“A great run to see Pocao/Aqueduct, Feiticeira Waterfall, and Feiticeira Beach in Ilha Grande.”— Erik Fonseca
The trail continues along the beach until you reach a bridge, where there is a park surveillance booth. Just after the bridge, the trail branches to the left as the road continues along the coast. The trail climbs slightly and gives access to the Mirante da Praia Preta and the Poção that is next to the Aqueduct, where the T02 (Aqueduto - Saco do Céu) trail begins.
T02 starts by taking runners through mangrove swamps. The trail is a bit challenging, and runners should be prepared for a tough climb that will require a moderate level of fitness. Continue on T02 to Enseada das Estrelas (Star Cove) where there is signage at the trail to indicate the correct route to Cachoeira da Feiticeira (Feiticeira Waterfall), where you can choose to take a dip on a nice day. It is also possible to rappel down the face of the waterfall with local and certified guides.
If you are making the side trip to Cachoeira da Feiticeira, know that during peak season, the area can get quite busy. However, if you are lucky enough to visit during the off season, you have a good chance of having the waterfall all to yourself.
Returning from the Cachoeira da Feiticeira, run back to the trail and continue on to Praia da Feiticeira (Feiticeira Beach).
