DO­MINICA RE­OPENS HIK­ING TRAILS

The Star (St. Lucia) - - REGIONAL -

Dis­cover Do­minica Au­thor­ity, in col­lab­o­ra­tion with the Forestry Di­vi­sion of the Min­istry of Agri­cul­ture and Fish­eries, has an­nounced that a num­ber of hik­ing trails, in­clud­ing the fa­mous Boiling Lake, have re­opened. The Forestry Di­vi­sion has worked tire­lessly to en­sure that trails which were dam­aged by Trop­i­cal Storm Erika are ac­ces­si­ble.

Trail users are ad­vised to ex­er­cise cau­tion as some fea­tures may have changed. Guides are rec­om­mended as there are land­scape changes on cer­tain trails. Hik­ers are en­cour­aged to use ap­pro­pri­ate hik­ing gear.

The Forestry Di­vi­sion con­tin­ues to as­sess the is­land’s hik­ing trails and will pro­vide up­dates once assess­ments have been made and nec­es­sary re­pairs have been com­pleted.
