Nice trail with great views of Atibaia and surrounding regions. Rugged with little shade, especially after fires this past week. Trails are not marked, but there are great boulders and a cool stream halfway up. Best for hikers age 8 and up. Bring lots of water as you are exposed for nearly the entire hike.

The trail is completely paved and has a steep inclination towards the end. It should be appropriate for everybody, including kids (since it is paved). You arrive at a spot with a beautiful view of the city. Parking space is limited, so you should plan to arrive early or get an uber. You need to pay a small entrance fee and the whole trail is super safe.
