A trail leading to the summit of the highest mountain in Caraça mountain range.

Rafael Porto

Features River/Creek · Views · Wildlife

Visitors to Pico do Inficionado must be accompanied by an accredited guide of the RPPN of Caraça. This trail is displayed for information only and you'll still need to travel with a guide.

Description

This is a difficult trail due to a great gap. There are short stretches interspersed with series of steps along the mountain.

There are two water points available, one at the top just above the Cascatinha waterfall and another halfway along a stone slab. At this second point, there is a twenty-meter-high crack, which is a very beautiful place to explore.
