Overview

Honorio Bicalho has plenty of trails to choose from, with easy ones like 27 Voltas Trail to hard ones like Computronics Trail. All the trails can be accessed from the town square in Honorio Bicalho where there are restaurants, bars, and many options for a variety of shorter or longer hikes. This loop is one of the longer and more difficult options with woods, many waterfalls, great viewpoints, and the famous C do Gato uphill!

Description

This hike begins at Honorio Bicalho. From the town square, you'll hike start on the Computronics Trail which heads into the woods. This is a challenging uphill, and it is a multi-use trail that tends to be more popular in the downhill direction, so use caution and be aware of other hikers and bikers who may be descending the trail.

From the end of the Computronics Trail, turn left onto the Cachoeira da Mingu Road. You'll climb this easy dirt road up to the start of the Holocausto Trail. This short downhill is a lot of fun if you are up for the challenge! Use caution if there has been a recent rain, as the trail can be very slippery with loose stones. This can make it very dangerous, but also very exciting to descend as you may have the feeling that you could wipeout at any time.

From the Holocausto Trail, you'll connect to the 27 Voltas Trail, and you'll want to turn right for the short out-and-back side trip to an unnamed but beautiful waterfall. After taking in the scenery, continue descending on 27 Voltas Trail. Use caution as the trail is narrow and htere is a ravine on one side where the stream is channeled into a waterfall that carries water to supply the city. There are not much room for error, and one should be careful to stay on the trail which is quite narrow along this stretch.

After this narrow stretch of trail, you'll hike on the wider and easier 27 Voltas Connector Road. This road is an easy downhill that will connect you back to the town square.
