Join us for a nice hike up the Morro da Urca, a walking dirt trail located beneath Sugarloaf Mountain (Pão de Açúcar). It's an easy to moderate activity and an awesome exercise. In the end you will be rewarded with an amazing top view of Rio!

We meet at the Botafogo Metro exit at 9:00 and run/walk for 2 km until we reach the Claudio Coutinho track. The first part of the trail is paved and already gives us a beautiful view of the sea. After that, it's all the way up!

The uneven steps of the trail are a fun exercise. Bring a light snack and some water since you may want to rest mid-trail or at the top. There is no place to put your things so take only what you can carry. Even if it's cloudy, sunscreen is recommended. An eventual light rain shouldn't discourage you from joining us!

At the top we'll have bathrooms and filtered cold water. We can rest for a few minutes, enjoy the view, and then make the trip back.
