The view at the top is worth the effort to get there ... The tour guide's explanations along the way are interesting and informative.

It was one of the easier places to find. No parking lot, which is normal for the island. When you park on the side of the road, a guide greets you and takes you to pay the hiking fee. Our guide was very helpful. She...More

Did the Gros Piton Hike today. Took about 1.5 hours to go up, and 1:15 to descend, plus some rest periods in between. Had a tour company organize it for me for $100 US. But, I’d recommend taking a taxi there instead. The tour company...More

Beautiful views on a moderate-to-strenuous hike. The views from the half-way point are excellent, too. A guide is assigned, at $50 per group. They take credit cards. Ask your hotel to send you by taxi. The hike is over an easy trail with some areas...More

The hike took us about 1 hour and 40 minutes to get to the top, with several stops along the way. The first half of the hike isn’t too bad, but the second half definitely got our attention. The trail is pretty much a rocky...More

We did the Gros Piton Trail from the base, starting at the beach which we reached by boat from our resort. This adds an additional 625 meters of climbing that is mostly vertical and rocks. It took me the 1st quarter of the trail to...More

This hike is tough. I recommend getting there early. We started around 7:30am. There is a lot of rock/boulder scrambling. If you are uncomfortable grabbing and pulling yourself up with rocks or tree limbs/roots, you may want to wear gloves. The nice thing about the...More

No.The only entrance is through a path with awaiting tour guides and the welcome center. It is not a typical path. I really would not recommend the attempt. The hike is worth every penny and more.
