Please be aware the section between São Conrado and Leblon is permanently closed due to landslides at Av. Niemeyer and three different events that resulted in the collapsing of the suspended trail.

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

It’s just a dirt road, no technical difficulty besides loose sand over hardpack. Some steep hills though, especially at the first 2 miles. For bikers with some fitness, no beginners. And there are many awesome singletrack trails that can be accessed from this main one. Just there are no signs at all. Either ride with a local or download on your GPS from other apps like Wikiloc or Garmin.

One of the hidden gems in Parana State in Brazil, the Guartelá Canyon seem to be only known by locals. There are a couple of different trails, but the most challenging ones require a guide (for reasons that no one could explain). The easy trail is worthwhile your time though and the canyon is more impressive that pictures can tell.
