A couple days ago, I posted this photo (above) to our Facebook page and none of our readers could figure out where Cathedral Falls was located or how to get there!
So the originator of the photo – Delroy Williams – has provided a simple guided photo tour so that you can get there safely 🙂
Where is Cathedral Falls?
Getting to the location of Cathedral Falls is quite easy… just make your way to Titou Gorge. If you’re setting out from Roseau, the drive to Laudat is approximately 20 minutes long. See the map below:
Here is Delroy’s take on getting being on location at Laudat and getting to Cathedral Falls:
For those who want to get there, drive into Laudat village at the extreme east of the Roseau Valley. After you drive past the balancing tank (of the hydro electrical supply station) with the “old” geothermal drill test site to the left, you descend via a concrete road about 100 meters. To the left of the road, you will find a shed.
To the left of the shed, you will see a Do Not Trespass Sign in red. This is the commencement of the track to get to Cathedral Falls.
It’s a short hike (25 minutes for an amateur hiker) but still very tricky, needing good hiking shoes, some rope climbing skills and a small upstream swim in the river. But it is more than worth the effort.
Delroy was kind enough to share his account with us and I’ll be going up there for sure! But what about you? Will you take the short hike to Cathedral Falls? I promise, you won’t be disappointed!
