Finally found the place on top of the ridge as the sign was covered by branches. Had a trail guide (Shaun) and he informed us of the local flowers and plants as we went along. For us it was a pleasant walk for about 1.5 hours - if you're expecting a hike through the tropical rain forest then this will... More

This is a ridge trail that is moderately strenuous on well maintained trials. As it follows a ridge, in goes up and down so is equally strenuous in both directions. We had great weather so excellent views of the sea, the ocean, Mt Jimmy and local valleys. A more misty day might result in the mixed reviews on this site.... More

We wanted to do a bit of rainforest walking while in St Lucia and found this marked on our tourist trail. It was fairly easy to find as the trail head is directly on the main east code highway about 25 mins drive from Castries. We parked on the roadside and found the ranger's hut. It costs EC25 each to... More

An interesting walk through the rainforest. Quite challenging in parts due to the muddy ground and with few views. Worthwhile if you want a rainforest experience but there is no wildlife to see.

After we paid 100 ec dollars ( 25 per person park entry and 25 per person for mandatory guide) they mention part closed so no climb of mt la combe (no longer 3 hour circuit so now 2 hour there and back). Bit disgruntled but set off. Guide answered questions about plants but offered little spontaneously. After 35min we had... More

This trail is not far at all from Dennery, 10-15 minutes tops, and 15-20 from Castries. There are some one-lane sections of road in the area due to Hurricane Tomas, but there are barricades on the side and it was not scary. The trail has a sign, but it is pretty much facing towards traffic coming from Castries so it... More
