    Status: PARTIALLY OPEN *Information center, picnic shelters, Bano de Oro trail, La Mina trail and portions of Caimitillo Trail still closed*


    The Palo Colorado Recreation area site includes an information center, an Eastern National gift store, picnic shelters, and is the trailhead for Caimitillo, La Mina, El Yunque and Baño de Oro trails. The information center and gift shop are currently closed.


    The Palo Colorado Interpretive Site is the most visited area of the entire Forest. Because of this, we recommend that you visit this site on a weekday or during the spring or fall months when there are fewer visitors.


    The picnic area where the open picnic shelters are located, is currently closed. Each site has running water, barbeques and trashcans. Since charcoal is not available for purchase at these sites, you must bring it along with you if you wish to use the barbeque facilities.
