Great view and amazing people around! Luckily there were not as much people at the end of the day as usually when I was on this trail.

One of the best trails I've done. Plenty of (private) parking available at the start. Crazy views at the end. This trail is hardcore, specially if you decide to go up the second mountain after you reach the beach. The second mountain is very steep, almost like rock climbing.

I also did the hike to Christ the Redeemer on Corcovado leaving from tijuca. It is very steep and there is not a lot of information to be found online. It is possible to hike the same way down and save purchasing the train ticket down, although the people selling tickets to christ the redeemer will try to tell you otherwise. There is no better way to see Christ the Redeemer!

I actually hiked the trail that leads to the Cristo Redentor (Christ the Redeemer) of Corcovado but I can't find it on this app. Anyhow, very challenging trail including rock climbing and hanging onto root systems to pull yourself up. The monkeys kept us company! Glad though they weren't mean and I didn't encounter a giant snake in my path!
