“Ti Tou Gorge!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

Midlham falls was nice, especially if you like hiking. It took about 45 minute hike or 25 minute fast walk to reach and was beautiful. The gorge was like a slot canyon that you could swim up into and have fun...totally best local tour!

“Good hike and great swim”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

The hike to Middleham Falls is supposed to take 45 min, but it took us (family of 4, kids 11 and 14) more than 1 hour to reach the falls. The walk is beautifull and your hard work is rewarded when you reach the falls!! No need to go with a guide, there is only 1 trail, so all very easy to find.

Titou Gorge is also wonderfull. We were there alone and that adds to the experience. Yes, the water is cold, but isn't that just what you need in that hot climate? If you drive a rental car, again no need at all for a guide. The place is not well signposted, but still easy to find and an absolute must-do.

“Both are worth a detour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

The way to Middleham Falls from Roseau-Laudat road last 1 to 1and1/2 hour one way and is well maintained. It climbs up and then drops down to waterfalls.The view from platform near waterfall is amazing. If you like to swim you have to go down to the small "lake" under the waterfall.Its fantastic.As for Ti Tou Gorge, I found the swimming through the narrow gorge to the waterfall more scarry and more exciting, but it could be also because we have been there later in the evening and we were the only visitors by that time there. Both sights are woth a trip, even if you are not staying nearby.

“Great hike!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

The falls were beautiful and our tour guide Mervin Henderson was especially great due to his knowledge and love of the area. Definitely recommend this hike, but only with the Singing Ninja-- Mervin Henderson!

“Awesome Hiking in Dominica”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

The hike to Middleham Falls is well worth checking out. We booked a guided hike with Donaldson from Nature Isle Explorers (NIE Tours) out of Roseau on our cruise day, and it was truly a highlight of our trip. Be warned, the hike to Middleham Falls is a very strenuous hike over rough uneven terrain (think tree roots, rocks, wet, muddy ground, lots of up and down). You'll be trying to balance yourself the entire way. It takes about 1:30 to 1:45 total time if you are an experienced hiker. We had a small group of 3 couples in our 20s-30s, but did see some older groups making the trek. I would not recommend taking small children to Middleham Falls. If you are sure on your feet and don't mind a strenuous hike, Middleham Falls in Morne Trios National Park is wonderful.

Ti Tou Gorge is crowded, and like everyone says, probably some of the coldest water you will ever willingly get into. The short 10 minute hike to the Gorge is relatively easy, and there is a place to sit at the site. All ages (as long as you can swim) will enjoy this site. Most guides will require some sort of life preserver, and you will want it if you swim into the gorge as the current is very strong and could push under even the most experienced swimmer. There is a small shallow natural pool at the entrance of the gorge if you don't want to swim inside where the current is strong and it is deeper water. This site was used in the filming of Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest. Very unique experience swimming in a canyon with a waterfall. If you get there, don't be afraid to get in. It's unlikely you'll come across such a unique swimming hole again.

I recommend finding a tour group (guided - best option, or a taxi familiar with the area) for both of these attractions. The roads in Dominica are very steep and wet from all of the rainfall, and difficult to drive if you are unfamiliar with the island.
