We parked at Loterie farms and started the hike from there. It's $5 per person to do it. The hike is narrow, steep, and rocky at times so it might not be the best if you don't hike much or for small children, but we loved it! A little ways up by the stream we saw several monkeys! We only... More

Great views of the sea and surroundings, however the road to go there is very steep and narrow. Only a few parking spot available at the top so avoid peak hours ...

There are multiple ways to get to the top of Pic Pardis. While you can drive up to the top there isn't any good place to park and vehicles have been broken into if left on the side of the road there. If your into hiking park your vehicle at Lottery farms. They do charge $5 per person to access... More

I also had a crummy rental car and made it within 100 yards of the top. It is a LONG hike up, which is fine if the heat is not an issue and you crave the hike. The views are great indeed. Even overcast as i was our day up. To get there follow the signs to "pic paradise", not... More

Very much enjoyed this lovely hike through the forest to the summit of Paradise Peak. The trail head begins and ends at Loterie Farm an eco-lodge beautifully situated in a lovely valley below the mountain. After your hike enjoy a cold drink, a delicious drink, and a swim in the beautiful swimming pool and grounds of Loterie Farm.

We started our hike at Loterie Farms, a very nice place. We only hiked to the half way point as we have some knee problems. It was a very steep, Rocky climb but well worth it. The view was great! I'm sure the top is even better. Be sure to take water and wear good climbing shoes. Wouldn't recommend this... More

We enjoyed the hike up and got great views. Go up to the towers. There's a trail to the right that says view--instead cross the road and go up by the towers to the right and left for views. The hike up is steep--over boulders but there are rocks to hold onto. The route they recommend down is easier, but... More

We has a crummy car rental. The road isn't paved. It is like an original dirt/rock road. Made it within 1050 feet. There was a huge puddle I wouldn't drive through. Parked and started to hike. It was just me and my daughter. Not another soul was around. Something startled us and we ran back to the car. Yes, we... More

We drove up the narrow road to the very top. Its a little tricky when other vehicles are on it but somehow it works. If you get freaked out driving up steep, rutted out roads, then close your eyes and let someone else drive. lol! It freaks me out but I slowly got used to it. My husband drove because... More

Be prepared to walk fifteen to twenty minutes after parking your car , and driving on rocky roads. You only see one side of the island, and you sweat your pants of
