Hiking Pedra do Telégrafo

From Jardim Oceânico in Barra da Tijuca, it takes about 45 minutes by car, to reach Guaratiba where the start of the hike is.

The hike to the Pedra do Telégrafo is 3.5 km at an altitude of 354 meters. It is located in the Prais Selvagens sector of Pedra Branca State Park, in Morro de Guaratiba.

Despite the uneven part, its path remains relatively easy and accessible for all types of walkers and all ages.

There are several viewpoints and beautiful, breathtaking visuals. One of them is known around the world. It is a large, sharp stone with enough room to stand. We really have the impression that under the stone opens an abyss. The imagination of visitors has brought countless creative photos.

Hiking Pedra do Telégrafo

At the Pedra do Telégrafo we have an exuberant view of the forests of the Park da Pedra Branca, Prais Salvagems, Grumari, Pedra do Pontal. It is also possible to see the Pedra da Gávea.

After the hike, I recommend that you take advantage of your location to visit the most beautiful beaches in Rio de Janeiro.
