Morro da Urca
Morro da Urca is the first hill of the Sugar Loaf. While the top (215 meters high) offers a marvelous view of the area, the base is also a good place to hike. Often, experienced, skilled mountain climbers are found scaling the face of the hill, but there are also nice hiking trails for your everyday hiker. These trails usually start from the left side of the Praia Vermelha sidewalk near the pedestrian zone "Pista Claudio Coutinho", between the mountain and the ocean.
All I can say is wow! This place was so amazing! The people were wonderful. I had the time of my life! Wow! I can't wait to go back. One thing I disliked was the way some of the people looked at me while I was in the airport. But other than that I had the time of my life!
