Close do Pao de Acucar, this trail is very peaceful and with a nice view. You can find monkeys along the way.

Beautiful walkway between forest and sea, monkeys, jack fruit and papaya trees, and also safe (it's right beside a miltary base). In the middle of the walkway there is the entrance to a trek that leads all the way up to the first mountain of the Sugar Loaf, from there you can take the cable car to the next one... More

A lovely green trail which is very calm and has fresh air, good for running and walking. I was absolutely fascinated by a group of Goeldi's monkeys with babies passing by unperturbed. And I saw different kinds of birds, quite exotic ones. Highly recommend!

If you go to Praia Vermelha and feel like a walk, take this trail on the Sugarloaf side of the beach. It is paved and on weekends packed. There are beautiful views along the way and a number of birds and tame marmosets. If you are adventurous you can climb Moro da Urca from there on a steep mud path... More

If you like to run or just walk choose the Claudio Coutinho Trail.It is very near Sugar Loaf but as an area protected by the Army,it is very safe.You can run without worry! Go there.I highly recommend

The trail is very light and you have the chance of going up the Sugar Loaf for free(perfect if you are on a budget). The view from the top is amazing and you can come down using the cable car paying just one way, this way you do something different, save money and don't miss the chance if riding the... More

We had already went up to Sugarloaf on the cable cars, but went back to hike this trail. What an unexpected treat! We met tons of monkeys (and fed them!) and birds. Beware: the hike up to the first level of the cable cars is tough - don't wear sandals and bring plenty of water.

One of my favorites places in Rio to workout. The scenario is magnificent, with a lot of trees, a breathtaking ocean view a little monkeys around. Also, you can access Morro da Urca from there in a 2o minutes trail.
