Upper Concord waterfall - approx. 4.5hrs (Grade 02)
It takes about 45 mins hiking through a mix of cultivated land, wild flowers and natural forest to get to the waterfall. Once there, there is a beautiful, secluded pool for a swim before heading back. Wear shoes with good traction that can handle getting wet since this hike includes many stream crossings with no bridges. You must also have good balance and be fit enough to clamber over small to medium sized boulders. Bring insect repellant as there are mosquitoes at the waterfall.
Cross Country Trail (Grand Etang to Concord) - approx. 7hrs (Grade 04)
Possibly the best hike in Grenada but recommended only for experienced hikers.
It starts in the Grand Etang forest reserve and crosses the central mountain range over to Concord waterfall on Grenada's west side. The first hour of hiking involves a climb to an altitude of roughly 2300ft along the Mt. Qua Qua trail then diverts along a trail that passes through the depts of the Grenadian forest providing a mix of every kind of tropical rainforest terrain imaginable. After about 4 to 5 hours of hiking it ends at the Concord waterfall for a refreshing and well deserved swim. This is a tough hike which requires good physical fitness. It is a trail less travelled therefore some parts of it can be overgrown. This hike involves many stream crossing and some parts of the trail can be muddy. The following items are recommended:
Shoes with good traction that can handle mud and water.
Lightweight clothing that cover legs
Water and light snacks

Mt St Catherine - approx. 7hrs (Grade 04)
Hike about 2.5hrs through the belly of the Grenadian rainforest to arrive at the island's highest peak set at 2757ft above sea level. From there observe the breath taking panorama which includes many offshore islands. Feels like being on top of the world. This hike requires physical fitness and good balance. Some parts of the trail can be muddy and overgrown. Consider wearing lightweight clothing that cover the arms and legs. Proper hiking shoes are recommended.
Mt Qua Qua - approx. 5hrs (Grade 03)
Approximately an hour and a half hike through the rain forest ends at the top of Mt Qua Qua set at 2370 ft above sea level. Along the way and at the top there are view points for observing the beautiful terrain and surrounding forest. Some parts of the trail can be muddy. Wear shoes with good traction for this hike.
Black Rock Waterfall - approx. 3.5hrs (Grade 02)
This is one of my special spots, unknown to tourists. It takes approximately 30 to 45 minutes to drive to the start of the trail. The actual hike to the waterfall is roughly 1km/0.62mls and takes about 30 to 45 minutes. Once there you will find an absolutely beautiful pool to relax in. We will take about 30 minutes to enjoy it before hiking back.
Some parts of the trail can be muddy so wear shoes or closed toe sandals with good traction.
There is no changing room so consider wearing your swimwear below your clothes.
1 pers = $120US
2-3 pers = $65US/pers
4-6 pers = $60US/pers
Shoreline Trail – approx. 3.5hrs (Grade 01)
It starts with a short walk to a lookout point for a panoramic view of Grenada’s east coast and surrounding forest including the extinct volcanic crater which gives the reserve the name Grand Etang, then we’ll embark on a roughly one hour hike around the lake. We’ll hike along a relatively flat trail which takes us through three different ecosystems to emerge sweaty, muddy but extremely happy.
The trail gets muddy at the end so appropriate footwear is recommended.
1 pers=$120 US
2-3 pers=$60 US/pers
4-6 pers=$55 US/pers
Honeymoon and St. Margaret's - approx. 5hrs (Grade 03)
This is an absolutely beautiful hike which provides just enough challenge without being overly strenuous. The trail starts within the Grand Etang forest reserve and weaves it's way through the depths of the forest for approximately 1.5 hours before we make our first official stop at Honey falls (Pictured above). Roughly 20 minutes is spent there then we head on to St. Margaret's for a stop of approximately 30 minutes. After swimming and enjoying both waterfalls, there is a 30 minutes hike to complete a loop back to the start.
Please wear closed toe shoes/sandals that provide good traction on wet, muddy surfaces.
This hike requires good physical fitness and is not recommended for persons with hip, knee and back problems.
