We hiked the Mastic Trail starting from the north entrance, which is important to note because this trail is not a loop, you will need to double back when finished. The vegetation is very interesting, especially up close. You won't see much wildlife other than bugs and the occasional snake. Use plenty of quality bug spray, pack water, and be... More

This island is flat and developed so your hiking choices are severely limited. The Mastic trail is the best trail you'll get on the island. It feels like you are in the middle of nowhere and it feels kind of jungly. You will park your car in the dirt pull-off, read the sign about the wildlife (note that the snakes... More

We made it about a half mile into this trail before turning back. I was so disappointed, but only had flip flops. The mosquitos were insane. The terrain was rough, rocky and very muddy. I came out looking like I was in a swamp from the knees down (and probably smelled like it). The tree cover is dense and there... More

This is one of those attractions which I would like to rate Good rather than Average but since TA doesn't give that option it's going to have to be the latter. It's a very pleasant walk which gives you a rare opportunity to get away from it all and to enjoy nature as it is. Thanks to previous reviewers, it's... More

We anticipated the bugs, but not so many, what we did not anticipate was all the lava we would be walking over. It made for a very unstable environment. Not our best experience in Cayman.

We hired Paul Watler from the National Trust to take us on the trail. He was very informative about plants and birds. We even saw a Cape May Warbler migrating thru - a new life bird. I suggest hiring a guide for the trail to really enjoy.

This is an easy hike, but wear shoes that completely cover your feet, because the footing is a little bit rough in places. We hiked from one end to the other and back. I think the suggestion to hire a guide is good (though we did not); on a hike like this, the little things - a bird here, a... More

I love hikes like this. Long enough that you get into nature but short enough my family will go. It was hot and we sweat a bunch, but fun none the less. Didn't see parrots, but did see a snake and some pretty small birds. Bring lots of water and good shoes to avoid turning an ankle.
