The Oriole Walkway Trail starts at Hill Top near the Bank of Montserrat and runs SW to Cassava Ghaut. Highlights include an abundance of flora and fauna. Excellent views of the Silver Hills, the northern part of the island and Olveston can also be seen from this trail.

We were lucky and had a guide, but we could easily have done the trail by ourselves and seen a great deal. Going with someone who knew the trail made it even better since there are many things of interest that aren't readily apparent -...More

We started from the trail behind the Hilltop Café. Fortunately we had some notes that told us how to get to the trail proper - ie head up the hill, go right at the not well marked junction then left up a concrete road, when...More

This trail will take you to the jungle rain forest, you'll come across giant trees, former banana plantations which still give fruit mixed with the overgrown jungle. Wear good hiking shoes, bring some drinking water and enjoy montserrat's best.

Quite a steep hike to get to the start of the trail, but worth it. This trail is very steep! The Montserrat trail map lists it as moderate, but I would disagree! However, the view from Lawyer's Mountain is worth it. I would also hire...More

This is one of Montserrat's more-walked trails, which isn't saying it's crowded (I've yet to meet anybody on it). It just means that it's regularly maintained. Still, it's rough and occasionally slippery so I wouldn't advise doing it after a lot of rain. It's the...More

i started up Oriole trail, but decided I wanted to reach the mountain peak. This was a near disaster as the rain forest without a trail is quite treacherous. Once I found the trail on the steep descent it was a relatively simple walk. The...More

Great walk - 2.5 hours one way, taking it easy, plenty of water required (Platypus system perfect). Led by James "Scriber" Daly, who knows EVERYTHING there is to know about the trail - an absolute highlight - and that was before I saw the female...More
