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.

  • Did the trail 3 times is pretty hard! But worth every moment, the view is great even for those who can't make it to the top. This last time I took my 7 year old son that was enchanted!

  • For those wishing to cross over Maher-Itaguaré or beats and back at the peak of the Marins, the recommended is to be prepared for parts that require a little more technique and depending on the physical condition and/or climate, and even the use of ropes in one or two points. Parking is charged 10.00 per day, but it's worth it, has a good structure with bathroom/restaurant/snack bar with a great cup of coffee in the morning, at the end of the trail, there is also the option of bath (U $4.00) and a delicious lunch around 53 ha.and 25 ha beside/25.00. They don't take card, then take money. Phone: Lodge (12) or (12) 9 9709-4527 9 0799-7524. Other information we picked up for anyone who wants to make the crossing, is the shuttle service that can be done with Mr. Clovis (recommended by the staff of the parking/Accommodation), which was in the range of R $35.00 per person, more information (35) 9 9912-6720.
