Great hike! With the humidity and different type of terrain this hike is definitely a challenge. It took us about two hours to get to the top and two hours back. This hike has beautiful views of the ocean.

This is an excellent hike close to Sao Paulo, Brazil. The first half is through the jungle and the second half offers some, but not a lot of shade. We saw monkeys which was a treat. The recording is from the parking area to the summit of Pico do Jaraguá. The view from the top gives you an appreciation for just how big Sao Paulo is (The largest city in South America). I am traveling on business and did not have my trekking poles, but was certainly wishing that I had them. Would recommend this hike for sure!

Anspruchsvoller Weg durch Regenwald mit mehreren Wasserfällen. Teilweise sehr steinig. Das Ziel ist das Dorf Bonete, das sonst nur per Boot erreicht werden kann. Am Ende sehr schöne Aussicht auf die Bucht von Bonete.

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 .

Great hike just North of São Paulo. Took an Uber to Alberto Löfgren State Park (about 40 min from Paulista area). First part of the hike is paved but has pretty impressive inclines. We took the split to the left (500 km longer) on the way up. The trail to Lago das Carpas was clay and gravel for the most part. We started the hike early and it was mostly shaded, a plus when it is hot and humid. We used mosquito repellent as it was advised by locals. Never encountered any mosquitos but happy to be prepared. Would definitely recommend this hike.

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.

Amazing hike with different types of terrain! Highly recommend! Bring lots of water . Also if short of time there are boats that will take you back to the mainland

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!!

Minha primeira trilha de volta em casa após dois anos de intercâmbio em Julho de 2019. Adorei a vista e a água gelada. As duas cachoeiras são lindas. Trilha sem muitos aclives/declives e sem muitas pedras. Usei apenas tênis corrida. My first trail after coming back home from an exchange program in July 2019. Really appreciated the views and the cold water. Both waterfalls are beautiful. Trail is mostly flat and not too rocky. Used my snickers and it was just fine.

20 res to enter, worth the trip! minimum 3hr there and back. lots of places to jump in!

Awesome trail to achieve the three waterfalls, the highest one is the most beautiful and needs more attention with the rocks!! Amazing view!!

Trilha de nível mais avançado, possuindo grande variação de altitude, com trechos em que são necessários subir ou descer em pedras para prosseguir. Trilha excelente para os amantes da natureza, atravessando por 3 cachoeiras belíssimas e próprias para banho, sendo a primeira com o poço mais confortável para banho. A vista do mirante, na chegada da praia, é suficiente para valer a pena a caminhada. Para retorno é necessário fazer o mesmo caminho de volta ou pagar a um barqueiro local cerca de 80 reais por pessoa para retornar. Na praia existe área com boa infraestrutura para camping, diversos hostels e pousadas. A comunidade do Bonete é bem simples, não possuem iluminação noturna, caso vai passar a noite lembre-se da lanterna. O MAIS IMPORTANTE DE TUDO!!! Leve repelente ou será comido vivo rsrs

Great trek! The temperature makes for some hard work at times but definitely worth it for beautiful views at the top!

I hired a local guide and he obviously knew the trail through and through. I happened to do the hike on a day when it was 95 degrees and a heat index of 106, which, is pretty rough. However, the rain forest before the summit is quite beautiful. It is full of jack fruit trees, monkeys and toucans (heard but not seen) and a lovely assortment of butterflies. Definitely bring lots of cold water and Gatorade type drinks and snacks. It is physically taxing and can get pretty technical with lots of scrambling. The dreaded carresquiera is right before the summit. It is about 30 meters high. For extra safety, I was roped up. Admittedly, it is scary, especially if you look down. After that, there is still more ascent and some scrambling until you finally reach the summit, which has absolutely stunning views of Rio. I repelled down, which was much easier than ascending. A wonderful experience which provides great memories and photos.

my girl cried like hell complaining I was restricting her water. There's only one water spring in this trail. Anyway, totally worth it!!!

Amazing views but there is very crowded at the weekend
