  • The trail is beginner level, very quiet taking about of 25-30 minutes. The view from the top of the Observatory is very pretty and it is still possible to shoot the monkeys who live upstairs. Recommend going as soon as I open the Park and spend a sudden as there are many mosquitoes on the trail.

  • The trail to the lookout point of the Caeté is inside the Municipal Natural Park of Prainha, whose entrance is next to Prainha and parking in front of the kiosk Soul Prainha. The climb itself is very quiet, well demarcated and without major difficulties, taking around 20 minutes. The visual from above is very beautiful and worth taking a little time to get to know. HOW to GET: To go by car, just get the AV. Lúcio Costa and follow the signs. Public transport, you can get the BRT and get off at the station or you can take any bus to Pontal leave at the time of the Pontal rock (Post 12 of Recreio Beach) and then walking or get a Uber (less than $10). Do Pontal to Prainha, are approximately 3.5 km and the road is one of my favorites here in RJ because the path is very nice and still passes through the Mirante do Roncador and the famous beach of the secret that is no longer so secret, RA. :p can walk without fear that the walk is quiet. Remarks:-strongly recommend the use of repellent because throughout the track had a lot of MOSQUITO and yellow fever season. Better safe. -If you go by car, go early because the parking lot is small and tends to fill up before the 8:00, especially in the summer. -At the entrance to the Park has restrooms and a freshwater shower.

  • Did this Sunday the Morro dos Cabritos to the Mirante do Caete. Easy trail, but due to rain was with many rocks and branches in the path. We stopped the car at the entrance of the trail, in a parking lot of 5.00. To start the trail you have to jump a fence, because the track is forbidden character, so if consumed something, let's have the sense to pick up the trash. After the track to go down and get a delicious in Prainha beach. It's worth it!

  • Visual dmsss
  • Good place to go
  • With access by the Parque Municipal da Prainha, the trail to the lookout point of the Caeté is quiet, but with many mosquitoes. Don't forget the mosquito repellent. It's worth the climb of approximately 30 minutes. At the end you will be compensated with the wonderful vision of Recreio dos Bandeirantes beaches.
