A steep drive up (about 2 km) with little room for passing another car. Not much room at the top to park but there is a steep footpath to the very peak. The 'Loterie Farm' resort (restaurant, pool, extreme zip lines) is worth a visit although expensive. A little higher is a viewing platform with magnificent panoramas.

Zip-line/obstacle course is fun....not as extreme as some other places, so it's a good beginner experience. Be sure to arrive before cruise ship groups!

We spent the morning here at Paradise Peak.
We hiked up the mountain.It is very steep in places,so wear good shoes.
We made it to the top.
Beautiful view.
Need to come back to spend the day at the fresh water pool.
This is a very cool place to spend some time

The manager of the hotel we stayed in highly recommended that we go up to Paradise Peak (Pic Paradis) but warned us of what so many of the reviewers here have found. Robberies occur. So she said that the way to get to Paradise Peak safely is to take the trail that goes up the mountain in Loterie Farm. Loterie Farm is a private estate which is well taken care of, and quite safe. You get to it by taking the road leading to Paradise Peak. In a short distance, you see a sign for Loterie Farm on the right. Loterie Farm has a trail which goes up to the top and takes about two hours. However, if you only want to go half way and turn back, you can do that too.

Is it worth the climb all the way to the top, even when done safely via the Loterie Farm trail?
If you get to the top, it is probably a great view. I don't know. We only went up half way, but there were some great views even from where we went. Whether a great view is worth the climb is up to you. We didn't do it for the view. We did it because the climb takes you through something like a rain forest. Nothing like this exists anywhere else on the island. It is beautiful. Having gone up half way up, and spent an hour in this beautiful environment, we both enjoyed it thoroughly and we both recommend it heartily.

I read far too many reviews telling visitors to beward of leaving you car at the top of the road. So, we didn't. Indeed it is a very steep road (though not the steepest on the island! Trust me!). Kept little 4-banger in Drive1 and pedal to the metal and got to the top. Met locked gates and no parking to be had. There is perhaps a small turn, VERY SMALL, turn-off from the road. No parking area to speak of. Too many people have had cars broken into here so we just chalked it up as a nice scenic drive. Turned around and went back down. Still had nice views but we didn't park and hike to the top. If you want to do that I'd suggest parking at Loterie Farm and trying from there.
