  • This location is in the vicinity of the neighborhood of Imbassaí/Maricá and has a trail that takes the stone of the monkey, defined so because several people believe that this stone looks like monkey (this stone of the photo), where from up there we can have a lush view of the Landscapes of the lagoon and beach of the region. It is considered by many that make the sport, a light track, although steep, because the estimated time of its climb varies between a 40 to 50 minutes in closed forest. There are mosquito protectors!!! But it's worth it...

  • Access to the trail is by Estrada da Cachoeira on the Amaral Peixoto Highway, towards Rio de Janeiro. The GPS takes you right to the entrance of the track that has a map board and other information. You can come by car very close. The difficulty is slight-superior. It is a short but steep ascent. No technical bids unless you want to climb the rocky ridge at the end. You don't need this to enjoy the beautiful look of the Maricá lagoon and other nearby mountains. The bid to climb the ridge is not a climb, but it is well exposed. In doubt don't take any chances. As the trail is open 24h, I recommend arriving early, before 8am, with a comfortable tennis and water. Don't forget the repellent too.

  • To get to the beginning of the trail went from Uber Itacoatiara Beach, more or less 30 minutes, up took around 1 hr, some parts are more difficult. Escorredias stone, it's nice to go with clothes and appropriate shoes.

  • One of the best, but the best view of the city. The Monkey Stone has a view of 360 degrees, where one can observe from the valley that is located making the Carreteiro, the lagoon, the beach, among other areas. The ascent is not complicated, but it is of medium difficulty, but it is very worthwhile.

  • Very beautiful place, excellent experience. You for the car at the entrance of the track and already come across with marmosets (little monkeys), do not feed them, the immunity of these animals is extremely low and they usually die of Herpis, the first sight you disdain the ascent, however, soon it is perceived that the thing is not well arse IM, although short (only 235 meters) uphill is well pulled, after 160 meters you will find a rope that will assist you in climbing after trail becomes less pulled and you breathe more calmly, there will be a stretch of high grass and you will be close to the two Stones that give name to the trail. Take your pictures and be careful, your life is worth more than a selfie.

  • Nice mountain. Quick walk from the point where the car parks to the ridge. Between 20:30 minutes. On the ridge part there are some climbing pathways.
