Hiking Up Gros Piton, St. Lucia

Sunday, March 10

We planned to hike to the top of Gros Piton with our friends Bob, Christine, and Karen.  We took a beautiful taxi ride through the Pitons to the start of the trail.  They require all hikers to have an official guide with them, so after meeting our guide, we started the hike.  The trail was similar to other trails in the Caribbean with a lot of stairs and boulders, very well maintained.  There were beautiful views from various stopping points along the way.

Here are some pictures from our hike...
