The hike to Middleham Falls is well worth checking out. We booked a guided hike with Donaldson from Nature Isle Explorers (NIE Tours) out of Roseau on our cruise day, and it was truly a highlight of our trip. Be warned, the hike to Middleham Falls is a very strenuous hike over rough uneven terrain (think tree roots, rocks, wet, muddy ground, lots of up and down). You'll be trying to balance yourself the entire way. It takes about 1:30 to 1:45 total time if you are an experienced hiker. We had a small group of 3 couples in our 20s-30s, but did see some older groups making the trek. I would not recommend taking small children to Middleham Falls. If you are sure on your feet and don't mind a strenuous hike, Middleham Falls in Morne Trios National Park is wonderful.

Ti Tou Gorge is crowded, and like everyone says, probably some of the coldest water you will ever willingly get into. The short 10 minute hike to the Gorge is relatively easy, and there is a place to sit at the site. All ages (as long as you can swim) will enjoy this site. Most guides will require some sort of life preserver, and you will want it if you swim into the gorge as the current is very strong and could push under even the most experienced swimmer. There is a small shallow natural pool at the entrance of the gorge if you don't want to swim inside where the current is strong and it is deeper water. This site was used in the filming of Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest. Very unique experience swimming in a canyon with a waterfall. If you get there, don't be afraid to get in. It's unlikely you'll come across such a unique swimming hole again.

I recommend finding a tour group (guided - best option, or a taxi familiar with the area) for both of these attractions. The roads in Dominica are very steep and wet from all of the rainfall, and difficult to drive if you are unfamiliar with the island.

With all the rain and volcanos on Dominica, it's no wonder the waterfalls are spectacular. They're worth the hike, even though most are pretty short. Two things to prepare for TiTou Gorge - take a floaty and the water is chilling! A very cool experience if you get the chance.

Ti Tou Gorge was amazing - a brisk swim through the gorge to come upon rushing waterfalls! It doesn't hurt that Johnny Depp was in these waters for filming of Pirates of the Caribbean 2. :)

45 minute minute trek was more like a 90 minute Batan Death March on the day we went. They had not had any rain in 30 days- we got it all. Soaked to the skin and 1000% humidity. the hike seemed straight up both ways. The waterfall at the end is spectacular, but the its back up the ladder to go back to the parking lot. Be in shape for this 45 minute (ha-ha) trek. Ti- Tou Gorge is cold but its seems to warm up a bit after you get used to it. Waterfall inside as well there too. On this trip we also went into the warm springs to warm up- felt good. Elvis was our tour guide and he did a great job guiding us thru the rain forest and the flood.
