The Pico da Tijuca Hiking Tour will take you to Tijuca Peak, a mountain that stands 1022 meters (3352 feet) of altitude, and is the highest point inside the Tijuca Forest national park, and the second highest mountain in the city. The trail starts at a cozy location inside the park, called Bom Retiro, with a large parking lot and restrooms. It is mostly sheltered and considered to be easy even for first timers. Small mammals like raccoons and sagui monkeys, as well as different species of birds may be seen along the way.
