In October 2016, a section of the Bruce Trail in the Blue Mountains Club was twinned with the Transcarioca Trail in Brazil.

The 180 km Transcarioca Trail crosses Rio de Janeiro from Barra de Guaratiba to Morro da Urca, at the foot of the Sugar Loaf Mountain. The Transcarioca Trail strengthens the conservation and restoration of green corridors linking the main areas of Atlantic Forest in Rio de Janeiro. The trail offers hikers opportunities to enjoy little-known natural attractions and uncover wonderful views over Rio de Janeiro. Hundreds of volunteers believe and support the realization of this great project.
