The Pedra da Gavea trail is one of the most startling and rewarding trail there is, and we want you to join us in it. The summit stands at 842m / 2763ft above sea level. The ascent takes around two and a half hours and, once close to the top, you will probably feel the butterflies.
Besides a steep but short hand-climbing (15m / 49ft) and a few walks on the edge of precipices, there is nothing to fear, it’s all perfectly safe. From up there, the view of Tijuca Forest, Pedra Bonita, Rocinha favela (one of the world’s biggest ghettos), São Conrado beach, Cristo Redentor, Sugar Loaf, Rodrigo de Freitas Lagoon and Barra da Tijuca is simply wonderful, you wouldn’t want to miss it.
