At an elevation of 4,747 feet, Dominica’s tallest peak requires a rigorous day hike, but the natural scenery and panoramic views are worth it.

A very steep one hour drive took us fro Portsmouth up into the mountains to the Morne Diablotins National Park where we walked for about 3km. through the rain forest - in the rain - on the Syndicate Trail. A pleasant enough walk, with lots of huge mahogany and teak trees. The drive to and from the forest was as... More

If you are a true hiker, this is a hike you MUST go on when visiting Dominica! If spending 7.5 hours on a trail that is completely vertical does not sound like fun, or if getting your fashionable sports wear ruined in the mud is unacceptable: stay away! For those of you who've hiked in the northeastern part of the... More

Took us a little over 4 hours to get to the top. First half is a kinda steep trail. Second half is mostly climbing up slippery rocks and going over/under trees that grow sideways. The tree part was a lot of fun, kinda like a jungle gym. It's also really cool when you get towards the top, it opens up... More

Well, we did not make it to the top. It was our first full day in Dominica and we were totally not acclimated to the new climate and its hydration needs. We turned back when we were pretty close to the top, but the mud, slippery rocks, roots, and branches made the going too rough. We did not use a... More

Granted he was in tip top shape! 3 twenty somethings and a grandpa conquered this mountain on the 30th of August, 2005. It does indeed have steep terrain, and knarly climbing at the top, but well worth the adventure. We did not use a guide and hit the trail by ourselves, but being a NOLS grad myself, I was not...

We are well used to mountain climbing,... More

I've hiked many of Dominica's mountains, and this is one of the hardest. Like most of them, it's a stiff 2/3 hour hike straight up. Towards the end, it's some difficult clambering over roots and under or through branches and vegetation. En route, you get some awesome glimpses of views - I recall one looking down on Portsmouth. But at... More
