Hikefest 2011: Soufriere Estate to Bellevue Chopin

This year?s Hike Fest started with a Moderate hike (10.8km) from the beautiful village of Soufriere to Bellevue Chopin; which showcases segment two of the Waitukubuli National Trail.

The Soufriere Estate to Bellevue Chopin trail highlights an old slave route, old estates and historic buildings reminds us of Dominica?s history of a plantation society and the era of colonization

Some of the areas of interest on this trail are: Old slave route, Sulphur springs, Traditional living, Palmiste Ridge (optional), Livestock & small agricultural farming, Charcoal production and Historic buildings (Palmiste to Bois Cotlette Route)

Despite the rainy conditions all throughout the hike, it was a beautiful trail, and I will definitely walk the trail again. Here are some few pictures that I was able to take without getting my camera wet?.enjoy!
