Hiking and access trailEdit

Trail number 3, known as "Camino Torre Observacion", makes its way up to Cerro Doña Juana from Trail #1 (Camino El Bolo) which can be started at the Toro Negro State Forest visitors area. The visitors parking area is located on PR-143, km 34.4. PR-143 is a winding two-lane mountain road that must be travelled very slowly as it is not possible to see traffic coming the opposite direction for any significant length. Route 143 can be accessed via the better-traveled Route 10.[4] Route 143 is part of the Ruta Panorámica. There is an observation tower atop Cerro Doña Juana.
