Mountain biking, hiking and kayaking excursions showcase a picturesque slice of Dominica most people do get to see. Following are some of the many scenic hiking routes to be found in Dominica.

Trafalgar Falls
Difficulty: Easy
Starting point 4 Miles northeast of Roseau, in Trafalgar

Trafalgar Falls is actually a pair of adjacent waterfalls offering a grand view. From the road 10 to 15 minutes walk along a well-maintained path brings you to a viewing platform where you can photograph and see both of the falls. Exploration on the left side of the taller falls is not advised.

Ti-Tou Gorge
Difficulty: Easy
Starting Point 5-1/2 Miles northeast of Roseau, in Laudat.

The trip to Ti-Tou Gorge “Little Throat? Gorge in Carib – is a swim to the base of a waterfall through a series of natural “rooms and ponds? formed by high cliff walls canopied by interlaced trees. Dept varies depending on waterfall; the canopied light filtering down the mountainside within the gorge is spectacular.

A hot spring tumbles down a short wall just outside the entrance of the gorge, which you will want to soak in after the cool waters of the falls. To get to the gorge, drive a half –mile beyond laudat.

Emerald Pool
Difficulty: Easy
Starting Point 8 miles Northeast of Roseau

Tucked a mere 5 Minutes off the interior Canefield –Castle Bruce road most, this 40ft waterfall is Dominica’s most accessible waterfall with a natural wooden walkway.

Freshwater Lake
Difficulty: Easy
Starting Point 5 Mile northeast of Roseau, in Laudat

Freshwater lake rests at the end of a 2-1/2 mile stone road that begins in the town of laudat. This is Dominica’s Largest Lake and the source of the Roseau River.

Though it’s only 55 ft deep, it has historically been thought to be bottomless and a persistent deep legend tells of a one-eyed denizen of the deep that resides in the lake. The elevated areas around the lake offer magnificent view of the East Coast and the Town of Grand Fond and Rosalie.
