    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!
