Ascent Trip Report

Approach from north (PR-3) on narrow but good paved roads. Inside the park we passed through the road check point (limited capacity due to Covid) by showing the ranger our permit (purchased for $2 online). We parked at the farthest trailhead for Mt Britton trail. The first part was a trail which led to a paved road taken all the way to the stone structure on El Yunque. This is the only NF rain forest. It rained. A lot. But it was warm. Did not do the three side peakbags.
