RouteEncumeada - Levada do Lombo do Mouro - Ribeira Brava
NotesRating 6/10, Landscapes #31, A bus from Ribeira Brava up to the pass makes this a straighforward walk to plan. Although much of the first stage of the descent is in forest, there are some spectacular views down to Ribiera Brava on the second half of the walk.
