Great place to go and enjoy one of the most beautiful scenery in the city. Mixed crowd, safe, nice from sunrise to sunset (access is free, but they close the access during the night). From Zona Sul, catch bus 511 (BRS2) to Urca and get off at Praia Vermelha (same to visit the Sugar Loaf - Pao de Acucar).

Claudio Coutinho Trail takes you from Praia Vermelha to Morro da Urca: it is a paved, safe trail, where you enjoy nature: plants, birds, small monkeys and a wonderful view of the Atlantic Ocean. When yoiu reach the top, the view is breathtaking!

Beautifull view and ambience. Lots of green and ocean. May see monkeys (micos). One of the best options for an "unstressing" walk and if you want more, can hike up Morro da Urca in about 25min.

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
