Visgueiro Trail


Located in a remaining portion of the Atlantic Forest, the Visgueiro Trail is in the lands of Água Fria Settlement, approximately 18 km away from Maragogi downtown. The main attraction is Visgueiro, an amazing tree reaching over 20-m high, existing for more than 500 years, and that is impressive because of its huge canopy and enormous outcropping roots with radius larger than 50 m of distance. Throughout the trail, you can find crystalline waterfalls, try tropical fruits, see an authentic house made of rammed earth and also visit the Fiber Women Association, where they produce beautiful pieces made of banana tree fiber, harvested in the settlement itself.
