One of the best waking ways in Rio de Janeiro. One of the well kept secrets in the Sugar Loaf region.

We loved Sugar loaf mountain even though the weather that day was a bit rainy. We also visited the Christ the Redeemer statue on the same day.

Nice place to do jogging or just to look around the coast. Many little monkeys along the track. Safe place to visit.

This is a beautiful, short and easy hike, blessed with breathtaking views in a safe and calm environment. An added bonus is that it's free. Just a short walk from the Sugar Loaf, this trail can be enjoyed during a lunch break.

The weekend getaway inside the city for families and joggers. Could even spot some tiny furry monkeys! 2,5 km in total (to go till the end of the trail & come back). Not bikes allowed.
