Via Rápida is a mixed trail, starting at the top of Lagoa do Fogo and ending in Água de Pau.
The trails start with a soft but rocky climb, leading you to a super rocky and technical descend, which faces one of the most beautiful views of São Miguel.
Since this trail doesn't have a clear path to follow, it's better to keep an eye on the GPS track.
