  • It's pretty exhausting the path. Pay attention to where we're standing, we ended up not enjoying much the landscape. Little security. The location is frequented by many people with dubious intentions. It was a nice walk, to talk with the family. But I don't know if I'd ever.

  • Me and two friends we trail in the days 14:15/2017. Our intention was to go down to the station staying at camping, and Provide return by train to Curitiba. The trail is historic and you can find lots of information about your Foundation and etc. .. The degree of difficulty is considered "moderate" considering a non-athlete and sedentária...me not fit at first but not the second consideration. We left at 8:20 the base of the IAP at the edge of the field in four bars, to do the initial course of approx. 7 Km to the "House of Ipiranga". Getting there and following the right for about 300 meters by the train tracks found the waterfall known as "waterwheel" old hydroelectric station, which supplied power to the region. We got there around 11:30 and rest for about 20 minutes. The place is beautiful, with a few small natural pools, waterfalls and clearings that allow camping. Visit and return to the trail. Thereafter the hike began to weigh on me, carrying bag with tent, food, water, sleeping bag, etc. Next stop: "padlock Shrine". On the way there are at least two waterfalls that require a stop and assess the landscape. To get to the lock there is one last hurdle: "the staircase" that descends almost vertically some 100 MTS. (can be increasing but at that point I don't even reasoned over) ... We come to the "lock" near the 16:00 hs. The staircase comes back on track and on the right the sanctuary is an elevated site built in mid-1968 to House a religious image. Following above rail (sent Ctba) for about 200 meters there is a water fountain that also serves as a natural shower. For the adventurers of the occasion as I was like a piece of paradise ... From there you can see the Blue Mountain, the Marumbi Peak ... on bright days and sunny contemplation of nature is required ... the landscape makes us reflect on our existence and what we're doing to thank the Creator for a gift like that. at night, in addition to fireflies also sees the lights of Morretes or Antonina. From there we don't go out anymore on that first day we set up camp, prepare dinner and "erected the flag". The next day, after breakfast and around 8:00 hs we follow the trail continues downhill to the river St. John-the suspension bridge and the River, Taquaral, deserve some photographs that I couldn't register because it was dead ... Around these rivers there are also few places to camp. We hit the highway, which is a T-intersection, which left follow to Morretes and right onto the Marumbi Station near the 10:00 hs and there we climbed towards the station is drawn up for those who walked the day before almost whole and is with the "cacaio" on the back. When you arrive at the first station, Eng. Lange, the "little-practices" as I begin to celebrate finding that "managed" ... ledo mistake ... After this season to climb begins ... more about 880 meters of pure ascent until the Marumbi Station ... There is that "the caboclo call mom" ... the "jedediah butt ..." see the viola in wreck "... etc. .. but we won that one too and we arrived at the station around 11:30 ... "only the dust of the harmonica". At the station there's camping, infrastructure with bathrooms, places to carry out meals, pay phone and so on. Usually the train goes around 15:30 rising to Curitiba, where you can Board back (paid R$: 30.00 per person) I found cheap considering the beauty of the tour. The station serves as a base camp for several nearby Marumbi peak. From there you can climb the own and several other smaller mountains with moderate to heavy tracks plus some waterfalls and viewpoints. I think we did a course of about 18 km in total. The path has several steep stretches and slippery in particular from the point of the original pavement stones of the 17TH century. To make the trail without thinking of camping is good out along with the sunrise. Worth it for the experience.

  • The Itupava path is a hiking trail that goes from 4 Bars to Morretes, crossing the Sierra through the Woods. The path is all marked with stones, so it's hard to lose, but it is also exhausting because of the rocks, which are irregular and slippery. The path takes around 8 hours and there are two options, go the way of truth or go through the Rails. The Itupava is possible stop, taking baths of waterfalls or in rivers, see animals and enjoy the nature. Since it is not possible to drive (since you enter four bars and leaves in Morretes) many people are renting vans or close with adventure tourism companies. But I went from Uber until four bars and arriving at the end of the trail I 1 or 2 km to get the cell phone reception and called a cab to go to the bus station of Morretes and take a bus to go back to Curitiba, very quiet.
