Hike to Syndicate Falls

Rate this Adventure Dominica Syndicate Falls Trailhead

Added by Stuart Yee

This is an amazing hike 20 minutes from Ross School of Medicine and 25 minutes from Portsmouth that leads to an 100ft waterfall!

The Syndicate Falls hike is a relatively easy 15 minute hike with minimal elevation gain. In order to get there take a taxi 2.5 miles into the rain forest. The trailhead will start near lots of fruits and chickens nearby. You'll hike for a bit and have to pay $5 or $10 EC (Half price for kids 12-16, free 11 and under). From there you'll head downhill and have several river crossings so make sure you have comfortable water shoes or you excel at rock hopping. Follow the river upstream for a short ways and you'll encounter the spectacular Syndicate Falls and feel free to take a dip!
