The Piton's are absolutely breathtaking. You cannot visit St. Lucia without getting up close and personal with these historic beauties!

They are the symbol of the island. Beautiful mountains. We didn't go up by trail just saw them from the boat and took pictures

The pitons are very majestic and a must see while in St. Lucia. Some friends hiked up the Petit Piton but it was a very strenuous hike.

We booked a boat excursion over from our cruise ship, and got there pretty quickly. The mountains are picture worthy, but snorkeling was my draw. When we first pulled in and I saw the rather small roped off area, I was immediately disappointed. It was...More

I have not hiked that trail, but I am a runner and have done some hiking in the US. It is so different, because of the incline and the heat, than any other hike, more like a climb. You are pretty much constantly walking up... More
