Take a drive to El Yunque Rainforest and drive all the way up to Mt. Britton. There is on road parking where you will then start your 40 minute hike up. A beautiful easy hike surrounded by the trees, coquis and fellow explorers. Once you get up to the tower you will be able to see El Yunque all the... More

This trail went up through the rain forest and out onto the hillside. It was a moderate climb and the trails are a bit rough and steep in places. The view from the top was absolutely gorgeous: Fajardo, the mountains, and the beautiful Flamboyan trees in bloom. If you have a few hours, this is a worthwhile visit.

Let me start by saying that me and my wife are not the best hikers or in tip top shape. However, we decided to hike to the tower because of what we heard about the views. The trail to it is a combo of stairs and flat pat (all paved, one mile total). Then you walk up a road to... More

The hike to this tower is steep with a constant incline. It could be challenging for some. Once you are at the top, you will be treated with an amazing 360 degree view. It's definitely one of the highlights in El Yunque National Forest.

Amazing view. It takes 40 minutes to go to the top of the tower. The trail is very good. You'll physical condition to get up to the top. The view is worth!!

The views from here are vast and beautiful --when it is clear. Just as quickly, you may end up in the midst of a cloud as this is in a cloud forest -that, too, was an enjoyable part of the experience.

The cellular towers at the summit ruined the hike. What's the point of hiking in nature when you have a 90 foot cellular tower right next you? Overall, the views at the top are to die for (literally, if you fall over the ledge)

We hiked this trail in probably about 20 minutes despite the 45 minute rating. It was pretty steep in places but not that challenging. The trail is very well maintained but slippery in spots from the frequent rain. We went early in the morning and we were the people there. The views are incredible! It only took us 12 minutes...
