Hiking to St. Margaret's Falls


St. Margaret's falls also known as Seven Sisters Falls Located in St. Andrew, Grand E'tang National Park.

My trip to this beautiful gem was filled with laughter, new experience, overwhelmed with excitement and constantly asking, Are we there yet?

In order to reach your destination one would need to take a no. 9 buses depending on your location or your own personal vehicle. The use a map can come in handy or ask one of the locals around the area to prevent being lost.


The Journey....


 We took a bus from Grenville, which is the town of St. Andrew and drop off at our location in St. Andrew. On arrival, you can see the sign to the falls on the left side of the road. The road leading to the falls had two various path: 1)Pathway where vehicles can drive in at a certain point. 2) The actual trail filled with wet mud (depending on weather), stones/ pebbles and bamboo steps strategically place to prevent any falls.

With my backpack filled with water ,snacks and fresh changed of clothes, I was eager to see this beautiful gem that seemed forever to meet.
On viewing this amazing site, I wanted to venture above the falls to view the other sisters. Lets just say, climbing reminded me of my Hike to Mt. St. Catherine, it wasn't that bad, but more so stiff. With my trusted friend, we started walking bare feet due to the early showers that had fallen, walking with slipper (wet mud and slippers are not friends) in hand and my Galaxy S3 to capture picture we ventured off; no need to worry, certain trees were mark with yellow ribbons to ensure you're on the correct trail and precaution was taken in case one get lost.
We did saw 2 or 3 of the other sisters and though we wanted to walk further, outside was getting dark so we had to turn back to enjoy the lower two waterfalls.

Of course I took pictures, the water was cool as expected and gave this soothing therapeutic feeling; snacks eaten and hydrated ourselves with water, the only thing I forgot to pack was an insect repellent, but I guess the bites were worth it, sort of.
