The newest tourist attraction in the city is 180 km long and connects Barra de Guaratiba, on the west side, to Pão de Açúcar, on the south side, passing through the main natural, historical and cultural attractions of seven conservation units. Of the 25 stretches of the trail, 23 are already properly signposted and can be traveled by visitors. The walks, most of the time, are done inside the forests of Tijuca National Park, Pedra Branca State Park, Grumari Municipal Natural Park, City Municipal Natural Park, Catacumba Municipal Natural Park, Carioca Landscape Municipal Natural Park and from the Natural Monument of the Sugarloaf and Urca Mountains. In addition to the potential for recreation, the Transcarioca Trail is seen as a powerful tool for environmental conservation.

Conceived in 1990, but only inaugurated on February 11, 2017, the trail got off the ground thanks to the efforts of more than a thousand volunteers, the partnership between governments, park managers and various institutions that embraced the cause. From now on, cariocas and foreigners will have easy access to information on the different stretches of the trail in order to get to know the city of Rio de Janeiro from another angle.
