Description:

Puerto Rico’s scenic state route 143 leads to the Bosque Estatal de Toro Negro, a sprawling, 7,000 acre nature reserve located in the town of Orocovis and adjacent municipalities of Jayuya, Ponce, Juana Díaz, and Ciales.

The extensive area of the reserve surrounds the grandest peaks on the Cordillera Central mountain range, including Cerro Punta, the island’s highest point at 4,390 feet above sea level. These altitudes provide visitors with jaw-dropping views of both the island’s coasts and surrounding woodlands.

Hiking trails abound throughout the landscape, leading wanderers through lush vegetation, canopied forests and trickling streams. Several of these trails contain gazebos perfect for picnics. One in particular leads to a stone tower offering exquisite views of the nearby El Guineo and Guayabal lakes as well as the Caribbean Sea.
