Hike Cañon San Cristobal

Rate this Adventure 4 miles 1000 ft gain  - Out-and-Back Trail

Added by Gillian Morris

A gorgeous, challenging hike to Puerto Rico's largest waterfall.

The hike from one end of Cañon San Cristobal to the other is arguably the most epic in Puerto Rico. Descend a thousand feet into a turquoise swimming hole, climb up a waterfall and find yourself in a valley so perfect it doesn't seem real. Climb up another waterfall, hike about a mile and you'll come to 'La Niebla': the largest waterfall on the island, 300 feet of water cascading down the side of the canyon. The hike is about 4 miles end to end but will take a good 4-5 hours thanks to the difficulty of parts of the climb.
