This is a 115-mile long distance walking trail - the first of its kind in the Caribbean. On September 18th, the trail was badly damaged during the passage of a category 5 (the worst category) Hurricane Maria. Many trees have fallen along the trails, blocking access, as well as numerous landslides and soil erosion. Work has begun at a steady pace, however the Trail's Management Unit doesn't have the type of human resource necessary for clearing the magnitude of this damage. As a result, we are calling on volunteers who are willing to assist in Dominica as part of the rebuilding process.

Work would involve operating chainsaws and other equipment necessary to cut and clear away hundreds of fallen trees. There will also be replanting and beautification involved.
Hiker huts and cots within large rooms. Food will be provided but bringing food is encouraged due to limited supplies of some foods currently since the storm.
Time off can involve visiting different communities and visiting the Emerald Pool waterfall. Other sites can be visited when they are open. Work is ongoing island wide.

Dominica is a unique destination known as the nature island of the Caribbean for its green pristine beauty. During a cultural exchange, one would learn about our cultural heritage, the history of our people, our ways of life, the gaining of independence from Britain, the development of the trails, the largest settlement of some of the Caribbean's earliest settlers right here on island - the Kalinago Indians, our music and dance, our food, our Creole language infused from our African, Kalinago and European ancestry, and so much more.
