I have been coming to Grand Cayman for 26 years & this was my first experience hiking the Mastic Trail. It was a great experience. Our guide Stuart Mailer was excellent. Without his knowledge, this hike would not have been as great. Trekking poles would...More

The trail involves 1/4 easy gravel path, 1/8 board walk over seasonal wet spots and the rest is moderate coral path. Nice to have a free self guided activity. Our group had mixed feelings particularly in regards to the coral Stone in the path that...More

This is a relatively easy hike with somewhat interesting foliage, but ultimately we didn't feel like it was anything special. We also didn't do the tour, so if you're interested maybe look into that option instead.

Nice hike to get away from the hustle and bustle of things. I suggest going early in the morning prior to the heat of the day. Take water and wear good walking shoes - no sandals/flip flops!

We hiked for about an hour (about half the trail) and enjoyed seeing the parrots and other wildlife. It was nice to see an undeveloped part of the island.

No spectacular views, but some nice unique rock formations and wildlife. Sheltered from the wind so can get quite hot and humid.
