A short 2.2km loop trail of moderate difficulty through riparian habitat and two waterfalls. Sections of the trail are slippery and steep and require surefooted hikers. An old growth fig tree near the confluence of the stream and the Rio Colorado is a great spot for birding and having lunch. Quetzals and Black Guan are common. Collared Peccaries have made game trails in this area. The open sections of the trail have spectacularviews of La Amistad and when you reach canopy level in the open areas this is a great place to sit quietly and look for monkeys and mixed species flocks of birds in the canopy.
