Summit of Edith Waterfalls
Start of this hike takes us on "Squadron Road", all the way to the summit of the tallest peak in Chaguaramas "Morne Catherine" which is 1,686 feet (514 meters) and mileage completed here is 5.1 miles (8.21 kms). From the summit, another route is taken through the forest all the way where the terrain is a mixture of steep uphills and downhills and it is here your fitness ability is really put to the test. There is absolutely no pronounced trail along this route as this part of the forest which makes the hike all the more interesting. The trail eventually comes to a stream that ultimately leads us to the top of the popular Edith Waterfalls. Total distance covered to our final destination is 6.2 miles (9.98 kms).....and the height of the summit of Edith Falls is 869 feet (265 meters).
Actual height of Edith Waterfalls is 767 feet (234 meters).
Panoramic views of the Gulf of Paria and the "5 Islands"
