Hiking

 

Hiking is a favorite outdoor recreational activity of many individuals and there are several groups that organise day and overnight hikes to various parts of Trinidad. These group hikes are usually on weekends or public holidays. With most of these hiking groups an individual simply has to meet the group at the designated starting point and pay a small fee to join the group on the hike. The individuals who participate in these hikes are of all ages, races, religions and sexes. When going on hikes you should always seek to wear the right hiking or water shoes for women or men and also carry water.

The hiking groups listed below are usually well organised with roll calls at the start and end of the hike plus spotters throughout the hike to ensure that participants stay on the designated trail.

For those who prefer to hike on their own, a very good source of hiking route information is "The Trinidad and Tobago Field Naturalist Club Trail Guide". Another good source of information is "Nature Trails of Trinidad" by ffrench and Bacon.

Many of the hikes that are undertaken lead to various waterfalls or other hiking points of interest or unique geological formations such as mud volcanos or caves. Other treks are undertaken to observe the natural flora and fauna.
