  • The Park is incredibly beautiful, with stunning views/viewpoints. The lady who answered the phone at the entrance to us was super nice, explained absolutely everything. This Park is a little after the snail Park, access is a little more difficult for having dirt road. We've gone from the snail Park beyond uber, gave some 15 reais. Only the back was complicated, because there is no cell phone reception, no wifi anywhere and to return had to call a driver who had left contact in the Park and he charged 50 reais to take us back to cinnamon. But it was worth it for the experience at the Park, which is full of trails. We decided to make all tracks, among them a lasting 1:00 to go and more 1:00 to come back, the trail arrives at the Brook Hunter is the river that forms the "Horseshoe" which can be seen from the viewpoint of the Horseshoe. The trail is very difficult for someone who is sedentary (has a warning before entering it, but even so we decided to go, he) all been through enough hahahaha, but get down there and see that beautiful waterfall is rewarding. Next has a sort of "shack" that had items like tennis, hanging clothes, a space where apparently there was a fire, a smell of carrion. Seems to have a person living there. I don't quite understand. But we were curious if anyone knows of something tell me, lol. We were a little scared, but we have heard nothing and was quiet. In time to come the trail was worse than ida, because it is a super steep climb, we gave up climbing the trail and went for an alternative trail that is displayed there, where you follow it and get out on the porch. Is a little further away, only less steep, even so, with the weariness of the descent and a bit of the climb, a sedentary person like us, suffers rs. In the way of this trail has a thing delicious water, I recommend getting your feet wet for strength to finish the trail.

  • A wonderful view, with several viewpoints to contemplate: waterfalls, River, mountains. And make a good road to go down and up the stairs.

  • Stunning view! Several viewpoints and trails for all breaths. Dirt road to get there, but in very good condition. We went on a day that had rained, but by the fact that there are many breaks, the course was quiet. To be with kids, we didn't do the trails. There are cafeteria serving lunch. Playground for kids a little old, but in good condition. There was a Mini zip line, but it wasn't working. We're about out of time 1.

  • Definitely worth the visit. You pay $12 for each person. Children and seniors pay less. It has the most amazing lookout canyon of the whole region. If you're adventurous, there are trails that lead to waterfalls. However, they are tough. It's a 400m descent, that takes about 60min. There's no phone signal and no one to help you. You need to take provisions, repelent and lots of water. Afterwards, you'll have to go back up, which is even harder. You can't start that descent after 4pm. It is incredibly worth the time and effort. Very beautiful and peaceful. I saw a tarantula on my way up. Besides that, the place offers a little restaurant with homemade food at a reasonable price. The whole place only accepts cash because there is no phone signals around.

  • I went with a couple of friends, we didn't know you had a trail for arrive near the waterfall. Didn't we take appropriate clothing or shoes! There's a trail in the woods for you reach the waterfall. Nobody reports anything, who sells the tickets, don't you guides in anything. The trail is well drawn, requires great physical effort, primarily to climb (to return). It takes about 50 minutes to get down and a couple more 50 min. to climb. A day earlier it had rained and the floor was slippery in some places, took two slips. There's no one to accompany it, I was alone because my friends thought it was better not to go. I really wanted to get to the waterfall, and a couple who were on their way back they said it was worth it because the look was very beautiful. I took a chance and went in directions I found two guys who would also and asked if he could accompany them to not go alone. We're about 20 minutes and then the second tumble was really afraid. Another couple was returning and I came back with them. I didn't do the whole trail! :( I was very tired! I saw the pictures, the place is beautiful, but again, there's no guide, no guidance, and if you don't, you don't have control of who goes down and if you return! If u are well accompanied, it's worth it if you have a good stamina.

  • amazing view and the preserved nature. the view of the Valley and the River Falls is impressive. There is a high level of difficulty trail with a structure a little precarious. well worth visiting to be in contact with nature preserved in the region. exisye a simple structure for turisyas, however, meets. I recommend everyone to visit in the morning if pretemder do the trail that descends to the River Falls.

  • Horseshoe Park is one of the best of the Serra Gaúcha. The ticket is not expensive like other places more famous (R $10.00), but has several attractions: a lot of nature, various lookouts, trails, River, restaurant, and, above all, a beautiful waterfall! The only drawback is that the access could be better.
