can be completed in around 15 minutes.
The trail has a maximum altitude of 1269 metres and a minimum altitude of 873 metres.
This experience is marked, above all, by the presence of the exuberant Laurissilva vegetation.


In the Pico das Pedras Forest Park, bikers can come into contact with tree species such as cedar-trees, Til, Pau branco and European beech.
