Amazing trail. Give yourself 3 days and two nights . Suggestions Hire a mountain guide , June to September , plan water . Deduct 3 to 5 degrees Celsius from any weather forecast .

This trail is smal part of a 250 mile trail . It’s a beautiful site seeing and big part of it is on dirt . Be prepared for raining that’s common in this mountain system.

Incredible! Day one was mostly a hike through thicker woods, gaining elevation in a humid setting. By the end of the day it started to rain and we trudged through mud and rock to get to abrigo açú. Day 2 I call Disneyworld because it was like a theme park of sliding down rocks on your butt, scrambling over rocks, climbing the “elevador” a bunch of rebar steps on the side of a sheer rock face, and mounting the “cavalinho” a fallen rock that I later learned is really on the side of a sheer drop off O___O Day 3 is an easy zigzag stroll down through a tropical forest. Abrigos are warm and cozy, beautiful trail even with clouds and little views. Physically demanding but super fun and rewarding. Loved it!!

As a hiker in Rio for almost ten years now I’ve never heard about this. Be careful.
