Enbas Saut Falls Trail Hiking

East of Soufriere and Fond St James, the Enbas Saut Falls Trail is a 4km loop. The route is at the foot of the highest mountain on the island, Mount Gimie. The trek combines rainforest, cloud forest, Elfin Woodlands and wildlife. The trail is known for two cascading waterfalls and deep swimming pools.

The trailhead is about 8km inland from the west coast. The drive time is at least 30 minutes from Soufriere and 100 minutes from Castries. The roads may be impassible during the rainy season from July to December so make sure to call ahead on road conditions.

To reach the trailhead from Soufriere, follow inland road east to Fond St Jacques. Continue along the narrow track on the left near the zinc-roofed cement bus stop in the village center for 5km to ranger station. The trailhead is to the left of the ranger station.

A permit is requried to hike on forest reserve trails. A professional guide may also be required, and is strongly recommended in any case. Both are easy to obtain for a small fee from the Forest & Lands Department at (758) 450-2231 or 450-2078, or by contacting the National Trust at (758) 450-5005. It is a punishable offense under the Forest Soil And Conservation Ordinance Act to attempt to access the forest reserve trails without a permit and, when required, a guide.

A guide is not currently required, but make sure to check at the ranger station.

Note, if you plan to use a GPS device on St Lucia, the MAP DATUM is DOS 3 Lighthouse 1955 St Lucia.
