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

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.

My favorite hike in el Yunque forest. Have done it so many times that lost count. It is beautiful hike and the views on the Rock (to the right couple of minutes prior reaching the top) are amazing. Then can go down the road to reach Mt Britton and continue that trial which connects to Yunque trail or continue the road until another trial to have different view and then just take the road back to the parking lot. Not sure if it has open after the hurricane so check before going.

Beautiful forest, fairytale hike. Few great views on the way. Not very difficult. Come early so you won't have problems with parking spot.

Beautiful view of turquoise waters! The trail starts at the level of the beach where I snorkeled but didn’t see much, only seagrass. The hike got higher and higher to where the waves crash on the cliffs. It’s a very hot hike and I probably would have passed out from the brutal sun if it wasn’t for the cool gusts of ocean wind the entire time. Not much as far as shade so be prepared with a hat, sunscreen, and lots of water. Pretty cool cacti and birds on the trail.

Much less crowded than other hikes in the area, likely due to it being somewhat more challenging. Beautiful view overlooking the entire rainforest.

Was expecting to see more flora and animals through the forest, but still very enjoyable hike. We arrived early (~8-9) to avoid tourist traffic!

Super easy hike, but very long way. Be sure to bring a lot of sunblock and a LOT of water!

When hiking El Yunque there you can see Los Picachos, El Yunque Peak, Roca El Yunque Rock, and Mt. Button Tower in a 5.5 mile hike. Park at Palo Colorado where there is a small information/gift shop and bathrooms. Walk up to Baño Grande and see that. You'll see the El Yunque trail to the right and take it all the way up ~2 miles to the Los Picachos trail which is the first trail to your right. It's only .7 miles to Los Picachos and well worth seeing the view. Then go back and take your next right to Roca El Yunque and El Yunque Peak...It is very windy so watch your hat! After El Yunque hike the service road down to Mt. Button which will be your second left, then backtrack to the spur trail to go back down to Palp Colorado.

Excellent slightly uphill trek from Rd 333 up to DRNA Station where you can take Lluberas trail or any of the trails within the Dry Forest
Don't miss the centenary Guayacan tree about 200 mts off

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 actually got a little winded on this one. Loved it though!!!! The tower is so picturesque. If you are ever visiting PR this trail is a must.

I would definitely recommend coming to the park as early as you can in order to ensure parking. We connected with the El Yunque trail via the Mt. Briton spur (after having completed the Mt. Briton trail). The trail afforded us spectacular views of the island. We connected with Las Picachos and walked out to the tower lookout before backtracking and walking up to the El Yunque lookout. The hike itself was relatively easy, but I could see how inclement weather would make the trail difficult to pass. We were apparently lucky and did not experience any rain or cloud cover! Be sure to check the weather before you go, as cloud cover could obscure your view. We had a relatively easy time on this trail, but did have to scramble in a few places. I would recommend shooting down the Roca El Yunque after finishing this trail- the views are fantastic.

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.

There was a ranger who prohibited my passage to the trail head. I don't know what that was about, but I was not going to let myself be deterred so I hiked up the trail to El Yunque and crossed over on the Mt. Britton spur to get to the tower and summit. As I gained elevation I noticed that I came out of the forest and was more into the jungle near the summit. It was a very nice hike, both for viewing of surroundings and also for the scenic views from the summit.
