Waterfall Trail in Serra da Cantareira
The Serra da Cantareira, with its immensity, is the lung of the capital, with parks forming an ecosystem of rare beauty in the middle of the city, offering tranquility and clean air. In northern area of São Paulo, the Núcleo do Engordador is the 3rd entrance from west to east.
Let's organize transport by private cars within the whatsapp group, otherwise buses 42 and Protected content bring you close to the entrance.
The Waterfall Trail (Trilha da Cachoeira) has 3 waterfalls : Tombo (10m high), Engordador (18m high), Véu (10m high). This self-guided 3 km circular trail starts at the upper picnic area and ends at the entrance of the Núcleo do Engordador. The level of difficulty is medium, not stiff or complicated, only a few elevations, stairs and rocks.
We will walk peacefully in the Atlantic forest with dense vegetation, tall trees, ferns, orchids, bromeliads and many water resources. And of course, we will enjoy the waterfalls !
Everyone will buy and pack their lunch for picnics, snacks and water. Wear hiking clothes with good sneakers. Do not forget your towel, swimsuit, sunscreen, mosquito repellent.
On the way back, at the Casa das Bombas, historical heritage site, we will see all the machines, dating back to Protected content , equipped with boilers of German origin, which generated the steam which led to the gears of the water pumps and fed São Paulo in water for many decades.
