The Waitukubuli National Trail is a crown jewel for Dominica and has attracted hikers from all over the world. There are sections for all levels of hikers. This trail shows the best of all the natural sites on the island. Be prepared for some wet hiking, as you'll be in a tropical rain forest most of the time. There are... More

Starts out EASY but muddy. Then heads up the mountain and is very steep. During the descents you slide from tree to tree to stop from slipping straight down. There are 2 great lookouts that have picnic tables and covered areas. A few benches on the trail, too. Great views, heard the local parrots, and enjoyed the trail. There were... More

We only had a couple days on hiking on the trail in March 2016. Section 6 was fairly easy and we ran into some trail maintenance people who were clearing tall grass. Section 5 we were going North to South and got a bit lost after the Emerald Pool. There looked to be a part that was blocked off and... More

It was a very well marked trail but no indication of where you were, which became a bit alarming. The map bought from the forestry dept. was no help! It was exremely wet and slippy which made walking very slow. The forest was beautiful and we will never forget hearing the mountain whistler which seemed to answer my whistle. We... More

What a fun surprise!! We hiked the trail and discovered Emerald Falls! Beautiful! Learned about the movies filmed in the area! We found a taxi and driver who gave us a set rate and drove us around telling us about the island!! Great fun!

There is different segments with different difficulty(chooses to choose from) , local guards are readily available, Great for Nature lovers, endless greenery and wildlife. Eco tourism. Best trail ever. I only dislike there not much activities to do on the trail. e.g a tram or bicycle tracks.

Hike is fairly easy and you can choose to only do a portion of this hike as well. Wear good shoes though.

Generally a well-marked trail that spans the entire island and passes through a variety of forest types.
