Resumen

The Mata do Pau-Ferro State Park Conservation Unit (UC) is located in the municipality of Areia, state of Paraíba, Northeastern Brazil. UC does not have a detailed trail system. In light of the above, this article drew up a mapping of the most used trails by tourists who frequent the Park. The methodological procedures consisted of recording the coordinates of the trails using a Global Positioning System – GPS and photographic captures of the main attractions along the paths. Also, using ArcGIS 10.2 software, the environmental variables slope, terrain conditions, vegetation cover and drainage were added to obtain the difficulty classes of the trails, using as references Silva (2016), Silva, Lima & Panchaud (2016) and Silva & Palhares (2020). As a result, 4 trails, 2 integrations and 4 main points that function as tourist attractions were mapped. Regarding the difficulty classes of the trails, 67.41% of the trail system was classified as “easy”, a context that shows the potential to receive a diverse public of visitors.
