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

Usually cariocas don’t like this trail because there’s no (nice) view.

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.

If you are going to call this Beaches of Rio, you should include the two most populars: Copacabana and Ipanema.

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).

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.

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!
