Chaguaramas Hike Extreme

Details

Welcome to Chaguaramas, the western peninsula of Trinidad. Embark on an extreme hike which ultimately tests your mental and physical abilities. The hike starts on  historic "Morne Catherine Road", on concrete road all the way to the summit of the tallest peak of western Trinidad, 1,745 feet (532 meters).  

From here, trek downhill through forest through the "Golf Course to Macqueripe Trail". This trail leads to a ridge which affords beautiful views of the Caribbean Sea and culminates at  "Macqueripe Bay" car park.

Trek to the popular "Tracking Station Road" at a point where further trekking leads through hilly forest to "Four Palmiste Hill", then onto a ridge, to "Samaan Tree Park".

Walk to the Golf Course into more forest and embark on the toughest trek of this entire course. It's a very steep hill known as "Archer's Hill" which leads to almost the top of Morne Catherine Road and thereafter, downhill back to Morne Catherine Road.
