*This Trail is Self Guiding Course

The Barre de L'isle Forest Reserve gets its name from the fact that it is a ridge that divides the Eastern and Western halves of St. Lucia. It takes approximately one hour to walk this 1.6km (one mile) trail and another hour to climb to the top of Mt. La Combe.

The Barre de L'isle trail provides panoramic views of certain parts of the island from four lookout points along the trail. One can have a mystic view of the rugged Mt. Gimie and the blue green rainforest from a distance. One can see Cul-de-Sac valley and the Caribbean Sea on the West from a vantage point, and a commanding view of the Mabouya Valley and Fond d'Or beach on the Atlantic coast on the East.

It is the easiest trail to access from the town of Castries and Rodney Bay area, just 30 min drive from Castries, located along the highway between Castries and Dennery.
