  • Trails: Big Tree Trail and La Mina Trail to the popular La Mina Falls, remain closed at this time. Angelito trail (Rd 988) is now open after completing repairs to the trail and bridge.  The nearby Puente Roto recreation site provides acccess to the Rio Mameyes.  Trails open include: Angelito Trail; Mt. Britton Trail; access to El Yunque Peak along a segment of the El Yunque Peak trail and La Coca Trail.        

As road work, debris removal, and power grid repairs continue within and on the way to El Yunque National Forest, visitors can expect traffic delays and temporary closures to facilitate ongoing recovery work. While efforts have been taken to provide for safe travel and recreation use of areas, be mindful that recovery efforts both within and outside the Forest will continue.
