It took about 45 mins to walk to where we needed to be to see the birds. Adequate walking shoes/boots required. Hot but shady. We saw Orioles, Peewee, Hummingbirds and St Lucian Parrots and a few other birds.

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...More
