Waitukubuli National Trail on the Caribbean island of Dominica
Why Nature Lovers Should Hike The Caribbean’s Longest Trail
By Dawn Hammon


From short to long hikes, you'll find the best the Caribbean island of Dominica has to offer on the 114-mile Waitukubuli National Trail (WNT).
The WNT’s 14 segments have amazing viewpoints, waterfalls, and historic sites. It connects the southern point of Scott's Head to the Cabrits National Park on the northern coast.
For nature lovers, the nearly 4-mile walk on Segment 10 takes visitors from the village of Colihaut Heights on the west side of the island to the Syndicate Trail inland.
You'll see Jaco and Sisserou Parrots in the forest, and take in expanses of farmland. Similarly, Segment One offers nature and wildlife, along with a view of nearby Martinique.
Experienced hikers can traverse segments 12, eight, or nine and be rewarded with the largest Gommier Tree, Kachibona Lake, river swimming, valleys, plateaus, and estates.
Between these two extremes, you'll find trail segments that range from moderate to difficult, each highlighting Dominica’s natural splendor.
