  • Great trail in the woods with a beautiful view at the end! Avoid the holidays because a lot of people is unbearable rises!

  • The trail requires good physical conditioning. Are 06 km up that in your final third becomes quite steep. (Made in approx. 02:20) A trail is quite recommended to help prevent falls and rises. There are 03 water supply points along the trail, but I recommend taking clorin case stocking up there. The track is almost all closed and lack of direct Sun helps a lot. The view from the top is beautiful. On the other hand if you see Monte Verde, the other St. Francis Xavier. When I was there there was a tent for camping, it is common for travellers camp there to see the sunset and sunrise. The flat area for camping is not so great, so if it is with this purpose in weekends or holidays recommend arriving early. No water upstairs, so it is important to take or take care of supply along the trail. Nor is there any structure, is wild even. The descent also requires care, with branches and loose rocks. At the entrance/exit of the trail there is a place called Smell of Mato Verde, where the owner Silvana offers coffee, snacks and drinks. It's a delight to be able to sit there after exhaustive trail and take a coffee looking at the mountains. From there we can also spot a group of Muriquis, monkeys in the region.

  • I like climbing always at dawn, walk in the trail around 2:30, always with a group of friends and we arrived at the top to see the sunrise. The track can be classified into hard but it's not something absurd, just focus and easy to climb a good. The trail is well marked and you can't lose. The visual from above is phenomenal. If you walk a little further towards the lajeado and you're lucky to get the time very clean, you can see the beginning of greater São Paulo, cities such as Johannesburg and Guarulhos.
