This trek is truly one to remember for the fit trekker. A great off road trek every step of the way all along undulating terrain on the Lalaja South Road, off the Arima/Blanchisseuse Road. Trekking all the way to the well known Guanapo River where a short stop off to rejuvenate and cool off a bit in preparation for the second leg of the trek.
The second leg starts off with forest trekking eventually onto Sombasson Trace where a steep and steady uphill trek awaits you. Trust me....by the time you reach at the top, you will definitely be out of breath. Once at the top, we trek back along the Lalaja South Road back to the start of the trek.
Ideally a great start for the trekker to see his/her fitness level and to spot areas to be improved.Register
