We went from Chugchián to the lake by "Camioneta". We walked down to the lake from the border of the crater then back up. After that we followed the trail back to Chugchilán (Google maps call it Chucchilán, go figure). This is a very nice scenery area and it is not a difficult hike. Highly recommended.

The "camioneta" costs $25 per ride, not per person. You can arrange it with you hostel.

The trail is pretty straight forward. The access is easy from BR101 Km 15. The reference is the "balança" (scale to weight the trucks) just after the town called Garuva. Then you drive to the end of the dirt road where you will find a place to park the car, which will cost you R$10 per car and R$3 per person to use the suspended bridge.

Travessia Vigia Canal 2011-06-04 4 km2.5 mi 4h:51m 8 photos

One hour is enough  to reach the peak of Morro do Canal. This part is pretty obvious and the trail is well marked. After that, to get to Morro do Vigia is not obvious at all and you can easily get lost. Go with a GPS or take a guide or take someone that has done this trail before.

This was a full-day walk through the snow. It was quite an experience since the temperature was always between -4 and -1 and the whole way was covered in snow.

In a weather like this you cannot stop. Keep walking to keep heated.

We left Curitiba to do the Salto dos Macacos, but we arrived too late and it was not possible. The IAP park ranger told us that you must be at the beginning of the trail by 9am, if you arrive later than that you can't do it, as it requires around five hours to do the round trip. So we had no choice but do something easy, Rochedinho.

This is a really peanut butter easy lazy walk.
