Excited to be in Grand Cayman and able to get a workout in....but this trail was not clearly marked and both the North and South entrances "off the beaten track". IF you decide to walk it I would strongly suggest long pants (yep it is extremely hot and humid) along with fully enclosed toe shoes.

This trail is of historic importance and a great way to see what the island looked like prior to development. Be sure to bring water, wear insect repellent and good shoes (this is not for flip flops!) It's only 2 miles one way but it gets rocky and it's definitely hot in the forest with very little breeze. You can... More

Surrounded by an amazing turquoise water all around the island, it's nice sometimes to go for a walk in the "forest" (this is at least the feeling that I had). You can hear lots of different birds, and watch beautiful trees. It is a very easy walk for the whole family. Bring lots of water as it can be very... More

Should use a guide - we only went half way in - it was just to hot and sweaty for a walk without knowing what we were looking at.

Well... if you really don´t have anything else to do... this could be a good thing to experience on the island. There is a lot of birds, snakes and nice flora. The only thing I don´t like about this trail is that there is nothing at the end. You "just" walk and there is no "waterfall, hill etc.". But it... More

My family went at the end of the dry season so it wasn't as lush and active as they had hoped. We did hire a guide and it would have been a little bit of a bust without him, even though it would have been free- the fee for the knowledgeable guide, David, was worth it. It was very frustrating... More

Bring lots of water, a small snack and sturdy shoes. It can be done as a return voyage in about 40 minutes at an athletic pace, or stretched out over a couple hours as a leisurely guided tour. Lots to see and the National Trust guide Stuart Mailer knows every bush in there. After 3pm is the best time to... More

This is an interior walk, through woods, but much of the way is on coral. It starts out nice and easy, but then you are walking up and around coral. I loved it, but if you have anyone that has issues with walking, it is difficult, so take that into consideration. It's not a circle, so you have to come... More

The difficulty of the trail is not in question, not hard, flat. The unevenness though of the trail is challenging in that we have a person who has sight issues and we only walked .7 because there is so much coral to walk over at various times it was dangerous due to tripping possibilities. There were a few spots where... More
