The Vermont Nature Trail takes you through lush rainforest with an amazing variety of tropical flora,beautiful scenery and a chance to see the famous St. Vincent Parrot in its natural habitat. Majestic cliffs reach for the sky, giving way to sweeping valleys. Ambient temperatures and abundant rainfall give rise to profusion in the growth of vegetation. The trail is in the picturesque Buccament valley within the St. Vincent Parrot Reserve and the more encompassing proposed Central Forest Reserve.

Looking to get off the beaten path? Vermont nature trail is a beautiful secluded rainforest hike. Don't bother with the guide, trail is really easy to follow. Tricky to find though. Trail head exits right off the leeward highway just past kingstown

We had a beautiful hike along the trails. There is a lot of wild life and the jungle rainforest is amazing. Out of the way but worth the trip.
