2:32 hours later to the top and back! Walk-Run. Lovely, muddy 5 mile hike. Great view at the top.

Did the trail in Sept 2017. It is steep in few areas and felt tough with my son in the backpack carrier. But the views at the end were definitely worth it.

I don't see the beauty of this trail. It's crazy muddy, yes there are some nice views but overall no recommendation from my side. Thanks for the buddy who explains everything in detail, very helpful! Bring water, long pants and a light jacket. Not many bugs, a few butterflies and a cat-ish animal that crossed my path. And lots of spider nets, use a stick to get rid of them before you walk into them

Quick hike up to the Tower (~1 mile) and we got a nice breeze at the top. Unfortunately the visibility was very limited so can’t report on what I have to assume are sweeping views of the park down to the beach.

Wow... what an adventure. This trail has everything: a rope climb, bridge crossing, ladder climbing and rock scrambling. What more could you ask for in El Yunque!? One of the other reviewers covered this trail pretty well and it was great for setting expectations. I’m not going to rehash what has already been said but I do want to point out some very important things. Firstly, do not, I repeat, do not hike this trail in the rain or after heavy rain. There are sections of this trail that take you literally to the edge of the hillside... in mud... on a trail that is a foot wide. This is not hyperbole. If you slip in one of these sections you will most likely die. Secondly, when you climb the ladder just before you reach the pool it can be confusing where to go. This is the rock scrambling part. Keep to the left and follow the blue marked trees as stated in another review. However, after you get through the last rope climb (really more like cord than rope) a little further up the trail splits. It is easy to miss the break to the right and you may be tempted to keep climbing. If you’re looking for the infinity pool take the right trail and you’re about 50 feet away. If you keep climbing up you will end at section with deeper water that is more suitable for swimming but that area is not the “infinity” pool. Thirdly, appropriate footwear is recommended most of the trail is covered in mud in some cases ankle high mud. I wore Altra trail runners and was fine but I wouldn’t recommend flip flops or sandals. Lastly, enjoy yourself this is a phenomenal hike and one of the best in El Yunque (even if it is technically off limits to public).

Definitely go during low tide! Our walk along the beach was in and out of the water enough that I ended up abandoning my shoes entirely. The parts through the trees were a little overgrown...we lost the trail a couple times and had to backtrack a tiny bit to find it again. Beautiful views, though!

What a great trail. I could not go till the end as shown on the map, as it was very rocky and since I was alone didn’t want to risk it. It walked to the end and came back mid-way, put on a meditation story from Spotify and in ear I could hear the story and the other ear the gentle waves breaking on the shore. It was heavenly.

This trail is relatively easy. We're a bit out of shape and we made it, though we had to stop for breaks a few times at the really steep parts. The trail is paved with cement and stones but the stones can get quite slippery so watch your step! It's also very narrow so you have to step off the trail to let people pass if there's foot traffic both ways. The view from the top is pretty cloudy, so try to go on a clear day is possible. There are still pretty views from the top with clouds but I imagine it would be much better without them. Parking is limited so get there early or you're going to have to walk pretty far too and from the trail!

Caminata agradable muy fácil y bien señalizada. La hice con mi hija de dos años y 10 amigas todas las edades. 30 minutos de caminata para llegar

this a great trail in the Yunque. Pretty well developed and not too long. Quite a bit of foot traffic and steep with many tourists. There is an alternative way down, or up, by simy following the paved service road. The service road is quite a bit further though.

Paved with occasional steps. Great payoff with view. Not fare, many first time sightseers in their 60s

Great nature trail with nice view at the top! Wear good sneakers, water and something to carry your seashell treasures. At the end take a dip in the ocean!

Beautiful ending but definitely not for the faint of heart! Colora was not swimmable but Escondido was beautiful and perfect!! Recommend if you want private-ish beach experience without going to Vieques or Ceiba - bring water shoes or boots for the trek in.

A real pretty site with natural water slides and rapids. Parking for us was $10 and there's a trail that will follow along the stream. I recommend wearing water shoes and walk upstream. The water slides and rope swings were full of guided tours and by the time we made it there, there had to be 50 plus people in life vests and helmets on tours. So if that's your thing........

Great trail - lots of awkward rocks and pebbles so bring good shoes or use a stick to keep balance. Fun place to skip rocks, explore and enjoy the sun.

It was epic: however, it presents a true adventure in the obstacles present.

It was a nice hike. Beautiful while going along the beach. Make sure to check the tide before heading there if you want to swim in it. We didn’t and it wasn’t safe to go down to the trench but it is a nice view anyway. We went on a week day and we were the only people there so that was nice.

This hike was amazing. First note, the road to get to the exact point where the map shows the hike starts is closed. You have to park by the PR-191 Naguabo gate of El Yunque and walk about 15-20 minutes to get the trail starting point. The first part of the trail is very easy but it will not take too long to notice why it is rated hard. It rains a lot in this area so it has many muddy areas. Sometimes the trail disappears and you have to walk around to find where it continues. There is a part where you need to climb up a muddy wall but there is a rope to assist that climb. Before finding this location you go a bit off trail as you are walking over the slippery rocks of a small waterfall/creek. Just keep going down and you will se the trail again. Other than that, the first part of the trail was easier than the second half (I used the bigger dam as my mid point reference). It took us about 35 minutes to get there. Another note here, the trail continues about 4 meters after the dam machine room. Do not keep walking all the way to the end. Just look to the right and go down a small wall. From here on it gets more dangerous. You are literally walking on the ledge of a mountain on a trail that is barely a foot wide. Some parts are even washed out so you need get creative to continue the trail. Here is where a walking stick comes very handy (also to remove spider nets along the way). Something cool is that you get to walk over the old mines rails. Watch your step on those since there are some narrow holes that are hard to see sometimes. Finally, you arrive to this other old looking dam thing. You will see the metal ladder, go up and you are almost there. The last climb is also a bit hard. You are going over slippery waterfall rocks again. Go on the left side (smaller dry waterfall section) and you will see trees with blue ribbons on them. Try to follow those and you will see parts with ropes to assist you on the last part of the hike. It took us another 35 minutes to get there from the bigger dam(mid point). The trail is hard but once there you will see it is worth it. It is best if you go early on a sunny day to appreciate the view. Avoid going on rainy days or after any rain. It takes about an hour and a half back to the car so make sure you are on your way back in the car before sunset. It gets really dark and this is not the trail you want to be walking in full darkness. To make the hike easier, bring hiking shoes, long pants and probably even long sleeves shirt to protect you from all the plants with thorns. Some are known to cause allergic reactions similar to poison ivy to some people so be careful. I would also bring a machete since there are some trees and branches that need to be cleared out. Final comment, it is more like an infinity jacuzzi or tub so do not expect a pool! We walked by it and keep going up looking for the “pool” and had to turn back.
