The Atlantic Forest Trail is being built by several hands following the entire mountain range of Serra do Mar and reaching Serra Geral, between the Desengano State Park (RJ) and the Aparados da Serra National Park (RS) including many places of great potential for tourism and nature conservation. In the future it is possible that the Path will extend even further, covering other important areas of the Atlantic Forest.
The route connects several trails and crossings, many already existing and some historic, such as trails in Florianópolis, Caminho de Itupava (PR), TransPetar (SP), Volta da Juatinga, Transcarioca (RJ) and Travessia Petrópolis-Teresópolis (RJ), among others. You can now cover the entire Atlantic Forest Trail using rural roads or highway shoulders to connect some stretches that have not yet been implemented.
