The "Cot" located also in the Centre Hills. The Hike starts above the National Trust Compound. Highlights include the ruins of "The Cot", the one time summer cottage of the influential Sturge Family. A hike through the lush vegetation also affords breathtaking views of the villages below including some of the Exclusion Zone. A duck pond is located further along the trail.

Quite a hike to get to the start of the trail, but worth it. Hire a guide! It's easy to get lost as the trails are not well marked.

The Sturgeon Family built a summer retreat in the hills above Salem, Montserrat. The hike takes you past lovely plantation groves of coconut, banana and other tropical vegetation. Fabulous views along the way!

Fairly easy trail. Definitely one that is marked well. Nice walk through lush foliage. Out and back on the same trail.

Again, a steep climb and not "light" as per trail map but a very enjoyable walk all the same. Great views all across the island to Plymouth on way down.

Stay on the main road going up from the College, follow it right to the end and don't go into the field on the left with the trail map.
