Manulot Rapid Hike
It's a rapid, it's a great mass of water cascading in the forest. What a wonder!! Welcome to Matura, North-eastern Trinidad where this hike starts on a wide gravel road between pine trees.
Walk until gravel road begins to get narrow and is replaced by natural forest. Hike on a gradual uphill to the top of a ridge, then downhill on very slippery rocks. Cross a stream and continue along undulating terrain on the descent to "Matura River". Distance covered about 4 miles (6.44 km).
Change into river shoes. Trek carefully on slippery rocks to"Manulot Rapid". Swim and relax.
Distance now covered -: 6.5 miles (10.46 km).
On departing the Rapids take a familiar trail out of the river, change into dry sneakers and walk to where hiking began. A day well spent.
