Rincon and Habio Waterfalls are located in Rincon Valley, Las Cuevas which is on the north coast of Trinidad (to get to Las Cuevas, refer to Getting Around: North Coast Road) for more details. Rincon Road is a side road off the North Coast Road (NCR) and that intersection is located at this point on Google Maps. Heading east, Rincon Road is on the right and is most easily identified by a blue sign which says “Rincon Well #1″ as the actual street sign is almost unrecognizable (refer to pic below). There is a bar at the intersection as well.

Turning into Rincon Road, drive along until you see the side road pictured below on your left. There is no street sign identifying this road but I don’t think it’ll be too difficult to find as there isn’t much other roads along the main one. Just to confirm you’re at the right place, there should be a stand pipe at the north western corner of this intersection and after a short distance driving onto this unnamed road, you should cross Rincon River.

On this road, I normally park near a house on the right and start hiking from there as shown by the Mapped Route to Rincon Waterfall. As you walk along that road, you will come upon a sharp bend with a side road that goes steeply uphill on the right as shown below. Take the road that goes uphill which leads to a wooden house.

Pass to the left of the house and you will see a breadfruit tree next to a worn out path. This would be considered the trailhead for the hike with the path leading uphill through some citrus plants to the actual trail. From there, its straight onto Rincon and Habio Waterfalls.
