La Monter is difficult enough for a correct point of view

So beautiful climb! Ideally, it is a hike to be done early in the morning to better see the landscape. Be in good physical shape

Very nice hike! Hyper nice and fun to walk! Not too long and beautiful little waterfall in the end!

Great hike along the coast and through mangroves. Saw numerous crabs, butterflies and critters. Definitely recommend early start as sun can be brutal but ocean breezes help. I would do the decline first in the loop as it is an asskicker if done at the end. Trail is rocky at times and generally easy to follow. No water or restrooms available. There is a gravel road prior to trailhead that can add 20 minutes to the hike if you don't want to drive to the trailhead.

Nice hike on dry and not too warm days. Start your hike early in the morning as the mangroves can be steamy between noon and 15 PM. Be sureto bring enough water/ drinks and some food. Don’t forget your sun protection and a hat/ cap.

Great hike. It’s rare to have a trail that offers so many unique views on the ascent. Every ten minutes we had another view, like a Russian doll that keeps giving you more and more and more. Driving to the beginning of the trail is like driving the Amalfi Coast, but up all the way. The trail is very well defined. It is fairly steep all the way up. About 80% in you have to walk over a lot of wet and smooth rocks as the trail become thinner. I had to use my hands and butt a few times. We start our ascent around 6am to beat the heat. As we climbed down the sun was finally on our backs. It took us 3:40 including breakfast at the end of the yellow trail. I loved this hike.

We hit the trail at 9:30 and it was an immediate steep incline, not letting up for a good 30 minutes. It is a consistently steep (but gorgeous) hike! I was expecting King Kong’s face to emerge from the clouds - it was a set-of-a-movie beautiful. The rain was intermittent but never enough to make it too muddy until we got up into the clouds. Then it became incredibly windy and more wet and humid. There is an old abandoned hut about 20 minutes from the top and from that point on the wind increased until it was like a hurricane- pushing us around. The rocks at the top were slippery and I cut my ankle when I slipped and my foot got wedges between rocks. We felt like we were in danger for a few minutes when the wind was blowing us around at the top (and we couldn’t see any of the drop offs because of the clouds. We were a good 20 feet from what seemed like a drop off though, and we were fine. Such a great adventure! This hike is for reasonably fit people. Reasonably fit people who aren’t adventurous won’t like this hike, as there is scrambling required in the top section. I went with a 9 year old and an 11 year old, and they (and I) had an AWESOME time!

Beautiful hike! Magnificent view! Unfortunately, sargasse problem during our visit. Environmental scourge. I recommend everyone to do it!

more of a walk than a hike but stunning views. almost completely shaded, lush, and a charming restaurant at the end in the rainforest. (closed mondays) approx 10 miles round trip if you start from Le Carbet waterfront but could rent a car to the trail head. Was totally open and well travelled.

The hike to the rim of the crater from Aileron is moderate. The trail up is generally in good condition and heavily trafficked. There are a few scrambles and it’s muddy in places so wear hiking boots or good shoes. The rim walk going counterclockwise starts off easy then turns moderate as you approach the northern end. If you carry on all the way around, the second half is hard! Long vertical scrambles on wet rocks, dense mist and strong winds most days. On the second half you’re hiking into the caldera and it’s amazing. Read the official guidebooks and come prepared. Wear proper clothes, hiking boots, layers and a raincoat. Bring water, food and a compass. You don’t need a guide, but a knowledgeable one will enhance your experience. Note: the elevation gain for this hike is incorrect. The hike from Aileron with the caldera loop (without the summit) was around 2,500 ft (762 metres) in gain.

Us Canadians aren't used to some sheer dropoffs in public recreation areas, as is the case with parts of this trail. However, the vistas are spectacular, and the trail is definitely worthy of a return trip. There was a downpour for a portion of our trek, which made paying attention to one's footwork even more important. The hisyory of this trail also makes it a must see.

From the Trailhead it looks so steep as you watch people head up the first major ascent on this trail. However, as you’re headed up that first section there are nice steps and solid rock along the way. Then you walk along the ridge that’s pretty level, watch out for the muddy spots. From there it gets much more difficult, with a lot of scrambling up and down steep sections. Be prepared to put on a jacket at the top as it’s quite windy and chilly. Beautiful and challenging. Maybe the toughest 4 miles I’ve ever hiked!

My review was actually used as the description above! Stupendous views, and passes through several ecosystems - mangroves, rocky shore, scrub forest.
