  • The starting point of Middleham Falls Dominica trail.        

The trail starts on a narrower and muddy path. This path immediately starts to incline on wooden steps for a fairly long time until the path levels out.  

As the trail continues up the hill, you will start to climb more wooden stairs. As you gradually make your way up the trail you will encounter several twists and turns as you approach the ridge, where it tends to get fairly steep.  

The trail contains numerous shallow pools and streams.

As you trek through the rainforest you will be able to see the Waterfall through the trees.  Bit further on, you will begin to see a sign pointing out that the trail continues left when you’ve crossed a little bridge – This bridge is located directly over another river ->This is where the path starts to descend to Middleham Falls Dominica! 

 It’s also got a little stream that you have to cross before getting to the falls and you might get your shoes wet if you don’t want to. 

The decline continues gradually for about 15 minutes until you are greeted by the picturesque tumbling falls! 

There’s also a surrounding mist in the air caused by the forceful crashing of the water into the pool, which creates an eerie mystique. Also makes for a spectacular background for pictures! 

Although the pool can be quite cold, it’s still very swimmable. The best way to test this out will be to uphold tradition by cliff jumping off the side of the roaring waterfall, and plunging into the cold pool waters.
