Enbas Saut Waterfall Trail

The trail to the Enbaus Saut waterfall is about 2.5 miles (4 km) each way. The roundtrip walk is 45-60 minutes. There are quite a few steps, which may be a problem for some.

Enbas saut means ?below the falls,? and this popular trail has two waterfalls and pools at the head of the Troumassee River.

Located at the foot of Mt. Gimie, St. Lucia's tallest peak, the trail offers a mix of true rain forest and cloud forest. Birds common to the area include the St. Lucian parrot, the St. Lucia black finch, the blue-hooded euphonia and mountain whistler.

You'll walk down on solid ground as well as scores of wooden steps before reaching the waterfall and natural pool that's a popular swimming spot.

Lots of ferns and gommier, mahogany and mahoe trees are along the trail and surrounding the falls. This is a self-guided trail and there may not be anyone to collect the usual trail fee. But come prepared.

Trailhead: 6 miles east of Soufriere. Take the road on the right hand side of the Catholic Church, the same road that also leads to the Botanical Gardens and Diamond Falls.

Follow the “To the Rain forest” signs. Leaving the main road, you'll drive up a badly rutted track best suited to a 4WD but a passenger car can make it if you're careful. Soon there is a ranger hut with a large sign on the left marking the trail.
