Pedra Bonita, Rio de Janeiro

4.9
Enjoy the vistas and some fresh air at Pedra Bonita, a popular spot in Tijuca National Park, sandwiched between Pedra de Gavea hills and Sao Conrado and Tijuca. Follow a 1.5 km (1 mi) uphill trail for about 40 minutes; once at the top, you'll take in some of the most privileged views of Rio de Janeiro. Towering above Tijuca Park's forest at 696 m (2,283 ft), this spot draws scores of hang gliders. Head to the top of the gliding ramp for a restroom and a small bar. Plan my Rio de Janeiro trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

  • Super Quiet Trail and easy level to make although it is not so short but around 30 to 40 min from the beginning of the trail. It's fantastic to stay in front of Pedra da Gavea and see Barra and the south side of the top. Access is easy until the trail but the line that rises until it takes a long time to rotate.

  • From here to Pedra Bonita, you leave the jumps of paragentes and wing-deltas. The ramp is always disputed by beginners, experienced and curious who enjoy the adrenaline. The view is perfect: The sea, the forest and the buildings in the background, only confirm that Rio de Janeiro is blessed by God.
