This walk was very beautiful. We went anti-clockwise.

However, we went on a scorching bank holiday Monday and the place was PACKED. Also, be aware that the route shown on this app requires a walk across stepping stones through a shallow river. I can't imagine the stones being a challenge for anyone out walking, but today, because of the queue, it took about 20 min to cross. we ended up walking 5 min back down the trail across a bridge and back up on the far bank. The people in front of us in the queue had still not crossed!

All this to say, it's a stunning walk, with a variety of scenery, a river, woods, open fields and small but challenging changes in elevation. I can only imaging how nice it would be on a crisp winter morning (not the hottest bank holiday Monday since records began!!)

it a good thing to have

Sandy beach start of the hike with light drizzle. But the beauty of this penninsula is equal whatever conditions are. Climbing the head clouds started disappearing and we had the most spectacular nature experience out there.
It is a must walk this trail... forget the Wrath struggle cone to this free trail

Easy light walk with good views along the river.

Beautiful walking in Malvern

Lots of volcanic rock and tree roots to watch your footing on. South end was a bit swampy but overall hike was great. Use bug spray and take water! You will sweat

Leaping lizards!! There is so much volcanic limestone so please wear sturdy shoes. There were no great open spaces but the rock formations are really interesting. There is plenty of shade which was very nice.

We also saw lots of snakes, birds, a hermit crab and a very large tree frog!

Very nice, easy walk. Part along the river is very "soothing".

This is the only hiking trail found in the Cayman Islands. Easily accessible with a well defined trail. During rainy season some areas can get a bit muddy but its nothing too difficult. Lots of flora but very little fauna. Be on the lookout for the very shy Agouti and listen out for parrots.

If you want to cut the trip in half, take two cars and park one at either trail head. After the hike (if you end at the northern trail head) take a ride to Rum Point for a dip in the Caribbean Sea and have one (or two) of Rum Point's famous mudslide. Also nearby is the Queen's Botanical Park. This is definitely worth the visit as its home to quite a few blue iguanas.

Keep bug spray on hand and take 2-3 liters of water. Trainers/Sneakers are fine for the hike. Cotton is not advisable (the humidity is pretty high).

Happy trails!

Very enjoyable walk. Mostly easygoing terrain but with a few steep spots that required scrambling. Not ideal for very young children, but any active child over 6 should be fine. The Alltrails route passes through a carpark where a food van sells tea, coffee, ice cream, snacks etc. (This was open and trading even on Easter Sunday). The route is a nice mix of track, road and field. I was walking in the rain which made parts very muddy and restricted the views in the higher elevations, but even so I would recommend. Hiking solo at a moderate pace with a light pack took about 3 hours. Next time I'll take the diversion to look at Thor's Cave.

It was a beautiful and easy walking, with the sound of the river always making company. Highly recommended!
