“An intense and beautiful tour through Haiti's southeastern mountains.”— Kat W
The hike starts quite steeply; you'll have a few paved or cobbled hills, but they will be the only ones between you and Seguin. The route next changes from dirt to gravel to loose stones—the stones can be larger than softballs! You'll pass homes and farms—we noticed that most people tend to all grow the same crop (green onions) when we passed through.
After about 7.0 miles, the brutal uphill ends, and you'll find yourself in the remnants of Haiti's cloud forest. The air can become quite cool here and the nights chilly. My group stayed at Kay Winnie at L'Auberge Visite. If you search for Furcy, Seguin, Jacmel, or Kay Winnie, you'll find a host of information.
