Standing like a natural balcony overlooking the island, Maido offers some of the best panoramic views over its west coast and the Mafate cirque, a remote and isolated caldera. The forest trail running up the slope is accessible by car, but the summit of this volcanic peak--sitting 2,200 m (7,218 ft) above sea level--can be reached only on foot.
