Towering over the only tropical rainforest in all of the United States, El Yunque Peak rises to 1.080 meters above sea level and makes for quite a hiking adventure.
There are numerous ways to the top of the mountain and among the most popular is the El Yunque Trail. Starting at kilometer 12 of Route 191, we begin the three to four hour hike by crossing a road and heading up a set of concrete steps before entering the forest.
Once we do, there’s a quick hike along a relatively flat trail before we turn onto the proper Yunque Trail and begin a sharp ascent.
As we climb in elevation, we will hike through various zones of forest, getting to enjoy the sights of numerous species of plants and birds. You may even hear the sounds of the famous Puerto Rican coqui frog as you go.
As we gain altitude, we will come across the first vista. This may look like the summit, but it is not. Still, it offers some excellent views out over the rainforest and surroundings.
After a little while longer, we will reach the summit. From here, you can see all the way out to the Atlantic Ocean as well as over the entirety of the eastern portion of the island. Savor the views before heading back down either by the way we came or another trail.
So what are you waiting for? Book now for this incredible half-day hike up to the summit of Yunque Peak via the Yunque Trail!
