The trail head is a bit hard to see, it is to the right of the information booth, to the left of a driveway that says " private property" and before the gate to the state forest. It is a nice short hike with uneven ground (rocks and tree roots) and some slippery areas. It is a bit steep in places but overall not difficult if you are in shape. The view at the top is spectacular, it is a 360 degree view of the whole island. It took us less than 2h total including a snack break at the top.

They must have a good physical condition to perform this climb. Many obstacles and scalped terrain. It takes around a full day to complete it. Because Hurricane Maria left him very affected.

Look for the trail sign (tour sign) on the left hand side of the road placed by an iron gate. For parking, theres many houses around and the neighbors told me that hikers need park on the shoulder before the sign, do not park beyond/after it. This trail looks like it goes through someones yard but youll see the path as you walk past the house. I cleared out the spider webs for everyone with my face. Youre welcome. There was a light rain when I went which made this trail very difficult. The sun came out halfway through my hike and dried up the extremely slippery rocks. I recommend water shoes or the finger toe shoes because theres slick spots due to moss and mud even if dry. Once down the very steep mud descent, you can go left and right. Go both ways its a short distance each. I gave 4 stars because it was a bit short. Steep but not too terrible. Very enoyable.

Great family hike through the rainforest. There are down trees but easy to go around or this would be a 5 star trail. One of the best vistas of the entire island for only .5 miles of uphill effort! Hardest part is just driving the one lane road to get here. Temps are lower in the mountains so perfect for hiking. Entrance is located in front of a house with some guard dogs. There are picnic stops for breaks along the way. Can be muddy if it rains but mainly a rock trail.

Did this ecotourism hike without a guide. I only recommend this option if you are a serious hiker. The main trail itself is just a rock river trail with some side sections in the woods so be prepared to be wet and have slippery footing.

You park at: finca los llanos para la naturaleza. You can take a tour with this nature conservancy if you like also. You then follow the fence line of the house next door across a field till you hit a trail that leads you down to the bottom of the canyon in 15 minutes. From there you go upstream to see la niebla falls and can swim around. There is a ton of old car parts engrained in the rocks due to this canyon being an old dump yard the nature conservation group has been cleaning up. Then you go downstream to see two other waterfalls. The first waterfall you get too needs to be taken on the left hand side to go down. You can jump around and swim in this hole for a while. Then once you walk down to the last waterfall DO NOT GO DOWN unless you have repelling gear. It is a 40ft drop so be careful of the edge.
