The Curral Hills surround the city of Belo Horizonte and were elected its most representative symbol in 1997. The natural reserve around the hills spans for 400,000 square meters and is a protected area, allowing only 700 visitors per day. There are viewpoints around the reserve, areas for resting and relaxing and hiking trails. Travessia da Serra is the main trail, going for over 2 kilometers along the ridge. It is the most demanding of the paths, so visitors going on this trail must be accompanied by one of the park rangers. The views from the trail are amazing, and you can observe the rich variety of plants and animals in this place where the Brazilian grasslands meets the Atlantic forest.
