We entered from the Calilegua side. The road was rough but drivable in dry weather. We checked in with the ranger who gave us a map and told us all the trails were open. We went to the tough El Negrito trailhead down to the river and ignored the closed sign as we are experienced in the mountains and jungles. We had a very tough enjoyable day. Tips:-
*Be independent their is no one around to help and no mobile signal
*Take enough water food and insect repellant
*Wear appropriate clothes and boots
*Do not attempt a tough trail if there is a chance of rain, or that you will not finish well before night fall
*Let someone know your plans and estimated return time
*Enjoy

We'd been looking forward to visiting this park as it is quite easily accessible and we'd read there is some good hiking. However, the reality was a bit of a disappointment. Of the 10 trails. only about 4 were open, and all were very short ones, no more than an hour. We'd really wanted to spend a couple of days doing the long trails (there are some 4-5 hour options). The park staff told us the trails were closed due to flooding a few weeks ago. Obviously the flooding is not their fault, but it would be good if they could get some of them open, or at least partially open, soon. It would also be good if the main road through the park could be better maintained. We heard the park gets better and better the further you go in, but we didn't fancy the long drive in our rental car!
On the plus side, the trails we did manage to do were well done we thought, and the ranger who spoke to us when we arrived was very informative and helpful. We particularly liked that they gave us a numbered list of tree species, and as we were walking there were numbers on some of the trees to help us identify them from the list. They also gave us a guide to identifying mammals, and recognising footprints. It would be even better if they provided something with info on some of the common birds there too.
Overall probably worth a visit when they get the big trails re-opened! Till then maybe give it a miss.
