“Nice hike”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

Busy on weekends, but very beautiful, easy hike that mixes jungle on one side and the waves crashing nearby on the other. You can easily see birds and even small monkeys on the way.

“Great little walk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

Free. 1.25km each way. Open 6am to 6pm. Flat tarmac, suitable for anyone even wheelchairs (a few cobles at the start)
A short walk through overhanging trees where you will see monkeys and birds as if you were out in the forest. Very pleasent and totally secure because of the military presence. Perfect for joggers of which there were many.

“Different Fun Adventure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

Have to take the path through the forest on the mountain. a couple of minutues into the walk you'll see set of stairs (wooden logs placed like stairs). Trust me Take it, for a different kind of experience.

“Impressive view, and some goodies”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

This is a trail where you can walk, run, fish, or just take a look at Praia Vermelha and the Sugar Loaf from a different perspective. There is an additional bonus. Not far from the start, you can leave the trail and climb (walk, actually) to the Urca mountain - be prepared for surprised looks from people who paid the 'bondinho' fare to get there. It is also one of the few places in Rio where you can run protected from the sun, most of the trail has vegetation cover. If you go there early in the morning, you may be lucky to see some 'micos', small primates that feed in the area. Plan your visit: the trail is located in a military zone and closes quite early at 6:30 PM.
