SATURDAY 15TH JULY 2017
Meeting time: 7:00am
Meeting place: Eric Williams Medical Complex
Estimated duration of hike: 5 hours
Degree of difficulty of hike: (5) Moderately Challenging
Welcome to "Cumana Village", North-Eastern Trinidad where we start our trek from the well-known "Anglais Road". Flat terrain all the way as we trek towards the Northern Range. We eventually reach to "Self-Help Road" where the terrain now becomes undulating as we go along. There is one notable uphill trek that will reach us to the summit of our trek. Along the summit, we will come to an old cocoa estate that will lead us down a steady hill until we come to a stream which signals that we have reached "Sans Souci Village"....first official stop off.
Second leg of this trek takes us on the "Paria Main Road" where we trek along this road until we divert from the Main Road on to a side road to our right and follow this road onward until we are on the North coastline where trekking here is pleasant through nature all the way until we finally reach to "Grande Riviere Village". We trek our final stage along Paria Main Road until we reach to "Hosang Street" where our transport will be. Good bathing by the lagoon meeting the Caribbean Sea.
