The hike is hard in the beginning but it gets better after the first third of the way. Make sure you take water with you and you have good trainers or boots. Really nice forest and stunning views. Be careful and don't leave the path,...More

Husband and I did this hike yesterday, after fairly heavy but short lived rain. As a result the path was slippy and you had to be really careful going both up and down, but this wasn’t unmanageable. It is steep, an average of 17% gradient,...More

A great immersion in a rain forest. Will get your daily cardio exercise. Need proper shoes for a good grip and avoid when raining as it can get slippery. Great views of the west coast of the island from the summit of this granite outcrop....More

This is a lovely walk through the trees up the hill and you are rewarded with a lovely view along the coast when you get to the top. As the walk is all uphill it is obviously more strenuous than a flat walk. The view...More

This area is stunning. We drove through it with a guide who took us to some wonderful viewpoints and also took us to the Mission which was very interesting. It was very quiet and cool in the National Park and we loved it.

It's about 50 minutes by car, through the centre of Victoria and then up Sans Souci Road. Morne Blanc and Copolia are in the same area as Casse Dent Trail and are better.
