Paineiras Road (Estrada das Paineiras)

Travelers typically find their way to this scenic winding road tucked amid the hills outside Rio en route to the towering statue of Christ. But locals say this 3-mile path through epic landscapes, waterfalls and thick forests is a destination all its own. Visitors have free rein on weekends, when cars and other motorized vehicles aren’t allowed on Estrada das Paineiras. It’s the perfect time to hike, bike or run here.
