Recorded on 01/13/2018 in the Municipal Natural Park of Nova Iguaçu.

I started recording when the dirt road practically starts. We got off the bus and walked to the park entrance. Drive to the entrance, but there are not many parking spaces. There is no parking there.
Very cool place to meet. The path is called "geological path I".

No need for GPS: Very well defined with several indicative plates. Easy to do and with no technical difficulty at all (no ropes or scaled). Just be willing to walk. For the whole family.

"The main attractions of the Municipal Nature Park of Nova Iguaçu (RJ) are its waterfalls and wells that are easily accessible from the park's main trail. In addition, there are what some believe to be the crater of an ancient volcano, extinct millions of years ago. Visitation in the park is free and takes place from Tuesday to Sunday. "
...
"In addition to remnants of the Atlantic Forest, the Park houses historical and cultural values such as the headquarters of Fazenda Dona Eugênia (now known as the mansion, built at the end of the 19th century, the ruins of the Dom Felipe club, which operated until the mid-1960s , which already indicated the vocation for leisure in the nature of the area, and the Quilombo, area of occupation quilombola near the stone of Contenda.

Keep an eye on the park's opening hours. Closes at 4pm. Since I only arrived at noon, I could not get to know the whole park as I would like. The guards close. I intend to return early not only to know the remaining wells, but also to make the trail to volcano and stone of contention. I want to know the ruins, the paragliding flight point, the bride's waterfall veil and the sky window of this waterfall.
Reasons to go back are not lacking.

    Legal a descrição. Você vai gostar de ir no topo do Véu e nas Ruínas do Dom Felipe. Duas dicas tem uma trilha que atravessa do Parque para o estrada da Rampa trilha essa conhecida como Trilha do Córrego do Mata Fome, essa trilha tem se prolonga passando por uma pequena represa bem escondida na mata e tem três saídas a última sai bem próxima a rampa mas é bem difícil. No Dom Felipe pega a trilha que leva para dentro do P4 onde atrás da casa tem uma piscina que era utilizada na década de 50/60.

    Valdir_el, ah muito legal saber. Gostei muito da parque. Bem tranquilo. Quero conhecer essas áreas que você falou. É perigoso? Tem o tracklog dessas trilhas?
