St. Vincent’s Dark View Falls

This very short hiking adventure is packed with excitement as well as stunning natural beauty, with the reward of arriving at one of St. Vincent's most accessible and picturesque waterfalls.

Level: Easy

Duration: 15 minutes

Details: The hike to Dark View Falls is very short - just 10 to 15 minutes from the parking area - but it requires a very exhilarating river crossing. Don’t worry, you won’t get wet. This crossing is in the form of a bridge made of long bamboo poles. Once across to the other side, don’t be surprised if your legs continue shaking for quite some time afterwards! Pass through a clearing in the middle of a pretty bamboo grove before reaching a tall waterfall. Cascading down a high cliff face, Dark View Falls tumbles into two pools that are great for bathing. The falls flow from a tributary of the Richmond River on the Leeward section of the island, with an elevation of 110 feet and 229 feet above sea level respectively. The site opens from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm.
