For those looking for less strenuous, leisurely strolls amongst the island’s lush natural trails, you can check out Edith Falls nestled in Chaguaramas ’Tucker Valley, or Balandra Basin located on the northeastern coast of Trinidad between the fishing villages of Salybia and Rampanalgas. Both of these hikes should take about thirty minutes to complete and will take you along pristine, lush footpaths. Over in Tobago, Argyle Falls in Roxborough promises a relaxing and peaceful walk leading to a beautiful, three-level waterfall.
Just a little bit more on the strenuous side in Trinidad are popular spots such as the stunning Turure Water Steps in Cumaca Village in Valencia, as well as the hidden Double River Falls found deep within theNorthern Range near to Brasso Seco Village.
Of course, if you are looking for a real challenge, be sure to check out some of the islands more demanding treks such as Paria Waterfall located in Trinidad’s NorthCoast hills, and Rincon Waterfall just two kilometres away from the popular Las Cuevas Beach.Both of these hikes demand a certain level of fitness and stamina, but they are well worth the effort for those who can keep up!
Hiking to T&T’s waterfalls is one of the most rewarding experiences you can have on the islands, but please remember to maintain a healthy respect for their natural power. It is advisable to contact a tour group or professional guide.
