The walk down to the river cai is excellent and the waterfall amazing. The park itself is so much more relaxing than caracol though takes a bit longer to get to. The lookouts are absolutely amazing also and there are quite a few of them

Worth a visit, specially if you have time to spend there and even better if you are fit enough to walk up and down the trails!

Beautiful view. Went there on a drizzly day and had the place to ourselves with just the mists amidst the valleys, stunning. It had rained heavily the days before so we couldn't go down to the river itself, but even without this it was worth the R$8 each. The normal tours or buses don't go here so you'll have to... More

When you enter the park by car, after a reasonable drive through beatifull landscapes on the continuation of the Caracol road, which is partly unpaved, you don't even imagine the beauty of the view from the belvederes located inside the park. From all of them, you see the meandering river well below in the valley, and the forests and hills... More

We went to Caracol Park and were already impressed by the view. Now, Ferradura Park is even better: breathtaking views over the Serra Gaucha. The place is about 15 km from Canela and by car easy to reach. The facilities there are very basic and this makes is so beautiful. There are even churrasco places where you can have your... More

Parque da Ferradura is a private nature preserve that has three lookouts to the Vale da Ferradura (Horseshoe Valley), formed by Rio Santa Cruz. You can walk trails in more than 500 acres of pine forests through hilly countryside. A strenuous two-hour trek reaches Rio Caí near its source. Spotting deer, anteaters, and badgers is quite common! Wonderful place!

The park itself has a very simple structure, but the view is amazing! If you have time and physical condition you may walk down to the river. But it really worht the visit!

The access--16km of a gravel road--to get to this park might offer you a kind of jumpy car ride. Though, nothing terrible since the views still have this untouched quality of the so-called "progress". The "mirantes" are unforgettable. I have been there many times and I assure you that you will be flabbergasted with the views, the silence, and the... More
