The Vermont Nature Trail takes you through lush rainforest with an amazing variety of tropical flora,beautiful scenery and a chance to see the famous St. Vincent Parrot in its natural habitat. Majestic cliffs reach for the sky, giving way to sweeping valleys. Ambient temperatures and abundant rainfall give rise to profusion in the growth of vegetation. The trail is in the picturesque Buccament valley within the St. Vincent Parrot Reserve and the more encompassing proposed Central Forest Reserve.

Go early in the morning and listen and look for birds. The earlier you make it to the Parrot Lookout (toward end of loop trail) the better chance you have of seeing and hearing the St Vincent Parrot. Look closely. Their yellow, blue, green colors...More

We had a beautiful hike along the trails. There is a lot of wild life and the jungle rainforest is amazing. Out of the way but worth the trip.
