Getting There

Estimated duration: The crossing can be covered in 2 or 3 days, with the possibility of staying for 1 or 2 nights in the camping area. Signage: orange arrows At the beginning of the route, visitors should follow the red arrows for 3 km and follow the fork to the right for the Sete Quedas Crossing. From there, the arrows are orange. Arriving at Canyon 1, there is a sign indicating the beginning of the Crossing. The landscape has several physiognomies, such as rupestrian fields, sidewalks, and the cerrado strictu sensu until the first passage of Rio Preto, where it must cross the diagonal formed by the two orange poles, one on each side of the margin. After crossing the river, go along a historical track from the garimpo era, known as Fiandeiras, passing through dirty and clean fields and entering the rocky cerrado until arriving at the camp of the Seven Falls, near Rio Preto, with water of good quality and capacity for 30 visitors per night. There is a dry toilet located 100 meters from the camping area. Follow the signs to find the bathroom and the instructions for use available inside. The Park does not provide toilet paper, gel alcohol and other hygiene products. From the camping area, the trail continues along the Rio Preto by the rocks for about 500 meters and visitors should be aware of the orange arrows that will point to the orange post on the other side of the river, indicating the best point of the second passage of Rio Preto. Afterwards, the trail continues for more than 6 km through the cerrado rock, past the tower of Mata Funda and ending on the highway GO-239. ATTENTION: The crossing ends at the edge of the GO-239 highway about 12 km from São Jorge and 24 km from Alto Paraiso. Therefore, the visitor must hire the shuttle service on his own.

Campfire is prohibited, use gas. There's no rescue service. Camping only in the appropriate zone.
