This trail was once a reliable site for Eastern Striped Manakin Machaeropterus regulus but this species, on the very southern edge of its range at REGUA, is not currently being seen here. The trail is particularly good for White-bibbed Antbird and Slaty Bristlefront.
The trail is actually a 4×4 track that starts at the Small Wetland and leads steadily upwards through well established secondary forest to a derelict house (Casa Anibal) at an altitude of 352 m. The overgrown garden at the house is a reliable site for Frilled Coquette, and the strangler figs here attract Spot-billed Toucanets, Bare-throated Bellbirds, and hoards of tanagers when fruiting.
