  • The Park has only a box, with a bathroom for the public. After this point, there is no structure to the visitor. Today you don't charge more, the Park is taken care of by volunteers and receives donations from visitors to your maintenance. Tracks with mato alto, some with poor signage, requiring improvements. However, the natural scenery is breathtaking and makes up for everything! The Canyon Fortaleza is wonderful and the black tiger falls trail is very worthwhile. The track is one that requires improvements (quagmire and kill high), but it's not hard. Upon arriving at the waterfall, cross over the stones to access the trail on stone of the secret, but again Park signage didn't help: because of the rain the River was a little more crowded and there was no indication of the location best suited to cross it, and even if it was safe to do so, we opted not to try for security reasons and for lack of information.

  • Natural park without infrastructure. Don't have toilets and the tracks are full of rocks, but it's worth the ride.

  • First go with time and willingness to walk because it's worth every second. There are 3 tracks, none of them difficult to access. However one has 5,000 km, so you gotta respect the deadline to begin this route (I didn't do this). The other gives you a spectacular view of the walls, towards the secret stone you will cross a river, so have extra shoes. Use a lot of sunscreen and insect repellent (but the horseflies will get you anyway). And be very careful not to take the last selfie of your life! (don't take any chances near the edges). And if you have legs and breath, go to the Park Aparados da Serra, is also very beautiful and worth visiting.

  • Beautiful place!!! Brilliant! Those who like nature has to go in this place. But attention to the weather forecast. On the first day I went to didn't know that, and when I got there in the Park I couldn't enter because the fog was so big that I couldn't see anything, and I came back to Porto Alegre. The second day was beautiful day and everything went well. NOTE * who doesn't like insects better use insect repellent. I didn't take repellent and I was in shorts, took several bites! But it was worth it!
