El Toro Trail is located on the Western side of the forest near a rural community. It is a remote nature trail that offers a unique experience to hikers. The trail was constructed by the Civil Conservation Corps in the 1940's and is still very much in the same condition as when it was originally constructed. When hikers reach El Torro peak, views are spectacular. A panoramic view of the forest and the Atlantic shoreline is impressive. The flora and fauna found along the trail are unique to the upper elevations of the rain forest. Due to the rain, lush vegetation, and steep slopes, the trail can be very challenging for a first time hiker.
