Parque Estadual da Cantareira, Sao Paulo

(4.5/5 based on 300+ reviews on the web)
With 8,000 hA (19,768 A) of coastal forest skirting the Atlantic, the lush Parque Estadual da Cantareira is a paradise for hikers and birdwatchers. The park is dotted with clean lakes fit for swimming, but one of the best highlights is the spectacular view of the city below. You’ll also find the summer mansion of São Paulo’s state governors located here. Keep your ears open for the music of the birds in the trees and look for the monument to the Tropic of Capricorn that runs through the forest.

  • I found the site very well tended and preserved to keep it that way because it has a beautiful view and excellent trails for walks.

  • Very good to make tracks, however care must be taken when it is, and if you have small children.

  • easily accessible and in urban area, this park is very well maintained, highlighting its cleanliness and organization. the main trail until the big rock, is approximately 6 km round-trip. The ida is practically a single ascent, but on level ground (asphalt) and at the bottom of the Atlantic forest remains. very nice ride, I recommend.
