Very nice hike! We went with four people, my wife and I, a lokal friend and Mitch, the Guide. It took us 4:40 way and back in a slow pace with a 30 minute break at the top. The landscape is beautiful, the view is...More

Hard hard hard. This hike is a 20 on a scale of 1-10. Everything others have written is accurate. I don’t think I fully understood the reviews until I did it. It was the most intense 6 hours of my life. I’ve done adventure races...More

It was a really hardcore hike, but absolutely worth it! The steepness gets crazy, so you have to be ready to get exhausted. I chose not to use a stick for hiking as I felt more in control this way :) We did it during...More

We came to Saint Lucia for the sunshine of course, escaping cold and dull weather in the UK. But we are also always looking for some nice trails to hike or run when we are on holiday. Having done the gros Piton, which was great,...More

I was going to write a thorough review but honestly ripharwood is 100% spot on with his advice. To summarize: there's a misconception about Mt. Gimie that it's just a long walk. This is completely false as there are steep climbs, steep drop-offs and a...More

We had a fabulous hike up Mt. Gimie over Christmas break. It's the highest point in the West Indies, about a 6 or 7 hr hike in total- rigorous, incredibly lush with a view of the entire island from the top. There's also a refreshing...More

On January 24, 2012, six colleagues and I, together with two guides, climbed Mount Gimie, the highest point in St Lucia. This is not a near vertical climb like the Petit Piton. It is not a moderate walk like the Gros Piton. It is a...More

Make no mistake about it, this is one tough hike. The hiking guide to the Caribbean that I used lumped this in with a nature preserve trail in the same area and rated both collectively a 2-3 on a scale of 5. That was extremely...More
