Tripadvisors tilnærming til anmeldelser
Hver Tripadvisor-anmeldelse går gjennom et automatisert sporingssystem før den legges ut. Dette systemet samler inn informasjon som svarer på følgende spørsmål: Hvordan, hva, hvor og når. Hvis systemet oppdager noe som muligens strider imot retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet, blir anmeldelsen ikke publisert.
Når systemet oppdager et problem, kan en anmeldelse automatisk avvises, sendes til anmelderen for bekreftelse eller gjennomgås manuelt av teamet vårt av innholdsspesialister. Disse spesialistene jobber døgnet rundt for å opprettholde kvaliteten av anmeldelsene på nettstedet vårt.
Teamet vårt sjekker hver anmeldelse som er lagt ut på nettstedet og bestrides av fellesskapet vårt for ikke å møte retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet.

Beautiful hike! Didn't see any animals, other than really cool butterflies...and a wasp that stung me (might want to bring a mini first aid kit - I used sanitizer, which worked too), but the plants/water/walk were stunningly beautiful. Moderately challenging - slight incline, uneven path, a couple hours. Definitely recommend!

O’Neil is a very knowledgeable guide and made our experience just what we wanted. He truly knows everything about this rainforest, his backyard as he puts it. Feel confident when making a reservation with him.

I’ve always wanted to hike in the St. Kitts Central Forest Reserve National Park, so, we rented a car and drove up the west coast of the island to the grounds of the once majestic Wingfield Estate, where I had heard a number of hiking trails originated. Once we got there, I talked to a vendor about hiking in the area and asked if there were any local guides we could hire. A few phone calls later and a friendly fellow named Travis showed up and said he would be happy to take us into the jungle on what he called the “Bench Trail”.

Our hike started with a casual walk along a dirt road behind Wingfield Estate. We soon left the dirt road, following a narrow path into the jungle. The natural trail took us next to what appeared to be an old riverbank. Travis explained that the water was dammed and captured in cisterns much higher up the mountain. This part of the trail follows small pipes that bring clean water down into the local houses and businesses in Old Road Town and the surrounding area.

We stopped once in a while for Travis to show us various trees and plants bordering the trail. He explained that while some have edible fruit, others have leaves, bark, and roots that can be used for medicinal teas – Apparently curing everything from sore throats, indigestion, and stiff muscles to maybe even cancer. He brought to our attention the stand of almond trees we were walking under. Pretty cool to see the trail littered with partially eaten almond husks. We were a little aghast to come across the spike-covered sandbox trees. While intriguing to look at – don’t touch these horrors of the forest!

After about half an hour or so, we left the rainforest’s natural grocery store and pharmacy to head uphill. The trail twisted and turned around large trees constantly taking us higher. While a bit of a workout, it was relatively easy to hike although the incline did get steeper over time as the trail snaked up the mountainside. After another half hour or so, we were quite sweaty and breathing a little hard as we arrived at “the bench”. We grabbed a seat, although we didn’t rest for too long. After peering through a gap in the rainforest canopy, we could see that we were on the edge of a gully, or what they call a ghaut in St. Kitts. Peering down into the ghaut, it was clear that we had traveled a fair distance.

It was great to discover that Travis was taking us back on a slightly different route, as loop trails provide the opportunity to experience as much diverse terrain and flora as possible. As an exciting change of pace, the first part of this new trail included an unanticipated plunge down the hillside. We pretty much rappelled a short section of trail to quickly reach the gully floor.

At this point, we crossed the shallow stream to encounter something out of a Jurassic Park or Tarzan movie. There were vines of all sizes hanging everywhere. Pretty much a curtain or veil of vines. Travis explained how the vines grow out of the ground, climb up and tangle themselves around tree branches high in the sky, before reaching back to earth. He said the older ones secured to large trees are strong enough to hold the weight of an adult human, and Travis proved his point! OK, that was pretty cool!

Back at Wingfield Estate, we walked around the remains of the old stone structures. A few hundred years ago, this was one of the most dominant plantations on the island – The place just oozes with history. In the mid 17th century, it is believed to have been one of the Caribbean’s first rum distilleries!

Well worth visiting to see the old plantation and distillery buildings. It appears to be still, somewhat, work in progress, but the sights and associated information notice boards scattered around are interesting and the surrounding setting is beautiful.

This was an interesting stop on a tour of the whole island. Seeing the remains of the Firing Tunnel where sugar cane was burned, rum made, etc., was interesting and the setting on the edge of the rain forest made a nice short walk/break. We did not hike the entire trail but saw a number of plants and had a feel for what an extensive say might be. We booked the tour at the port after our cruise ship docked and were in an open trolley with our driver narrating as he drove and at each stop. He pointed out numerous sites in town before heading out to the road which circled the island, up and over to where the Atlantic and Caribbean can be seen on either side of a narrow stretch from a high point, with the road switchbacking below...beautiful. While the ride was quite bumpy, it was a nice way to get a feel for many aspects of the island, from riding through small towns/neighborhoods, riding right along the sea, up to the rainforest, over the mountain, and back to the dock. The guide was with the Paradise Island Tours and provided beverage breaks along the way.

The jungle was good, not spectacular. Saw monkeys and mongoose. A wide variety of plants,but our guide didn't know much about the local flora or fauna. The hike was arduous (he gave us the choice of easy way or hard way- we took the hard way) If you don't cardio a couple times a week, may no be for you.

We enjoyed walking around the grounds of the estate, down part of the nature walk into the rainforest and over to the manor. Also had the chance to meet a pet monkey and drink water straight from some coconuts. There were mostly guided groups passing through, either going zip lining or atving, but individuals are also welcome (we went as a couple and two kids). If you have time, get a gold drink at the smoothie bar!

O'Neil and his son "Jr." were just terrific. O'Neil was extremely knowledgable about the plants, animals and history of the rain forest, and his sincere love of the forest comes through in his stories and facts. He has been doing tours for 40 years. While on his tour, others came by us in a hurry, while we spent good time discussing the beauty of the area. Wear good walking shoes, and there is an assisted climb, but was no problem for our 50 year-old something group or the young children along with the tour. We booked through the marriotte and have not found O'Neil "On-line". I'm sure he is a fixture in St Kitts tour industry, so you can probably ask anyone to point you in his direction, and they can help you get in contact with him. I would STRONGly recommend spending the time to find this tour!!
