Length: 9.9 mi • Est. 4 h
Wayaka Trail connects with Hell Trail, a mountain biking favorite, that runs east and west. This trail features some amazing trees especially, wayaka trees with bark that looks like jigsaw puzzle pieces. There are many palu di sia korá trees, sometimes called tourist trees because of the red peeling bark. Look for oliba trees and mesquite trees and brasia trees too. Show more

Length: 1.6 mi • Est. 38 m
Park at Dos Pos and walk to the trailhead. This is an amazing trail beginning in a valley where there are many lora parrots and guayaba trees. It ends on top of a hill with an incredible view of Saliña Goto. You will see many types of birds and plants- bromeliads, cacti, olibia trees, and a huge twisted gumbo-limbo tree with its red bark. From the plateau on the top, you can look south to watch cruise ships arriving at Kralendikj. You’ll see the windmills on the east coast if you look through the foliage. Some spots on the trail have loose stones and it is easy to slip and fall. Take care on your way down from the top.Show more

Length: 2.2 mi • Est. 53 m
To hike this trail, you must first pay the entrance fee for the Washington Slagbaai National Park. The park closes at 5 PM so, the park requires that you begin your hike by noon to be able to leave the park in time. The road is passable in a truck but not a car. The trail is well marked and has great features such as, walking through a forest of cacti and spotting goats hiding in the scrub. This is not an easy hike, but the view from the top is well worth the effort. To get to the summit you will need to scramble up some rock ledges and walk across a short hogs back.Show more

Length: 2.1 mi • Est. 51 m
A long flat hike with little shade but the wind and ocean views make it well worth the time. You will see a calm lagoon and a thin channel with wild ocean waves, Boka Washikemba. There are lots of cactus and lizards. Goats and donkeys sometimes visit the Punta Blanku Plain by the ocean. One tree on the route is a Buttonwood Mangrove that the wind has forced along the ground so, it is now known as the longest tree on the island. You will want to leave the trail to explore Boka Washikemba and take some dramatic photos of the waves, the patterns in the coral, and the plastic trash mixed in the driftwood.Show more

Length: 0.9 mi • Est. 21 m
This trail is within the Washington Slagbaii Park so, you will need to pay for admission. Park just outside the entrance and walk to the start of the climbing trail. At the end of the hike, it is a short walk back to the park entrance. This is well described as a 'climbing trail' because much of the trail is jumping, balancing, and climbing between volcanic rock. The view is worth the scramble up and down and, it is a small enough mountain that it won’t take too long to make the trek. You will see many kinds of cacti and trees. A few have been labeled so you will learn the name of the species. At the panoramic view, look for the descending trail just to the left of the sign. Show more

Length: 1.4 mi • Est. 33 m
This is an easy hike with many beautiful sights. After a walk along a dirt road, this trail goes through a gate (to keep out goats) before descending into a canyon with cliffs that are full of dark hollows and sharp ledges. The trail ends at a large rock formation. On the way, you'll see many native trees, some of which are old trees with branches that are twisted in fascinating patterns. There is a platform you can climb to see over the trees to the sea. Show more
