Much less crowded than other hikes in the area, likely due to it being somewhat more challenging. Beautiful view overlooking the entire rainforest.

Moderate hike in with beautiful rainforest views. La Mina Falls was beautiful but very crowded.

Was expecting to see more flora and animals through the forest, but still very enjoyable hike. We arrived early (~8-9) to avoid tourist traffic!

When hiking El Yunque there you can see Los Picachos, El Yunque Peak, Roca El Yunque Rock, and Mt. Button Tower in a 5.5 mile hike. Park at Palo Colorado where there is a small information/gift shop and bathrooms. Walk up to Baño Grande and see that. You'll see the El Yunque trail to the right and take it all the way up ~2 miles to the Los Picachos trail which is the first trail to your right. It's only .7 miles to Los Picachos and well worth seeing the view. Then go back and take your next right to Roca El Yunque and El Yunque Peak...It is very windy so watch your hat! After El Yunque hike the service road down to Mt. Button which will be your second left, then backtrack to the spur trail to go back down to Palp Colorado.

Tough trail, but is the best option if you are trying to get away from other tourists. Very muddy so be ready for that.Hiked back up the river instead of up the muddy mountain. Took about 3.5 hours with stops to swim and take photos. Pretty awesome place.

One thing to note is that the trail that is marked on the alltrails map is not the correct trail. The actual trail is headed down the mountain not up. It is 1.8 miles out and back and is very muddy and slippery. This trail needs corrected, as it is not at all accurate.
