The trail has 3 falls waterfalls, each one with a different level of difficulty, but none very difficult. The first one is the Smooth Stone Waterfall, my favorite one, with about 35 meters, the path to it is not difficult however there are several parts where you need to cross the river. The second, the Sambaia- Açú has about 20 meters and is great for swimming, just below the fall has a wonderful natural pool.
