Parque Serra Do Curral, Belo Horizonte

4.6
#3 of 10 in Outdoors in Belo Horizonte
A symbol of the region, and the most prominent geographical feature of Belo Horizonte’s metropolitan area, Parque Serra Do Curral offers panoramic views of the city and the surrounding area. A rocky yet lush 1,035,995 sq km (103,599,500 ha) expanse of land, the park is ideal for long or short walks, and is a haven for those seeking a peaceful yet beautiful location. If you’re feeling adventurous, you might choose to take on the park’s challenging Crossing the Sierra trail, which involves some steep climbing and a high level of difficulty but offers significant sightseeing rewards to those willing to take on the challenge. Be sure to call ahead and reserve a place, and remember to bring a pack lunch as there's no food on sale in the park.

  • The Park is located in one of the most beautiful places of the capital, has very nice viewpoints, exercise equipment and trails that would be extremely interesting if he weren't constantly (if now, March/2018) limited in your extension for lack of resources or even bad will of the public managers of the parks of BH. The part that was is too small for lovers of hiking or who want to explore a bit more the beauties of the place.

  • The Park has good structure with toilets and drinking water near the gatehouse. Not really a trail, a mild and quiet walk. The part that would be more adventurous was closed and the paths in the lowest part of the viewpoint, without signaling, they didn't get anywhere. Must have a trail because we saw several motorcyclists. The lookout is displayed almost the entire city, with the possibility of good pictures

  • We know the Park mid-July 2017. Admission is free and has a beautiful view of the serra do curral. The day was beautiful and yielded good pictures. The trail we did was light and it was very nice to have this contact with nature. Worth knowing. Recommend going with light clothes and sneakers and bring something to nibble on, because in the region there don't remember seeing diner. Upstairs there are bathrooms and water fountains.
