Trail Guide

Waitukubuli Trail Guide

Journey with us through our island’s mountainous interior, climb the slopes of steaming rain forests, descend dramatic gorges, cross countless rivers and take in spectacular waterfalls and steaming sulphur springs. Or walk the grassy paths that meander alongside cooling streams and pass through green valleys – either way lose yourself in our paradise!


Segments 1 and 2 of the Waitukubuli National Trail traverse the southern part of Dominica – a region where agriculture and farming have traditionally been a way of life for many, and where the vegetation is mostly scrub woodland mixed with dry rainforest.

Segments 3-5

Segments 3, 4, and 5 are the 3 segments of the trail considered to being within the Morne Trois Pitons National Park World Heritage Site. Well regarded as the segments with spectacular natural features, a total of 7 communities support life along the segments.

Segment 6

Segment 6 of the Trail features the Kalinago people – our islands indigenous inhabitants. Trekking through this segment opens up a living museum displaying the lives of these people. A tough trek, most of the segment is along the Atlantic coast and goes through 6 of the hamlets within the Carib Territory.

Segments 7 - 11

Segments 7, 8, 9, 10, and 11 are regarded as the forested sections of the trail, and are the only segments that do not go through communities, and access is generally described as – one way in, and one way out. Regarded as tough, be prepared to encounter wild nature and adventure along these segments.

Segments 12 - 14

Segments 12, 13, and 14 traverse the northern section of Dominica, and open up communities regarded for their very strong cultural appeal. The vegetation along these segments is a mix of scrub woodland, dry forest, and littoral woodland.
