Mt. St. Catherine is the highest peak in Grenada, and it lies in the parish of St. Mark’s.  Every year during the St. Mark’s celebrations villagers embark on a trip through the amazing rain forests of St. Mark’s, and climb to the highest peak on the island, Mt. St. Catherine.  There a picnic is held before villagers begins the decent back to civilization. There is usually a clean up of the area, as visitors to the highest peak throughout the year, does not always take their rubbish with them.

It is a well attended event, and many villagers await that time of the year to experience the beauty that lies in St. Mark’s beyond civilization.

Although Mt. St. Catherine’s peak lies in St. Mark’s, it is the most difficult to get to from St. Mark’s… be prepared for an adventure.

The St. Mark’s waterfalls lies within the mountains of St. Mark’s, and in previous years villagers was able to visit the waterfall to and from Mt. St. Catherine, this particular route has been said to be impassable since the demise of Hurricane Ivan in 2004, and not many stories of villagers using that route has been  heard…

… an adventure awaits… invite someone to share the experience.

(Walk with sufficient water/water bottle, things to snack on, and something dry/warm/waterproof to wear at the summit)
