what about a trail going up 1021 meters inside the forest?
The way to the summit combines sections over paved roads and trails, in aclivities of varying degrees which demand good fitness level. in its forest portions the circuits displays interesting rocky formations and viewpoints overlooking the city's North zone, Guanabara Bay, Bico do Papagaio Peak, Pedra da Gavea, Maracanã stadium and Serra dos orgãos mountains. The ttrail is shaded and develops on slight to medium acclivities until Pico da Tijuca, crossing water sources . There are little drinking water sources and the topografy is uneven. With 1021 mts of altitude, Pico da Tijuca is the perfect point to observe the largeness of the forest of the Tijuca, simple the biggest urban forest of the world.
Pick up at your location, drive inside the Tijuca National Park visiting some famous spots and a 30M waterfall, after that, park the car and start walking through a trail for 1 hr until we reach the top of the Tijuca Mountain (1021m)

Daniel was awesome and the Tijuca Peak tour was amazing. I've been to Cristo 3 times and Pao de Acucar 4 times, and this was no doubt better than both attractions combined.
