We hiked up to Antelope Falls on a late morning in May.To clarify, Antelope Falls is NOT in the Cockscomb Jaguar Preserve, but rather in Mayflower-Bociwana National Park.The weather was hot and humid, but we were ready with a pack full of water, snacks and Deep Woods OFF Dry. As we started up the trail, we were joined by a local girl named Rebecca. She had made the trip many times and showed us a few highlights along the way that we otherwise might have missed. The trail starts off fairly level, then becomes steeper and steeper as you move higher, until you come to a series of fixed ropes to help you pull yourself up. It 's moderately strenuous, but when you reach the top and see the views below,the falls and the natural swimming pool, it's sooo worth it. As with most steep trails, the way down is at least as hard as going up, but take your time to enjoy the scenery and you'll be fine.
In the interest of making the experience as pleasant as possible, you may want to consider good shoes, water, snacks,insect repellent and of course swimwear and a towel so you can enjoy the pool at the top.
