This is a heck of a hike as it is mostly up hill. Beautiful scenery in the rainforest to get to this tower make it a good hike. We could not see much as there were clouds all around us but that was kind of cool as well.

We had bad luck with the view - the people leaving as we arrived told us it was great but unfortunately the clouds had just blown over. We waited for 15 minutes or so, but no luck. However, the hike up through the forest was still pretty and we enjoyed it. The tower has an interesting look with orange moss growing all over it. The hike up from the road is not bad - somewhat steep in spots but paved the entire way and beautiful. When you hit the gravel road, follow it up a little further to the fork, and go right another quarter mile or so to reach the tower.

Sitting in the car just after the walk back down. Hike up isn't crazy but not easy either. I couldn't imagine a better viewing point though. One of those you really just can't capture on film and instead let it sink into your minds eye for later recall. Go!

It's one of the most cozy trails. Once you park your car, start going up. The trail is pretty easy. They have a path with cement which makes it easier to climb. Once you finish with the path, you'll get to an open area with a fork. If you go to the right, you'll go to Torre Britton.
Once you get there, go all the way up. The view is amazing. If by any chance you get to the top and it's cloudy, you may not be able to see anything because you will be in the clouds (literally) just wait a couple of minutes, the wind blows pretty hard and the clouds will move. once the move, you'll see a whole new world!!

We hiked along a concrete trail through the rainforest. The vegetation is beautiful along with some great views! However, sometimes the area is foggy so the views are not as good, but area is still great to visit. You may see some unique flowers, like wild orchids. We also saw a bioluminescent slug at the top of the tower! This is a must-see in Puerto Rico!
