4.6/5 based on 1,100+ reviews on the web
Located in a conservation area of the same name, Parque Estadual da Cantereira - Nucleo Pedra Grande is a mountain that reaches a peak of 1,418 m (4,652 ft). Its most distinctive feature, and the origin of the name, which means 'Great Stone,' is the large, exposed patches of smooth, bare rock. Because of the ease of access of its gentle slopes, and the large, mostly flat surface area at its peak, many sports and other outdoor activities are practiced here. Try your hand at hang-gliding, paragliding, climbing, abseiling, mountain biking, camping, hiking, tree climbing, motocross, BMX, and ballooning. Those looking for a less strenuous activity can have a go at dousing or crystal therapy (the quartz in the rock is supposed to have therapeutic qualities), stargazing, or you could simple admire the panoramic view and enjoy the quiet, interrupted only by the howler monkeys that inhabit the area.

  • The ride is very nice and the view from the stone is beautiful! It is also worth going to the side of the carp and make the mini trails that have in the Park. There's a lot of climbing, but if you enter the lobby of the core big rock will be almost all the way on the asphalt. Go, bring water and a snack. The bathrooms are clean. The ticket costs 13 reais.

  • Great ride for those who like to do walk, much of the path are climbs, making the heavy track for those who are not used to this kind of activity. Nice atmosphere with beautiful views of the city of São Paulo, it is worth visiting the Carp Lake for a picnic!

  • Although the Atlantic forest that almost all deleted, destroyed, stolen, we can still enjoy this lung that caters to all of us.! Is charming and divine being there. Contact with birds and various shades of green, renew our energies and return all the information of who we are and who we serve. one day is not enough for this contemplation.
