Favorite part of the trail was definitely the top lol. My driver never climbed it before and was like "I'll climb it with you" which was cool cuz I was there alone(wife and friends stayed back). When I got there I was in flip flops and my guide asked if I was hiking in those(my boots where still in the car), I said to her "doesn't everybody?" She didn't laugh lol. She was cool though. It wasn't that bad however it's a continuous climb up and if you stop too long you probably won't finish. Don't get me wrong it went through my mind a few times while I was grabbing roots and clawing through dirt. The couple of lookout points had great views. Don't do what I did and throw two 1/2 liter bottles of water in your pockets, bring a small backpack with plenty of water. There is someone at the top selling beer, water and fruit. The driver and I crushed it in 1-1/2 hours. I'm in my 40's and the driver was in his late 20's and I wasn't gonna let him leave me behind(even though he was about 15 meters ahead the whole time) which gave me the motivation to push on up. I suggest you be in somewhat shape and a good mentality to conquer this gem. The top is rewarding, trust me. Be careful coming down it's definitely not the same and steeper lol. We were able to get back to the base in an hour, we were moving quite fast. If you're in shape and like hiking then I highly suggest it, I also suggest to work your calfs alot cuz mine were on fire the next day lol. I should've put more time on the stair climber than on the tread. Good luck. Next year Petit Piton(Maybe lol).
