Just north of Fort de France, you will have beautiful views and great hikes through awesome flora. The air is much cooler than at sea level, and numerous streams tumble down from above.

We started driving upward after visiting the garden of balata. The road is very narrow and go through pristine forests. We did not cross many cars so am not sure this is a popular touristic point, but overall, driving around the moutain and stopping at view points, cascades or just to discover giant fougères is a must, especially with a little infant. We took the D1 to get to St Pierre on the way down, which also offers splendid views on the ocean.

There are pitons in St. Pierre. While we drove we saw these pitons. I took some pictures. They are beautiful!

The only problem is that there are no parking places.

Worthwhile to see!

Its a real contrast to go up into the mountains compared to the beaches along the coast, a few degrees cooler is quite noticeable, lush foliage, cascades, and plenty of hiking trails generally with nearby parking. At the end of the rainy season the trails are muddy and sometimes flooded. The journey is of course short, the roads are good, and a circular tour in your rental is easy to devise. Limited facilities, take some refreshments.

When you leave Fort-de-France on the N3, a very steep and winding road, heading north, in just a few kilometers you pass through lush vegetation, generously watered by abundant rainfall. The contrast with the low altitude is impressive. A stop at the top of the coast, at the starting point of the hiking trails, is worth making, even if only for a few minutes.
The peaks of Carbet constitute a mountainous group of volcanic origin in the north of Martinique. The highest peak is the Lacroix peak which rises to an altitude of 1,197 m. Other important peaks are Morne Piquet (1,160 m, to the north), Piton Dumauzé (1,112 m) and Piton de l'Alma (1,107 m).
Attention ! The ascent of these peaks should be reserved for experienced and equipped hikers because the slopes are very steep and the trails slippery due to the high humidity of the climate. In fact, the paths are little used, little or not marked, and often difficult to distinguish due to the vegetation. The routes are all very steep and even dangerous due to the risk of falling or slipping.
