This is the only trail I had the chance to hike during a recent trip to the Seychelles, but I'm very glad I did. I went with a local guide, which was a good choice in my case, helping me avoid some of the potential pitfalls of this trail. I'm more used to hiking trails in the Western U.S., and one of the main differences here is that a lot of the uphill climbing is over exposed tree roots, as the forest is pretty dense until you reach the bare granite rock of the summit (on the plus side, you are hiking mostly in the shade). However the summit provides an unparalleled view of the east coast of Mahe Island, and when the weather is clear enough, one can see Praslin and La Digue in the distance as well. While it does require some effort, I would recommend this as a good introductory hike in the Morne Seychellois National Park, one that left me eager to explore more if I ever return to the island..

Easy trail, nice view point at the end with carnivorous plants, probably one of the best walks on the Seychelles. Unfortunately you pay now an entrance fee. Hope the money goes in the right pocket...

This is a very pretty trail, with a spectacular view at the end in good weather. Only drawback is it is quite steep at times, though well-maintained.

Great walk, just before you start, on the road just up the hill there are 2 dogs that are very friendly but severely in need of food and care to keep them alive as they are very thin and need nourishment. So if you are a dog lover please pick up some dog food and feed the dogs and leave some with the guys at the trail head office

This iconic hike in Seychelles is definitely worth making.

Difficulty is moderate - we have made it up
in half an hour from the starting point, and then down in 45 mins since we stopped at the nice picnic points in the jungle (shown on a pic).

The view when you reach the top is unbeatable: you see airport, Eden island and some small islands nearby. There’s also a small shelter to hide from the rain on the top.

This is a nice but challenging hike about 2-3 hour hike through the jungle to the top, but it is well worth the work. There a picnic area at the top and the views are spectacular. It is a great way to see Victoria and Eden Island etc.

Easily accessible with a car to the start of the trek, although roadside parking can be a bit hit and miss, quite literally. Strenuous pull to the top (2km) on well marked but rugged path. Bring water and a camera. The payment both at the start of trail was closed for my visit and had been for a while due to pandemic reducing tourist numbers. Enjoy!

One of the best view from top of the hill. Trail is well maintained, we have done Many nature trail in Seychelles and Copolia is recommended one for tourists. There is enough signages on the way, so that you will not miss the way. Avoid the trail on the rainy day mainly due to fog on the hill you will not able to see the view properly.
Management charge 100 scr per tourist, Which I feel is good because they have maintained the trail very well. and for the residents it's free.
We were group of 8 persons, when we reached the trail point it was raining very heavily. When rain Stop we have started out trail which is approximately 800 meter height. And we finished the trail approximately in 25 minutes.

Trail is not difficult. One need to carry enough water 💦 or soft drinks, as on the way is very humid. Once you reach on top, you feel the paradise. Very beautiful view. During clear weather you can see Praslin island, Ladigue island, Denis Island, Saint Anne Island and all the nearby Islands.

Finally I would like to thank staff "BIGUTE FERMIE" for her help and guidence, She was very hospitable and Kind.

We caught a bus from Victoria to the Copolia Trail around midday - buses only run every 2 hours! The trail itself was well sign posted and timings were accurate (45 minutes walk each way). It is very steep in places, wear good walking shoes as you will be walking over tree roots and uneven ground and take plenty of water with you as there are no facilities. There is a short fixed ladder to climb just before arriving on the plateau. It is well worth the effort as you will be rewarded with spectacular views of the east side of the island overlooking Eden Island and Victoria.
