  • The historic trail was the first call from the coast of Paraná with Curitiba. But it's tiring for beginners on the mountain. My descent lasted 8 hours. It's good to take supplies and flashlight in case you do not complete the course until dark.

  • One of the most enchanting trails I've ever had the pleasure of doing. However it is important to warn that it is extremely TIRING if you don't usually perform physical activities, it will be very difficult to make way. But it's a touch of deep immersion with nature and what we have more pure. The visual that the waterfalls provide, hear the noises from within the Bush, really amazing!

  • Me and my two friends we trail in the days 14:15/2017. Our intention was to go down to the Marumbi station, stay overnight and 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 at the base of the Anhangava, to do the initial course of approx. 7 Km to the "House of Ipiranga". Thence following the right for about 300 mts rail 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 location is beautiful, with a few small natural pools, waterfalls and clearings that allow camping. Visit and return to the trail. From there 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) ... ☺... 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. We come to the "lock" near the 16:00 hs. 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 road to the left goes 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 12:00 ... 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 to get out before the sun rises. Worth it for the experience.

  • Great choice of walking for a day. Regret the great frequency of people without the same goal in each of ipiranga.

  • Beautiful trail through the serra do mar. The ride has 18 km to the station of the IAP in Porto de Cima. A good idea is to start the walk before the 7:00 and take the train back to Curitiba the 3:30 pm on Marumbi station. Careful with the path to the Yellow House, there are many reports of assault on the region.
