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 couldnâ€™t be better. If you have a chance to hike Capuchin to Cabrits donâ€™t hesitate to do it, you wonâ€™t be disappointed. As always, here are some photos from the hike…enjoy!
As usual the photographs are amazing! Was this a hike organized by a group or is it something less formal? What was the timeframe for completing this trail?
Beautiful indeed! It is almost sad, that I cannot be part of all this beauty right now. But I am not giving the hope of a few short years to come and go by. I will soon be there.
This hike was part of Hikefest 2010; it was organized by the Dominica Hotel & Tourism Association and Discover Dominica Authority.
This hike took us between 4-5 hours to complete.
