Hikefest this year ended with a hike the from beautiful village of Capuchin all the way to Cabrits National Park, showcasing segment 14 of the Waitukubuli National Trail.

Unlike the first two to hikes (Salybia to Pagau Bay and Soufriere to Scotts Head), this is a coastal trail which begins and ends within a historical setting from the Canna Heritage Park to the Cabrits Fort Shirley.

Some of the other interesting area along this trail includes the Connor Heritage Park, view of Les Saints & Guadeloupe, Old Church, Rhino horn, villages of Clifton, Toucari & Cottage Cliffs, and Belle Hall Beach.

It is a moderate hike (10.8 km.), although there are some areas along the coastal part of the trail that can be a bit tricky, and will you need to literally climb or drag yourself across if you don’t want to get wet. Look out for falling rock, and wear comfort shoes because 80% of the trail requires you to walk through stones.

All in all it was a Beautiful hike, with wonderful people on nice and sunny day. Just couldn’t be better. If you have a chance to hike Capuchin to Cabrits don’t hesitate to do it, you won’t be disappointed. As always, here are some photos from the hike…enjoy!
