This is another tower at El Yunque to take photos of the forest and in our case video of the fog's movement. That day the fog moved wicked over the mountain. This tower is near the top so hiking here requires effort.

Great return for minimal time and energy expended and away from the crowds of all the waterfall hikes. Highly recommended! Beautiful view up top.

Challenging but paved and scenic. My preferred hike on a clear day. Amazing forest and colorful bromeliads throughout. Great tower views and mountain topography!

Torre Britton is an easy hike on mostly paved paths. The view from the tower is spectacular! Take a water bottle and wear appropriate shoes to make this a more enjoyable outing. There are no bathrooms beyond the Palo Colorado Information Center at Km 11.7.

The hike up to Torre de Mt Britton affords stunning views of the sea, much of northeastern P.R. and El Yunque.

We climbed the whole trail which took probably two hours each way, but it was a nice activity to do with friends and the view from the top was unbeatable. :)
