A quite difficult trail through the heart of the Atlantic Forest that connects the plateau to the coast region.

Description

There is no infrastructure for the entire way. Exceptions are at the entrance (where you must register) and on the way out. In these places, you'll have access to toilets, water, and a telephone. Also, a mobile phone signal is extremely difficult to get in the middle of the journey.

The path is easy to follow, but due to the characteristics of the environment, and the difficulty and length of the trail, it is recommended to have someone with experience in the region in the group.

Good physical condition is mandatory on this trail. The route is mostly humid, sometimes wet, and for the paved part on a steep slope, extremely slippery.
