The road up to Copolia is very windy. It was quite rainy the first day we tried to get there, so we decided against going. We went the next day. There is no real parking for the trail, when we went, there were around three...More

It's one of the trails available in Victoria. If you like hiking its good, if not there are other options available to get to the top of the trail. The walk is nice though and will take about 1.5 hours to complete.

Beautiful trail, there is a hotel in front of the entrance where you can have a tea with home-made pastries. Very nice.

Excellent location for viewing the Mahe island. MUST SEE when on Mahe. It requires 1-1.5hour of walk to the top but it is worth it! Walk is also magnificent - the forest is beatiful!

The trail starts near the Copolia lodge, just some 30 meters up the road. You can get there by bus and walk, however don't be confused with the bus going to Copolia turnpoint which is not near the trail: you need the bus going to...More

Across the winding steep main road, Sans Souci, from Copolia Lodge, Copolia Trail gives you two-three hours of hard work climbing through the topical forest over rocks and twisty roots in many places to reach the summit (580 m). We hiked through a downpour part...More

Located just across the street from Copolia lodge is a nice uphill (aren't they all) trail yielding panoramic views of the harbor and Eden island area below. Trail is well marked and not hard to follow. That is until you get to the very top....More

When I did the walk, there was a security guard posted at the start of the trail. I'm not aware of any guide or guard who may accompany tourist on the walk. On weekends there are usually groups of locals walking the trail... More
