The trail is Ok, but there are very few signs and no interpretation. It is easy to get lost. Finding the trailhead is made harder by the lack of signage on the road. But the worst aspect was the aggressive unfriendly forestry employee, who demanded $50 EC to cover the entry for the two of us and was angry that... More

We did this hike with our children aged 4 & 7. They managed it without difficulty.

We saw a few of the St Lucian Parrots,... More

Getting to the trailhead is half the adventure. There is a big sign off of the high way telling you which road to take and it says “6 miles”. From there you are on your own. I did not keep track but it certainly seemed like more than 6 miles and we had to ask several times which way to... More

The Des Cartiers rainforest is a beautiful hike through the mountains west of Micoud. It will take a couple of hours and there is a $10 US charge, which includes the guide. There should be a guide at the ranger station every weekday but he may be on the trail leading a hike so you may have to be patient... More
