Trail is still closed but totally doable! Just pass the barrier and prepare to bushwhack a little and have fun! At no point were we unclear about the direction of the path. We managed to do this in the rain.

Just be sure to wear long pants!! There are long grasses along the way that will tear up your legs. They stick to you and have these sharp edges that draw blood. And find a stick to knock down all the spider webs. By the time you’re heading back down, there will already be more! Fun hike and recommended for the adventurous!

There is one lookout near the top where you can feel the strong winds rushing over the peak. This is honestly far cooler than the little lookout tower on top. Hold your arms out and feel like you’re flying! Just don’t slip!

Never seen a forest of palms before! Super cool and worth the effort.

Open! I suggest going up the mountain through the paved road and then leaving through the actual trail! I am a 31 female in okay physical condition and went alone. I went at around 10am. Engineers were giving maintenance to the antennas so you’re never truly alone. If you decide to go to the mt. Britton hike then you should push yourself and finish this hike!

Slippery but fun!

My wife and I did this trail twice on our honeymoon. So much fun both times. the. Second time we went early morning to avoid the crowds.

Extremely mudy but beautiful rainforest trail.

This trail is OPEN and beautiful! It wasn’t super crowded we got there around 10 am took us about 1.5-2 hours but we are slow and have a 10yr old dog that needed some water breaks then pee breaks. It does get slippery in some spots so wear good shoes and watch where you step! Have fun!

Easy walk with beautiful swimming hole at the end. Trail is still officially closed due to bridge repair. Currently, you could be ticketed for entering the area while improvements are being made.

beautiful! go early because it gets busy.

Awesome trail! Wait until the end for succession of natural pools. Can be VERY muddy... bring dry and clean clothes.

Closed on Dec 8 2018 along with all other trails starting / in the vicinity the Rec area here.

Pretty to see for the difference in colors but it’s not a pleasant hike ... trashy

Go early enjoy the history and beautiful paved roads ... pet cats along the way ... lots of history

Great views

Only trail open in the forest. Hike down to flowing stream and then further to waterfall with pool at bottom for cooling off. Can be very muddy. Low traffic too.

Only trail open in El Yunque for our visit (Nov 2018). Very muddy and slippery, but rewarding watering hole at the end. Be prepared to get messy/wet and bring water! Beautiful rainforest, but very difficult trail. Took us about 3.5-4 hours round trip.

Limited parking at the trailhead and we did see a ranger ticketing cars parked alongside the road.

Nice hike!

Great view from El Morro.

Nice bird watching walking trail. A little hot and humid.

The Trees and tropical vegatation is unbelivably HUGE. It is amazing and very different. Trail is easily marked with beautiful waterfalls.

Was really nice a lot of shade. Always had to be careful with bikers

I love history and love the ocean. Such a great combination of the two.

This is what PR vacations are about.

This trail is still closed from hurricane Maria but the rainforest is gorgeous and still worth the visit. They do allow you far enough up (driving) to see Coca Falls and they also allow you to go to the first viewing tower just a little past the Coca Falls. There isn't a lot of parking but stay patient and you will get a spot. There is a 30 minute time limit on parking. Only trail we found that was open was Angelito. Short but it leads you to a nice stream.

This is not a hike but an easy walk except for the 5 ft of rock scramble due to closed bridge section. We get there early to avoid cruise ship traffic and local family picnics but our dog swims and the rope swing is great if you go as high as possible before swinging to give you a huge arc and avoid the rocks. You can sit in natural rapids for a jacuzzi and water is perfect temp as long as you just jump in.

This trail is inaccessible as of today 6/24/2018 due to road construction.
