“This run leads from Abraão Village to Lopes Mendes, one of most beautiful beaches in Brazil.”— Erik Fonseca
The trail starts with a singletrack through preserved and very dense Mata Atlantica forest. At the first summit (200m gain and 2km after the beginning), runners can see Angra and Ilha Grande Bay from there.
There are a lot of roots along the trail which makes it possible to run even in rain season. In some parts, large rocks or fallen trees must be crossed to continue on the trail.
The first beach you'll reach is Palmas where it is possible to refuel water/food from local vendors. Runners will get there about 3km from the start of the run. At the other end of the Palmas beach, the trail starts again (the same Trail T10) to Pouso (or Mangue) Beach, with the same kind of environment.
After another 2 km with an altitude gain of 68m, you'll arrive at Pouso (or Mangues) Beach. From there take T11 which has a little bit more than 67m of altitude gain along its 1km length. This trail will bring you to Lopes Mendes Beach, a complete preserved with native forest, white sand beach, and blue water.
