The trails in Mangabeiras Park are great for running. There are a lot of hills, some very high, and running on the paved trails in the forest is an adventure. The course length varies too much. It is advisable to bring water, since there are not water fountains nor toilets along the trails. You should not go alone, it is better to go with a group, because some areas are far from everywhere and, in case of an emergency, it is not a good idea to be alone. It helps a lot if you get the trails map at the park administration. It can be dangerous if you go away from the trails. Athletes with disability should be aware that it is a very hard hilly course and some parts of the trials are pierced with holes.
