“This is a hard trail loop in Honorio Bicalho with a mix of dirt roads and technical singletracks.”— Rafael Porto
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.
