The first cable car will bring you from the ground station to Morro de Urca and the second cable car will take you from Morro de Urca to the peak of Sugar Loaf mountain.
If you prefer to make the climb yourself rather than take a cable car all the way, you can make the hike to the Morro da Urca station via the path Claudio Coutinho which is located at Praia Vermelha.
