  • This trail starts at the Petrin Visitor’s Center along the main trail into the Black River Gorges park. Don’t be fooled by the closed gate, you can walk in. But, be aware, the park closes at 3:30PM! T...  more »
  • Hiking tour in the Black River Gorges National Park via the Colophane Trail to the Macchabee Viewpoint with great views over the gorge to Tamarin and the sea. Well signposted path with entry at the ranger station at Grand Bassin. Tour length about 11km, just over 2h walking time, technically simple with but uniquely steep descent after the pavilion of Viewpoints. Recommended, but not as impressive views as at Black River Peak.

  • This is a great viewpoint. However the trail is quite strenuous depending on where you start. In case you start from the Black River visitor center it's steep so be prepared for that. It's 90% uphill. In case you come from the other side it's much easier, but maybe also less rewarding 😀
  • The trail is in bad shape and poorly marked, but the view from the top is worth the effort. Going down, you might take a different route and get to see the fruit bat colony.
