“A jungle ambiance trail that will teach you how severe climbs are all meant for their rewards.

One of Ponce's newest trails (as of 2015). The soil is a super grippy top soil that is a beauty to shred. It progressively enters a forest floor mostly covered by dense Yagrumo and other leafs. Expect just a few roots, but no spiny or thorny plants (unlike the other trails in Ponce). This trail has a downhill section, as well as a long, demanding climb (which can be clearly seen in the graph below). While you are here, enjoy the fresh air from the lush forest around.
Need to Know
The section of the Inabn river where the trail starts is perfect to take a dip. Being fairly visited, mostly on the weekends, you'll most likely find ridiculous amounts of trash as some visitors don't yet understand the importance of the conservation of our resources (DISAPPOINTING!!!). Anyhow, bring a towel and have a good time! Always contribute by taking your trash, and if possible, that of others. For food and drinks, mofongos and Salsa, you'll definitely want to visit Casita de Campo just a few meters down the road (open Thursday/Friday nights and Saturday/Sundays).
Hitting this trail is a must! Having the Inabn river as its starting point, you are predisposed to give it your best, knowing that a pristine dip at the river awaits. The trail has various options, as you can take the steep "downhill" section (clearly labeled) for a shorter track, or continue through the "longer" route, in which an arduous climb awaits. The climb is serious, but the reward will be well-deserved, as a long, speedy descent will put massive grins on your face! Make sure your helmet has a visor because hanging roots tend to make an appearance.
