We connected with this trail via the El Yunque trail. It was fast and easy to traverse, though inclement weather could easily affect the condition of the trail. The views were pretty awesome, though you have to hop onto the wall to see over the rather dense foliage (be careful!). Continuing up El Yunque offers more spectacular views of the island.
We got to the park early and were able to snag a spot in the Mt. Briton parking area. Come early because spots are limited and they fill up quickly! The trail was relatively easy to traverse, irrespective of weather conditions, as the walkway is paved. There is an elevation climb, which is why I would rate this trail as 'moderate'. All in all, it was an easy and enjoyable walk up to the tower. The tower offers a great view of the island in all directions. We hopped onto the Mt. Briton spur and connected with the El Yunque trail that took us upwards and onwards for more spectacular views of this beautiful island. All in all, we spent about four and a half hours exploring the trails and managed a quick dip in the river to refresh ourselves afterwards. It was a morning well spent.
