You can only spend so many hours lounging on the beach before you start to get restless; when that time comes, stretch your legs along the hiking trails in Grand Etang National Park. Occupying a large portion of central Grenada Island, Etang National Park and Forest Reserve teems with exotic wildlife. Grand Etang's full-time residents include armadillos, mona monkeys, and tropical mockingbirds. You're sure to encounter these magnificent creatures and more as you explore popular areas as Mount Qua Qua—known for its stunning views of the park—and the beautiful Grand Etang Lake. As one TripAdvisor user writes, "We've seen a lot of beautiful beaches in the Caribbean and South Pacific, but hiking down a rainforest filled with the aroma of fresh spices was absolutely incredible."
One of the most popular hikes leads to Seven Sisters Falls, located about 1.25 miles north of the Grand Etang Visitors Center. Visitors describe both the trail and the falls as particularly scenic. However, many warn that the trail can be challenging, so bring sturdy footwear and plenty of stamina!
Before you hit the trails, stop by the Visitors Center to pick up a map of the park; the Visitors Center welcomes visitors Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., and on weekends when cruise ships are docked. You may be asked to pay a fee to hike here, but you won't have to spend more than $3 to $6 XCD ($1 to $2 USD). For more information, check out the Grand Etang National Park website.
