Exhausting uphill climb but a great workout

Not truly 5 miles, perhaps so on a round trip. Felt completely safe. Guards were present at a couple key points.

Wonderful hike, very few folks on the trail. at trail head authorities took personal info for safety precautions. We felt safe for the entire hike and I am very glad we hoofed it vs taking the tram. We are in fairly good shape but still my legs feel like lead tonight. enjoy!

Excellent hike and extremely safe. There was officers the whole way up. Which was nice to see Brazil making an effort for safety. Trail took us just over an hour and we have good footwear and do a lot of hiking. There was a couple places that had a good incline, nothing dangerous though. Was a good hike and I would do it again, bring water.

Great way to get the Redeemer, I recommend to wear comfortable clothes and bring water or fruits.

A great trail! Do not be afraid of the safety it was fine. The best way to get to Christ the Redeemer, the busses and shuttles looked terrible and crowded. I counted 7.5 miles there and back. It is very hot and humid so bring a lot of water. Saw multiple families of monkeys!!!! :)

Dense tropical forest most of the way . There are signs to avoid getting lost , but other than that it feels you’re in wild and uncharted territory - very exciting . This is definitely a hard trail because there is constant climbing - it will take average hikers at least 2 hours to get to the top .

Super randonnée ! Nous sommes montés depuis le point magasin du Corcovado sans aucun problème pour aller jusqu’au christ rédempteur puis nous sommes redescendus jusqu’au parque lage , attention les pentes sont raides et glissantes . Belles cascades sur les chemins mais pas d’animaux ce jour la.

Great hike. Very clean and no problems. I went from the top down and enjoyed it very much. Even ran into a family of monkeys.

I have been dreaming of visiting the Christ Redeemer for decades, finally got to visit it and it was everything I imagined, the views at the top looking out over Rio de Janeiro are amazing
