Pico Ruivo is the highest peak on the Madeira Islands. It can be reached only by foot, usually either from Pico do Arieiro (3rd highest) after a strenuous hike, or from Achada do Teixeira with a shorter, easier trail. There is an additional trail leading west to Encumeada. Just below the summit is a hut offering simple accommodation and drinks.

Pico Ruivo is 1862 meters (6107 ft) high [ [http://www.madeirahelp.com/madeira_geography Madeira Geography - Madeira Island and Porto Santo Island ] ] and provides some of the most incredible views of the island from coast to coast, but unpredictable weather conditions can make it quite dangerous.
