Geocache Description:

Cache Salto do Prego

aasaltopregoPara quem chega ao Faial da Terra e constata o sossego da vila, não tem a percepção do que o extenso arvoredo a norte do povoado tem para nos oferecer. A bela paisagem que nos acompanha até a cascata é razão para as muitas paragens para registar em fotografia ou vídeo cada lugar faz-nos esquecer o esforço dispendido na subida que temos pela frente.

O Salto do Prego, uma bonita cascata onde predomina a mata de incenso e de acácia.

Chegados àquela maravilha da Natureza procure desfrutar ao máximo do chilrear dos pássaros, do barulho causado pela queda daquela água cristalina e aproveitar a sombra refrescante.

São desaconselhados os banhos na parte de baixo da cascata devido à possibilidade de queda de troncos de árvore, mas no lado de cima tem outras lagoas onde pode se pode tomar banho.

Para aceder a esta cascata seguir o PRC9-SMIG, ver percurso em:
