San Juan, Puerto Rico
From La Perla to Old San Juan
The El Paseo del Morro National Recreational Trail uses a natural seafront and a two-mile trail to connect communities in San Juan with the city’s historical, cultural, and natural treasures. The trail links the neighborhoods of La Perla and Old San Juan with the sites of the city. The National Park Service Rivers, Trails, and Conservation Assistance program brought diverse, but interested parties together to build trust and a shared vision for the trail. RTCA also assessed areas for rest stops, camp sites, and informative signs along the trail. The Friends of the Forts of Old San Juan and RTCA envision a seamless, world class, multi-use trail.
