  • The Spitzkopf ecological park is beautiful. Along the trail that leads up to the lookout, you can see waterfalls, feel fresh air and listen to the sounds of animals and the water running. I was very tired, but each step is offset by the beauty of the route. As someone who had never done track before, I have several comments. Don't forget to document with photo! The trail is quite heavy, almost the entire length is rising. I went in the morning in summer, sunny day, and the site is not hot for being covered by woods. Despite this, take plenty of water, because it's exhausting. Do not rely on the waterfalls along the way, because there are some houses along the property and it is not known how the sewage is collected. Were 5 hours of walking, so it's essential to take snacks. I didn't see any garbage man. In the beginning of the route, there are bamboo. Take one of them to lean on is useful. The owner warns of accidents with snakes, we saw along the way. The trail is clean, mostly wide and frequented by families and groups of people. We were served in a way respectful for the owner. As all can improve, I leave my suggestions: along the track with the distance to the viewpoint, improvement of bathrooms, mowing the mirante, installation of strings where the terrain is slippery and unstable, using returnable with essential information to the visitor to be faster (we wait 40 minutes in line).

  • Did the lower track, which comes in a set of a few small waterfalls 2 .... the receptionist (one lady who runs the place) is helpful and attentive. The trail and the water are clean. The location is very very beautiful.

  • The Observatory is simply beautiful, the view from above the Spitzkopf is very beautiful. The trail itself is a little drawn to those with no practice. It took us about 2:30 up and 1:30 down. Of course, this rate can vary depending on the physical condition of each and also by the size of the group, the more people usually takes a little longer. It's good to take enough water, insect repellent and sunscreen. In addition some fruit or other mild foods for the ascent. I loved the ride, however, didn't give 5 Note for some points: the lady who charged park entry (10) was rude to visitors, there is no sign indicating the paths, although the track be well demarcated, has some crossroads where we didn't know which way to follow, I also think you should have a few tips to visitors, talking about appropriate clothing and footwear suitable for performing the walk. Had some people of slipper for example. To give you an idea, we spotted a snake on the path, that is, it would be good to go with a closed shoes or a pair (depending on the heat).
