  • Trails: Big Tree Trail and La Mina Trail to the popular La Mina Falls, remain closed at this time. Effective October 24, 2018 a portion of Angelito trail is now closed temporarily until further notice for repairs.  The nearby Puente Roto recreation site provides acccess to the Rio Mameyes.    Trails open include: Mt. Britton Trail; access to El Yunque Peak along a segment of the El Yunque Peak trail or Rd 10 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.
