About this Trail

The trail follows the rugged coast of the Guanica Forest, the sandy coves and rocky headlands along the Caribbean shore. Here is a chance to explore the vegetation of a coastal dry forest the Organ-pipe and Prickly-pear cactus scrub. The limestone cliffs are carpeted with dwarf white mangroves, button-wood, and Cedar, pruned by the constant wind and salt spray, a virtual "bonsai" forest.

Directions to Trailhead

From exit 194 on PR#2 take PR#116 South to PR#333 (Burger King at intersection, last restroom before trailhead) and follow this to the end and trailhead parking. Note: the visitors center (maps are available here) is on PR#334

Notes on Difficulty Rating
