  • Enter from the WEST for a 3-hour medium-speed round trip with photo stops and time to enjoy the view at the top. Plenty of mud when we visited, but apparently better than before the storms. Shorts.....  more »
  • This is basically the sole longer hike available in El Yunque National Forest, the only tropical rain forest in the US, after Hurricane Maria in Sept. 2017. It is a great 2.5 mile out and back hike with some rather steep climbs to a location with a 360 degree view, El Toro. El Toro is the second highest point in Puerto Rico and the highest mountain in El Yunque. Throughout the hike vegetation changes from Tabonuco Forest to Sierra Palm Forest and finally Elfin or Cloud Forest. A variety of interesting and endemic plants are to see and the local micro orchid Lepanthes eltoroensis only grows here and can be seen on trees along the trail.
  • Una experiencia única, hermoso, bello, precioso. Se respira paz y armonía. De camino podes apreciar la naturaleza, sinnúmero de plantas diferentes, flores, altos árboles, insectos, orugas, mariposas. Un lugar mágico con una vista impresionante. El camino hacia la cima es un reto maravilloso. Se hace buen ejercicio mientras se disfruta de la naturaleza. El camino esta limpio y libre, quizás algunas gramas largas y uno que otro tronco pequeño, pero eso lo hace mas divertido. El fango, hasta los tobillos, se siente uno como explorador de película. Ha en la cima disfrutaran de una hermosa vista, aire fresco y mucha paz.
