One thing about the hikes in El Yunque are that they are very well maintained and cemented throughout. Also most hikes are classified as 'Challenging' but I believe they have a different system of ranking as compared to the National Park System. What they say 'Challenging' is in fact 'Moderately difficult' when compared to rating for National Park System.
The Mount Britton trail is classified as 'Challenging' but decided to take it anyways. Remember to pack a cap / poncho to prevent from rains and stay off the stones on the path when raining. The hike is mostly uphill and when the clouds hit the mountain you are walking through the clouds. The views from the top are awesome, constantly changing because of the changing cloud cover. Dont let a rainy day discourage you because the clouds clear up in an instant and the views are awesome when that happens. Totally worth the hike.
45 mins one way on average pace.
