Why locals love it

Le Morne Brabant mountain is a cultural landmark. It was the refuge for runaway slaves, and the tragic spot where many committed suicide from fear of being caught. Public access to the mountain has been granted in 2016, after a long legal battle with private land owners to climb this UNESCO world heritage site.

Why you should visit it

The trail is 3.5km long and very steep: from sea level to 555m at the top. The first part, up to the mid-view point, requires moderate effort (walk only). The second part, from the mid-view point to the top, requires climbing (ropes are available). Children are not allowed to hike the second part and it is not recommended under rainy weather.

Special tip

Avoid weekends and prefer and sunny & dry day.
