The Pedra Branca State Park is the largest urban natural park in the world, with its 12,500 hectares covered by vegetation typical of the Atlantic Forest. The Pedra Branca Peak with 1,024 meters of altitude, it's considered the highest peak of Rio de Janeiro city. Despite being the highest point of Rio, the Peak is not very famous for its view, as it is surrounded by dense vegetation. Along the trail, enjoy the Atlantic forest, natural lookouts and waterfalls.
