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.

Excelente sendero. Lo mejor es el final. Nos tardamos 38 minutos en bajar y 30 en virar. La cascada la mina es espectacular. Se siente mucha paz.

So worth it. This hike can be hard if you're not use to change in elevation, tons of humidity, climbing, heat, etc. But it's short and if you take it easy I'm pretty confident most can accomplish and enjoy the beautiful waterfall! It gets busy. Swimming in the waterfall is awesome!

Tough trail. I would rate this as a difficult trail rather than moderate. Wear good waterproof hiking boots! You will cross wide streams and walk through lots of deep squishy mud and slippery rocks/roots. Trail is well marked and end of trail is rewarding with river pools to swim in. Bring swimwear and lots of water to stay hydrated! Trail head says it's 1.8mi/1.5hr. Took us about 3.5hr to hike out and back.

I did this hike May 13th. I live in Florida so these are the closest mountains for me to get to easily. We went on a long weekend and I love hiking so any chance to get some elevation for hiking (Florida is flat) and I'm game. It's not Hawai'i or Colorado, but La Mina Falls hike was very cool.
I was disappointed with the lack of information about Hiking in PR. The drive up was fine. The road was well maintained, but there were a few narrow spots so beware or go on on if the many guided tours.
The friend I traveled with had never hiked so we tried to take well worn trails.
The hike to La Mina Falls was mostly paved with a 2ft wide path. It was fairly easy in hiking shoes and well maintained.
When we got to the falls my friend went swimming, as were a lot of locals. It seems to be a popular swimming spot. Note to self, wear a swim suit under my hiking shorts next time lol. The water was cold and the rocks surrounding the Falls were not too slippery.
After swimming/wadding, we noticed several people easily hiking off trail below us, actually they were barefoot so we decided to check out the other smaller falls downhill.
I love going off the beaten path, so this was fun and not too difficult to boulder. It took us away from the 30 or so people who were swimming in La Mina by noon.
Overall, for hiking this was fun and relatively close. Plus, you don't need a passport for Puerto Rico!
I would definitely include hiking if I was going to PR.
We wish we had time to climb MT Britton, but by noon it was raining at higher altitude and I decided not to go into uncharted territory in the rain with a novice hiker.
There is always next time!

It was lovely. On a hot day you can jump in and cool down. Also a great location to take pictures under the waterfall.

Did this hike back on Feb 2016 trail was a little bit wet and slippery. It would be considered easy doable in regular shoes and clothes. There were a few waterfalls which were beautiful but a bit crowded. You can also swim under the La mina waterfall.
