As if it weren’t already one of the top eco-travel destinations in the Caribbean and beyond, Trinidad and Tobago are working on a new Eco-Adventure Trails Project. This initiative will establish or improve 600 miles of trails on both islands, many of them pathways first cleared by the Amerindians.
Featuring towering trees, rainforest flowers, fresh springs, and views of the sea, the trails will serve hikers, mountain bikers, birders, photographers and other visitors. Phase one of the project, the Grande Riviere-to-Sans Souci segment of the northeast coast of Trinidad, is already underway.
This huge undertaking—Trinidad and Tobago have a lot of trails through forests and uplands—will require five years to complete. The Trinidad & Tobago Tourism Development Company Ltd. (TDC) is managing the effort, and the Trinidad & Tobago In-Coming Tour Operators’ Association is implementing it. For more information, visit goTrinidadandTobago.com.
