You need to pay to park which can be three to four dollars depending on which private lot you use. There are two different ways to get there but the easiest to find is there is a short trail on the left aide of the river at the parking lot that upon exiting look directly across the river to the path on the right side you take this until it crosses the river one more time. You hit charco frío first with a rope swing and some small jumps off the rocks. Go up the backside on the right of the rope swing to continue the trail to las tinajas which is amazing natural water slides. There are two sets of water slide areas. One is higher up and has two slides next to each other that drop you into a small pool. The left one is bumpier but both are fine as long as you don’t stay at the bottom. The second set is right below the first and dumps into a large pool for swimming. DO NOT GO DOWN THE RIGHT SIDE! The left side has a a great really long slide that shoots you into the pool. The right is not a safe slide. If you feel super adventurous you can jump off a high rock dive into that pool also. You can see from the recoding we spent a lot of time in the pool areas. These are well trafficked paths with tourist groups and locals who put on some amazing cliff diving shows. You will need to do some rock bouldering and be in relative good shape to complete this hike. Balance is key as a lot of it is near slippery river rocks. The only reason it doesn’t get five stars is due to this not being a naturalist trail and I hate paying for any part of hiking but I know some people in our group thought it was the best trail on island. No matter what it is a do not miss experience in Puerto Rico!

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

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.
