It took me and my wife about 33 min to complete the hike. We took the Church stairs and up. There are signs. Parking can be a bit complicated unless you get there before 7:30am. This hike became very popular, most likely there will be...More

Fabulous views up there. The climb is quite steep and I'd advise to only do this in winter. Drive to the end of Guaratiba (end of Av Burle Marx) where the bus stops. You'll see some guys with high viz vests that can guide you...More

Beautiful place, up a clean trail. Best get a taxi and negotiate with the driver to wait till you come back. They let the meter running so most of them are happy to wait for you. You pay once you are back. We saw a...More

No, you can't. It's a medium climb about 30 minutes more or less and it's all with rocks. But it's a really nice place to go!
