“The most breathtaking views!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2012

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 peace that ebraces this place

“beautiful place - for people with hiking experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2012

There is a good view on the canion/river/waterfall basically 100 meters from the parking. But what is really interesting - is to go to the bottom of the waterfall; but the path is slippery and requires good physical conditions and hiking shoes.

“Shabby Park, great views, outstanding hike”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2012

As soon as you start climbing down the steep trail towards the Cai River, the same one that you can see from the belvederes above as a thin watercourse, you will forgive any bad impression about the park limited structure and lack of options besides the viewpoints. It's slightly dangerous and kinda slippery (definitively avoid it if wet) but the green lush and fauna variety surrounding you all the way down accounts for a unique and fantastic experience. And the waterfall in the end is a perfect reward for all the hard work. Alas, if you walk a bit more you can find a sunny spot by the river, between the canyons, from where you can barely identify one of the viewpoints and marvel at the sense of scale of your long walk.
