The Guilarte State Forest is located in the municipality of Adjuntas, and it's managed by the Puerto Rico Department of Natural Resources (DRNA). In this forest, you'll find Puerto Rico's seventh highest peak, Pico Guilarte, at an elevation of 3,950 feet above the sea level. Due to its richness in local flora and fauna, the Guilarte State Forest is a great spot for hiking, birdwatching, photography, or simply for enjoying Puerto Rico's great outdoors.
There are two main trails the San Andrés and Pico Guilarte trails, both with breathtaking views. The forest facilities include two lookout points, barbecue pits, bathrooms, gazebos, onsite parking, and a recreational area. Additionally, there are seven rustic cabins (max. 4 people), available for rent at a $20 per night rate. Cabin reservations have to be made in advance through the Department of Natural Resources.
