Outdoor Activity
Pico dos Marins is a mountain peak in Brazil, between the cities of Piquete and Cruzeiro, state of São Paulo. The peak stands only about 1km south of the Minas Gerais state border, but it is located entirely in São Paulo territory. It is part of a short spur of the southwestern section of the Mantiqueira Mountains, and it has an elevation of.False state highest pointFor many years, Pico dos Marins was incorrectly considered to be the highest point in the state of São Paulo. This information could be found in many official publications and schoolbooks. Later it was found that several peaks of the more easterly Serra Fina sub-range of the Mantiqueira Mountains were much higher. Serra Fina's highest summit, Pedra da Mina, on the Minas Gerais border, is now acknowledged to be the state's true highest point, at 2798m. Pico dos Três Estados ("Three-State Peak"), at the border tripoint of São Paulo, Minas Gerais and Rio de Janeiro states, is also much higher at 2665m.Pico dos Marins is still often erroneously mentioned as being the highest mountain entirely within the state of São Paulo (i.e., not shared with Minas Gerais or Rio de Janeiro), but at least two Serra Fina mountains are both higher and located wholly within São Paulo: Pico da Cabeça de Touro, southwest of Pico dos Três Estados and the probable true holder of the title, at exactly 2600m, and Morro do Tartarugão, just southwest of Pedra da Mina, at 2595m. The Serra Fina range is still poorly surveyed, and other higher peaks may yet be found.

  • The end of the road that gives access to the peak is very rugged, could get more attention from City Hall since, I believe, be the main attraction of the city, then you need a powerful vehicle to not suffer a lot on the way (which is dangerous if it has rained because the clay mixture x Cliff). It is possible to climb without a guide (a person must be good guidance), the trail is well-marked Rocky sites just pay attention to the arrows that indicate the path, when in doubt, follow the footprints. There are trail mix (clay), sand and rock during the course. I went to the first wall (half way) by mix of physical preparation and lack of proper footwear, are hours of walking, being recommended 2 days for the least prepared physically and 1 day for those who have an excellent physical preparation and keep the rhythm of the walk (whereas the person is super early already in the base, remember that until she , it takes about 1:00 due to road). There is cold water right at the beginning of the trail and know there are near the top tbm, being useful for who owns the sedentary filter etc For super worth the hike to the morro do Careca. I saw not poisonous animals on the way, with the greatest risk of falling if slipping on some stretch. Anyway, it's worth the ride, I hope one day to come back and go to the top.
