We did Mt Britton Trail > Mt Britton Tower > Mt Britton Spur > El Yunque Trail > Picachos > Yunque Peak > La Roca and then back to Mt Britton trail via the forest service road. What a hike! Great views, it did get cloudy and rainy for a bit but that’s to be expected and there was something mystical about walking through the clouds. Highly recommend this hike!

Incline all the way up awesome view at the top of the tower

Great trail! The rocks can be a bit slick near the bottom, but no real risk of slipping otherwise.

Tried hiking this trail today. Still closed as of 9/3/19 A lot of trails are still closed and awaiting repairs from hurricane Maria.

Great hike from point A to point B. Recommend a hiking stick for slippery and challenging areas. Extremely majestic and perfect to appreciate the only rainforest in the United States. No wild animals, no poisonous snakes, this is all just relaxing and worry free. Just watch your step! Great views, mud, rivers, old mining rails and history. Water feels amazing after the long haul. If you are lucky for rain coming back it is the icing on the cake. Nature’s Cycle at its best.

OMG, this one is very challenging but the view, the river and the waterfall worth all the effort. You must be very careful since you have to cross a bridge, climb a stairs, cross a dam, climb a hill and more. Some areas are very windy. I don’t recommend this trail for dogs and for kids.

Everything in El Yunque is great. Love it. Still in restoration due to the devastation caused by hurricane Maria but is open to the public and in good shape. Dog friendly and kids friendly too. This trail is easy.

Its an enjoyable hike. The trail is straightforward. First half all ascending and the other half same way back down just descending Never gets to steep . For me the most challenging part was was the first 1/4 of the trail. Nice panoramic views once at Yunque Peak and at least for me even nicer at Yunque rock. Also a few other other nice views maybe halfway to the top. In all 2 hours hike to Yunque Peak and a little less back down . Started out at 1015am and was back down at 2pm.

Great!
