Spanny's Falls Dominica is an undiscovered treasure for the serious hiker. Although just 30 miles long and 15 wide, it has some of the most pristine montaine rainforest to be found anywhere. With several peaks over 4,000ft, it also boasts one of only two World Heritage Sites in the Eastern Caribbean - Dominica's Morne Trois Pitons National Park:

"Luxuriant natural tropical forest blends with volcanic features of high scenic appeal and scientific interest... With its precipitous slopes and deeply-incised valleys, fifty fumaroles and hot springs, freshwater lakes, a "boiling lake" and five volcanoes...together with the richest biodiversity in the Lesser Antilles, Morne Trois Pitons National Park presents a rare combination of natural features of World Heritage value. "

Dominica's well-established National Park service covers much of the island and there is an extensive network of trails that allow you to discover a wealth of hidden waterfalls, lakes, flora and fauna amid our lush tropical rainforest.

So come, Hike Dominica!

 
Featured Attraction: Middleham Falls

Random Hike

Middleham Falls
This tall fall is reached after a pleasant 1 hour walk in the pristine rainforest. Trails exist from both the Laudat side, or the Cochrane side (the one from the Laudat side is the easiest to drive to). After an initially steep climb up, it is then mostly easy going through the lush rainforest. There is some rock clambering required towards the end as one descends to the Falls, especially if you want to swim in the pool! Hint: because of the amount of spray given off by the Falls, make sure your camera is well wrapped up.
