As we reach Chaguaramas, when we cross the Cuesa River, turn right and we are on the Macqueripe Road. Drive up this road, pass the Tucker Valley Shooting Range until we come to a road on our right; turn here and park when you drive a little way in. We start our trek at this point. We make a left turn around the barrier and straight ahead on the now defunct roadway that was built by the Americans during the war; we will also see the old war bunkers.

We will now see ourselves getting more into the forest filled with trees that were planted by the Americans during their stay in this region. We will then come to a hill which is relatively steep and constant; a bit of fitness is recommended at this point. We trek up this constant hill for about 30 minutes or even less pending on your pace until we eventually reach to the top of the hill. We are now officially on the “Fond Palmiste Hill”, the hill that separates Diego Martin from Chaguaramas. This walk is a flat, but a very long walk, about 4 miles in all through pristine untouched forest. Ignore all side trails on either side and stick to the main trail. As we approach the half way point, the hill takes a steep descent all the way until we come to a big “T” junction. We take a well deserved break at this point.

From this junction, we veer left along clear trail once again. We will have to be careful, for at some points, the trail disappears due to overgrowth, but once we stick to the fundamentals of trekking, we will always be on track. The trail will lead us all the way down hill until we will eventually hear the quiet sounds of the coastal waters; we might even get a glimpse of the waters pending on the vegetation. The last trek uphill is now ahead of us and at this point when the muscles are becoming a bit fatigue, this is the time to put in a bit of bad mind and keep positive all the way on our last voyage, for the end in not too far off.

We trek until we will eventually come to a concrete road. We now trek all the way downhill until we come to an astounding bamboo forest called “The Bamboo Cathedral” as the bamboos on either side of the road converged together giving the shape of an arch. Quite fantastic to see this natural formation. Walking through the huge cluster of bamboos also gives an enchanting experience. A must experience. We are now at this point on our way to the Macqueripe Road. When we eventually reach on that road, our final trek is to walk back to our vehicles and that is about just over a mile. A walk to truly test your stamina and fitness level.
