THE ASCENT OF THE MESTRE ALVARO

TRAILS

The Mestre Alvaro has easily accessible trails from the Serra and restricted access to other trails from south. The main trail is a well marked path, but not very clean due to misuse. It is a simple hike, but full of steep hills bordering the valley and a waterfall. The first half of the trail is a relaxing walk over the hilltops, windy just right before the highest peak. The trail takes about 4 hours at an easy pace and with strategic stops for snacks and rehydration; people in good physical condition can make it in less than 2 hours.Recently, the group Guardiões do Mestre (Guardians of the Mestre) have begun to map trails and waterways. They are eager to find out more about the stories behind those trails.
