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.

This trail is not so popular, but it's awesome. Lots of monkeys running around. There is a nice breeze even when it's warm weather. No bikes are allowed neither skating or skateboarding, so it's pretty relaxed. Highly recommendable

We had two hours to kill waiting for the line to Sugar loaf. If you are lucky enough to have someone save your place in line, the trail is an easy relaxing walk away for all of the people and traffic.

I are going to Rio and dreaming about visiting the famous Sugar Loaf. So include on your tour a little walk by this track. It starts right by the Praia Vermelha and is about 2Km long. You will have the see by your right and the urca mountain by your left. You will see birds like the Tie sangue, maritacas... More

It is amazing you can see the mountains one side and the ocean in the other! Really beautiful! Maybe you will see little monkeys. And always full of people exercising.
