Well maintained trail. Easy to moderate. Too rainy and foggy when we went to enjoy the viewpoints but beautiful forest still.

Amazing views but there is very crowded at the weekend

Beautiful location , but this is not a hike , it is more of a stroll . Kid-friendly but not jogger -friendly . Running is strictly forbidden after 8 or 9 am and they will enforce that.

Great city views and lots of good people watching. A very nice respite in a hectic city.

Not really a trail, it’s just the sidewalk along the beach except for the eastern end where you climb the rock. Excellent views from Arpeador. Lots pf places along the way to purchase a drink.

Great experience. I would rate it as moderate and higher, The trail is all uphill with many steep sections, and a handful of small sections where you will need to get on all four due to steepness. Lots of vegetation, didn't see any animals except ants and birds. Take water, you will need it, no matter how mild the weather might be. Trail is not marked by signs, except at the start of the trail, but it is pretty obvious where you need to go. You need to go the Vidigal fable, at the entrance to the fabela go to the motorcycle trailer stand to hire a moto-taxi to take you to the beginning of the trail, cost was $1.25 US each way. You could walk to the start of the trail, but you will start the trail exhausted. Tell the driver you will pay him double if he drives slowly, highly suggested since they drive like maniacs otherwise. Just tell the driver, "Trillha does irmaos", he will know. I wouldn't go right after a rain, trail would be very slippery.

Did this hike in March 2018 and it was a beautiful hike! We were a little spooked after hearing about the robberies but didn’t have any issues. However, would highly recommend you not bring anything of value just in case and go early!!

Did this trail several years ago when we visited Rio for the Olympics. Sad to hear it’s unsafe these days. It was a fun one with a couple really steep areas!

I have done this trail three times in the past 3 years. While it is a great hike, it is also notoriously dangerous. bandits routinely assault trailers. tourists especially are easy targets as they often are disillusioned/unaware of RJ's violence. ask any Carioca and they will tell you the same thing. If you choose still to do this trail, I highly recommend you go early (robbers are not known for being early birds) and on a day of low traffic. perhaps a week day. do not bring items of high worth, bring some back up money hidden in a shoe just in case. For those risk takers out there, enjoy and stay safe!

Very easy trail. 30 min max. Now they’ve built stairs!

This trail is extremely dangerous right now. Lots of robberies. I would suggest you to avoid it.

According to https://www.halfwayanywhere.com/hikes/brazil-hikes/hiking-morro-da-urca/ the hike up Urca Hill is not difficult, but https://www.halfwayanywhere.com/hikes/brazil-hikes/hiking-pao-de-acucar-sugarloaf-mountain/ says that the hike up Sugarloaf Mountain indicated on the trail map should carry this warning: "This track is generally considered a climb and not a hike. There is a fair amount of scrambling up exposed rock faces (you slip and fall, you die) and a section of trail that requires you to climb a 20 meter vertical section of rock (Costão do Pão de Açúcar). Most people use ropes and climbing gear to reach the summit (you probably should too)." So this loop should not be labelled EASY. If you don't have gear, probably it is best to climb Urca Hill and to take the cable car from there up to Sugarloaf and back (about half price, since you won't need to take the first cable car from the base up to Urca Hill).

Easy walk on Sundays. Enjoy the street artist, kiosks and nearby shoppings. Alternatively, you can also ride bike on the cycle lane in middle of the avenue.

Awesome hiking in a sunny day

Nice scenery and easy hike. I saw lots of monkeys and tropical plants.

The walk is very easy, you get the best views of the falls from the Brazilian side. I would highly recommend that you take the extra day to go. Even the “Title Profile Photo” of “Lguazu Falls from Argentinian Side” was taken from the Brazilian side. This side has great views of the water coming over the falls.

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.

Offering a perfect escape from the concrete jungle of São Paulo, the paved trails of the park provide an ideal place for a run, walk or opportunity to relax under the shade trees. While the trail had a high number of people, my run never felt impeded.
