How long is Estrada da Serra do Corvo Branco?

Set high in the Santa Catarina mountains within the Serra do Corvo Blanco (the White Crow's Mountain) range, the road to the summit is mostly paved. It’s called SC-370 (Estrada da Serra do Corvo Branco) and runs between two steep rocky cliffs. It’s one of the links between the South of Santa Catarina and the Planalto Catarinense. The road is 67km (41 miles) long running from Braço do Norte to Urubici.

Is Estrada da Serra do Corvo Branco difficult?

Tucked away on the southern part of the country, the drive is extremely challenging, not a Sunday drive. The last 1.6km to the climb are brutal, with 30% sections and 5 hairpin turns. The drive offers countless turns, narrow parts, steep descents and breathtaking cliffs, with unforgettable panoramic views. Use low gears. Expect very tight curves and viewpoints in each of the curves. Very dangerous with rain or fog. Not recommended for buses or larger vehicles.
