My husband loves waterfalls, so we decided to find one shown on the map, but not known well even among locals. We took the way north from Hope (South Coast) - you need to ask somebody which turn to take because it is easy to miss a it and got confused. Initially we wanted to find Craig Hall Waterfall but no one could give us right directions.
Heading towards Mason Hall you need to take a turn right (kind of muddy and rocky road) in the area called Easterfield. Still, the best is to ask locals which one is correct. There you must be prepared to drive through the muddy road in the rain forest attended mostly by local farmers. Telling the truth, we met maybe 2 people on our way and not more than 10 houses. Finally we couldn’t even see cattle on the road which meant the area is completely inhabited.
After rough ride with astonishing view of bamboo and tropical forest we saw the steps of Hillsborough Dam. This area is perfect for birds’ watchers, so do not forget your binoculars.
We almost lost our hope to find the Waterfall, but we saw a little boy looking like Mowglee from The Jungle Book with his big machete. He told us the waterfall is just couple of minutes from where we were.
Be careful because it is easy to miss little stairs down the hill off the road. Keep on looking right if you are heading from the Hillsborough Dam.
There are two Waterfalls over there. It is an oasis of peace and beauty. We had a feeling that there were no tourists visiting this place from years. Who knows, maybe it was true...
I was one of the most amazing trips during our stay in Tobago. Very magical and adventurous. You can feel like a real discoverer...
If you do not have enough of time for adventures, just take a shorter way. Instead of taking a turn in Hope, go a little bit further and take a turn in a beautiful village of Studley Park towards Green Hill.
