The Pedra Bonita hike is a great option of its twin Pedra da G├ívea but it is much more physical.In less than an hour, with a trail accessible for all, you are at its top to discover one of the most beautiful views of Rio from Janeiro.
The start of the hike begins near the parking lot of the free flight ramp, in Tijuca forest sector C, from where hang-gliders and paragliders land on Pepino beach, 693 meters below, in what is considered to be the one of the most beautiful flights in the world.
It takes 60 minutes of leisurely walking to get to the top. Despite a small difference in level, its route is relatively easy and accessible for all walking enthusiasts.
As soon as we reach the top of Pedra Bonita, and leave the Tijuca forest, we see a spectacular view on our left; it is the southern zone of Rio de Janeiro.
One of the strong points of this summit is to be able to contemplate a masterpiece which is paralyzed before our eyes; the famous Pedra da G├ívea.
For some it is the most beautiful view of Rio de Janeiro. From this point, we understand the grandeur of this city. We can see the entire western area; the avenue of America, the beach of Barra da Tijuca, the Reserva, Recreio to the Pedra do Pontal ... The park of Pedra Branca. It's huge!
