This trail begins at the E.R.101 regional road, by the Ribeira da Cruz River, which separates the Porto Moniz Municipal area from the Calheta Municipal area. Walking in the opposite direction to the flow of the water you can visit one of the springs that runs into this levada. To carry on to Junqueira you will have to turn around and go in the direction in which the water flows. Be aware that you will find a number of branches going off the levada that take water to irrigation system tanks.
ATTENTION: In some areas the ground is slippery, use appropriate footwear.
