This loop starts at the entrance of the city of Nova Lima directly in front of the park Rego dos carrapatos. You'll get a singletrack trail all covered by the shade of the trees with intense downhills, creek crossings and endless climbs.
Head past the lake with a beautiful view. After arriving next to the park again, you can do a short add on along the Rua de Sebastio Oliveira
, a short section of paved road to climb to the viewpoint of the cross. After this, you start the beautiful stretch through the Rego dos Carrapatos park until you climb back up to the point of entry.
