Details on the Summit of Edith Falls
Rating of this hike is (6) Challenging
Welcome to Chaguaramas, the Western Peninsula of Trinidad. We head into Bellerand Road leading to the Golf Club/Course. We park mid-way along this road an our adventure begins.
We head on uphill the really steep "Archer's Hill" that is actually the shorter route to the summit of Morne Catherine. Distance covered to this point is .8 miles and the altitude at the summit is 1,742 feet. At the summit, we take another trail leading ultimately to the trail from the Golf Club to Macqueripe Beach and along that route, we make a diversion (1,611 feet) where through a mixture of uphills and downhills, we will eventually reach to a ravine that leads ultimately to the tip top of Edith Waterfall. Altitude at the summit of the waterfall is 869 feet and 1.4 miles in total is accomplished.
One point to take note here folks is that this hike is PURELY a fitness hike with very little or no swimming at the summit here as there are no swim pools whatsoever.
Coming back out, we continue on the trail back to the Macqueripe Trail and make our way back to our parked vehicles. Total distance covered in all.....7.5 miles.
