Along the trail, you will be serenaded by the pleasant buzzing whistle of our tiny black and yellow native warbler with the silly-sounding name; Bananaquit. After crossing one of the many clear mountain streams, you may encounter a lovely Puerto Rican Emerald Hummingbird (Zumbadorcito in Spanish) sipping nectar from a bright red Hibiscus flower, or even be inspected by a family of Mongoose hurriedly crossing your path. he trail ends at Cascada La Mina (La Mina Falls), an exquisite waterfall that drops over 35 feet through a jumble of huge rocks into a lovely pool where hikers can choose to swim in the cool refreshing water or merely rest and enjoy the view.

For a over weight old man, it was OK, but not for the faint of heart. There was some vertical changes, but nothing that time couldn't Handel. The treat at the bottom was well worth the effort. It really is a must do!!

Nice hike. Amazing forest scenery. Cool off in La Mina Falls. Can get crowded so get there fairly early.
