Pico Dos Marins, Piquete

4.9
#52 of 108 in Nature in State of Sao Paulo
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.

    I went up to the peak of Maher on 05/07 day, the access road is very bad in addition to badly signposted, it pays to consult maps and even go with someone who knows, the rise is not very difficult but it is long so if you have in your plans up, prepare physically, also recommend taking a staff (or something) to aid in ascent at the beginning is a quiet trail that can make even the morro do careca, past that it gets more difficult and is a good-hike "up to the top, because it's very tiring recommend go to camp because going up and down on the same day it's exhausting! altogether there are approximately 6 hours of the walk to the Summit.

    In this my second ascent I noticed an increased popularization of the Trip. Maybe because it is a holiday should have at least 100 people. Can be bad, but tb is good. Especially for the inexperienced. So you will always have people who somehow can help. The site is not difficult, but requires close attention, physical, mental and logistical preparation. The base is increasingly structured, and this helps the adventurer. Recommend: good shoes, sunscreen, water (with this bunch of people doubt the quality of the water that you will find on the way). For inexperienced girls beware, many go from "leg" and for staying if dragging downhill end up getting with the butt out. I'm serious! Avoid this inconvenience, I seen cases like this. Of the rest, is to enjoy and admire this wonderful scenery. Is very worthwhile.

    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!
