Amazing experience!!!

This was a hike conducted at El Yunque National Park, including a hike to the waterfall, and through the El Yunque trail to the peak and then to the observation tower.

It's a difficult Trail, but worth it. I recommend to not take kids to this Trail. Wear long pants and long sleeves...

Una experiencia inolvidable. Lo completé en octubre 16, 2016. Cuando llegué al tope no pude observar bien la vista porque había neblina. Sin duda alguna, volveré en verano para poder apreciar la vista. Tardé dos horas y veinte minutos en subir. Para bajar fue mas sencillo.

After coming down from Mt. Britton, I diverted along this short loop to enjoy some additional scenery. Recommended for those who are not able to hike the longer trails but still want to experience what they offer.

There was a ranger who prohibited my passage to the trail head. I don't know what that was about, but I was not going to let myself be deterred so I hiked up the trail to El Yunque and crossed over on the Mt. Britton spur to get to the tower and summit. As I gained elevation I noticed that I came out of the forest and was more into the jungle near the summit. It was a very nice hike, both for viewing of surroundings and also for the scenic views from the summit.

I came down the Big Tree trail to the falls, and came up this trail. This is a very different hike, as the previous trail was on a hillside and among trees, while this trail stayed close to water, and the ever present flow of the stream over rocks and into pools. It was a great counterpoint to the other trail, and I recommend combining the two to get the full experience.

I made a loop of this trail and La Mina to get the full experience. It was a pleasant stroll through the well maintained trail, and I stopped several times to look over interesting trees and plants. Because it's in a forest, there are not many scenic views of the area, but that isn't noticed because there are so many trees and types of terrain that capture the interest. This is a hike that causes one to take special interest in the immediate surroundings. With the richness of plants being a special treat, I didn't see much wildlife. The trail culminates in the very popular falls. From there I went up the La Mina trail.

Hiked it yesterday, Saturday, October 15, 2016. The hike is both beautiful and hard. I recommend long pants and long sleeves. That will ease the painful weed scrapes. may take an average hiker anywhere from 6 to 7.5 hours to hike both trails as weather and trail conditions will determine your speed and progress. Large portions of the trail are very muddy, calf to knee deep mud in some sections of the trail. Hiking sticks are a must. Plenty of nature to observe, photograph and document. Incredible landscape views of both northeast and southeast PR all the way to the Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea seen from 3,524 feet. Various species of birds, butterflies and lizards are abundant. Portions of the trail are not easily recognized, use tape if you look for the trail in those areas. Great hike!

The hike is not difficult at all. If you're looking for a relaxing walk and cooling swim, this trail is perfect. There are many places to explore at the end of the trail, and there is a deep pool to swim in.
