This year’s Hike Fest started with a Moderate hike (10.8km) from the beautiful village of Soufriere to Bellevue Chopin; which showcases segment two of the Waitukubuli National Trail.
The Soufriere Estate to Bellevue Chopin trail highlights an old slave route, old estates and historic buildings reminds us of Dominicaâ€™s history of a plantation society and the era of colonization
Some of the areas of interest on this trail are: Old slave route, Sulphur springs, Traditional living, Palmiste Ridge (optional), Livestock & small agricultural farming, Charcoal production and Historic buildings (Palmiste to Bois Cotlette Route)
Despite the rainy conditions all throughout the hike, it was a beautiful trail, and I will definitely walk the trail again. Here are some few pictures that I was able to take without getting my camera wet….enjoy!
