Pedra da Gávea is one of the tallest mountains in the world that terminated directly into the ocean and is one of the best places to soak in the site of Rio de Janiero. The flat top of the mountain is capped with a 150 m tall layer of granite. The nearest metro stop is Jardim Oceânico which leaves you with a walk of about 1.4 mi / 2.3 km to the trailhead.
