The way to Pedra Grande is all paved and the sanitary facilities are quite adequate. From there you can see much of the city. If you are lucky you can still enjoy the howler monkeys walking through the trees.

Take a subway to Parada Inglesa station (Line 1 - Blue). At Parada Inglesa station, there is a bus terminal that you should take the bus 2020 (Horto Florestal) until the last stop.
